DT: 1993 Porsche 928 GTS

Up for auction is this rare 1993 Porsche 928 GTS finished in Silver Metallic with a removable Dark Grey matte vinyl wrap.  This Canadian-spec example represents one of a reported 406 GTS versions built for North America and features a powerful 5.4 L V8 engine paired with a 4-speed automatic transaxle.  Over $35k is said to have been invested by its previous owner in recent years including the installation of a full custom sound system, a refresh of the suspension, and service of the differential.  Now showing approximately 61k kilometers (38K miles) on the odometer, this 928 GTS is being offered by its seller in Texas accompanied by a recent appraisal, service records, and a clean title.

The factory Silver Metallic paint is said to have been kept in good condition with some minor imperfections underneath the removable Dark Grey matte vinyl wrap.  The GTS can be differentiated from the standard 928 by its wider rear fenders, aero mirrors, continuous rear light band, rear spoiler, and 17” Cup wheels that have been refinished in satin black on this example.  The front fog lights have been recently replaced and new tires were also installed within the last few thousand miles. CARFAX shows an impact to the front end in 1996 and the seller has indicated there is no further information available regarding this.

Inside, the driver is situated in a luxurious black leather interior stated to be in exceptional condition.  The sound system was recently upgraded with $7.5k worth of stereo equipment including Focal Speakers, a separate 5-channel amp, and a small JL audio subwoofer with an enclosure installed in the truck area. As well, there is a wireless phone charger installed in the center console along with a lightweight lithium-Ion AntiGravity battery in the trunk. The Porsche Classic radio pictured in the cabin is no longer functional an has recently been replaced with an OEM-style continental head unit. The rear cargo cover was just recently replaced, and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be working properly.

For the final evolution of the Porsche 928, the GTS was debuted with a redesigned 5.4 L 32-valve DOHC V8 engine capable of sending 345 HP and 369 lb.-ft to the rear wheels by way of a 4-speed automatic transaxle.  This drivetrain allows for a 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds and a top speed of over 170 MPH.  Over $35k is said to have been spent on upkeep in recent years with some items including a new differential pump and fluid, new suspension bushings, and new struts.  A collection of service records is available for reference, and the seller reports this GTS to be in brilliant mechanical order.

This sale will include a set of keys, service records, a recent appraisal, and a clean title.  Do not miss your chance to own one of the most collectible transaxle Porsches of all time.

    The first and only time I liked black wheels, and they look amazing on this car. The car looks menacing. Fantastic!!!

  • Siress (seller) 4 days, 16 hoursago

    @JNasty Spoke to the technician at TWPS. He explained that the front accident repair from 1996 did not correct the tow hook screw in point so you cannot screw in tow hook through the lower part of the bumper.

    @JNasty Hi I found it, it's upload file 124/126 - I see the note, I will reach out to TWPS to better understand the note.

  • Siress (seller) 5 days, 11 hoursago

    @JNasty hi can your note the file number in the upper corner where the note is. I uploaded all documents. The carfax notes front damage from 1996, I purchased the car some 21 years later.

  • JNasty (registered bidder) 5 days, 12 hoursago

    @Siress - thanks for all the transparency. To make my best deal tank offer, one of the docs you uploaded noted "poorly repaired damage" to the front. The Carfax and the listing revealed the accident. Can you comment more on that note?

    We had uploaded additional photos. If you have any questions. I will do my best to answer them. I only have knowledge of the history of my own ownership and some from the prior owner. With 6 cars and living in a condo, I have to trim my collection.

    Absolutely beautiful cars. I had a 94 GTS and enjoyed it very much. However, I have to say that spend most of my ownership at shop repairing it despite low millage. Ment to be not driven daily or prepare to spend some big money on it. Anything to do with engine you have to drop the whole thing. Compare to my air cooled cars, most parts are 5-6 times more to repair or replace. I had to repair the Thrust Bearing as if ignored will cost you a bundle, Electrical Gremlins, Timing Belt and Water Pump are common issue with all. Mercedes Trans is OK but is problematic at times. Still beautiful and best cruiser

    A new group of photos have been uploaded. I wanted to point out that both front dash corners are in excellent condition, as many of you know those corners are known to being to fold up from excess sun damage. The rear panels are also in excellent condition with no warping.

