CARFAX shows an impact to the front end in 1996 and the seller has indicated there is no further information available regarding this.

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.