  • Siress (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @JNasty The hood is still slightly misaligned, you can see it in the photos. It is very slight.

    @Siress - got it, car in Austin, thanks.

  • Siress (seller) 1 week, 3 daysago

    @JNasty it’s okay. I used to live in California and moved to Austin TX. So those are all my photos with the most recent ones with the TX plates

  • JNasty (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Siress - Got it. So... Sorry, a little more confusion really looking at the photos. Is the car on CA plates and a CA title? Or are those Jonathan Ward's old plates? Now on Texas plates/title? Listing says "Austin" but you just referred to your "local northern cal porsche dealer." Only matters to me re: as I'm in CA thinking about baking shipping into my final bid calculation and CA SMOG steps/needs.

  • Siress (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @JNasty All wheels were properly prepared prior to powder coating them. I have uploaded photos from yesterday of all 4 wheels. If you need anything else please let me know. I have an action item to review hood fit.

  • Siress (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Siress @Siress

  • Siress (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @JNasty - I replaced both front fog lamps, you will see them in the updated photos. you can review all lenses from the updated photos. I can check the hood fit, but I would agree that there were stone chips in the front of the car, prior to wrap. Let me check the hood fit.

  • JNasty (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Siress - is this still true? Eg: hood fit not fixed? Were the lens cracks fixed and were the bits fixed when the wheels were painted? From the Fantasy Junction listing:

    "The car is in very good cosmetic condition with minor stone chips to the front of the car and a few other signs of wear and aging, but strong overall presentation. The panels are straight throughout and fit well other than the hood, which is a bit high at the back on one side. The Carfax reveals that the car was involved in a front end collision at some point in its life, although the current owner had the car thoroughly inspected and found no evidence, mechanical or cosmetic, of the collision other than the fit of the hood. The lights and lenses are excellent save for a hairline crack in one tail lamp lens and a crack in each fog lamp. Replacement fog lamps are included with the car. The glass is excellent with only light road wear t to the windscreen. The trim is excellent and the wheels are very good, with a handful of small areas of deterioration to the finish but no curb rash."

    @JNasty Thank you for finding these, I purchased it from Jonathan Ward (icon4x4) he bought it for his wife, but she wanted something faster so ended up getting a Panamera. The car was rarely driven, always stored inside and I had it wrapped almost immediately after I had services done at my local Porsche dealership in northern California.

    Assume no major paint damage from here before you wrapped it?

  • JNasty (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Siress - thanks, Revival did 928 work? Wild.

  • Siress (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @JNasty @JNasty. Revival did the electrical work & suspension work. I can get the details of the receipts.

  • Siress (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @JNasty @JNasty, hi sorry about that. Most likely for my icon Bus. I will get that removed. Thanks for calling it out. Let me see if I can find any photos pre-wrap.

  • JNasty (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Siress - highly confused by 1) $123K plus in ICON receipts clearly not for this car. 2) Revival CYCLES (???) receipts and 3) the Porsche Classic Radio died? Never head of that. Non confusion questions: any photos of paint pre-wrap?

    Greetings everyone, I am here to help answer any questions I can regarding Gunner, that is the name I gave my 928GTS. I have owned him for a little over 3 years and spent a good amount of that time bringing him back to his glory. Included in all the paperwork and receipts are some big $ items like replacing the TPMS system, Heat Seater System Rear Brakes, and most importantly Hunted down, and resolved the many ground issues which are most likely the reason why it kept being resold. In addition to making it a sound and reliable driver's car, I could not help myself in doing some cosmetic but reversible updates. The beautiful 3M vinyl wrap in a matte metallic grey along with the satin painted wheels, an extensive upgrade on the Soundsystem, and alarm without any modifications to the original door panels or speaker locations. In addition, I had the suspension upgraded. As a long time porsche owner, my 928 and 964 were babies until I took delivery of my Taycan. I found myself not driving the 928 and didn't like that it was just sitting. So I made the tough decision to find her a new owner who will enjoy and drive her as she needs to be. It still gets some of the best comments and responses when I am out driving. It was one of my dream cars as a kid. If it was yours too, here is an opportunity to own one that is ready to drive and enjoy. - Good Luck -- Tony
