THE PORSCHE 928

Unveiled at the Geneva Salon in 1977 and voted Car of the Year for 1978, the 928 was intended as an up-market replacement for the long-running 911, but in the event Porsche's rear-engined classic would outlive its younger sibling. The front-engined 928's stylish hatchback body featured aluminum doors, bonnet and front wings in the interests of weight saving, while ingenious impact-resistant 'bumpers' made of color-matched plastic were incorporated into the nose and tail. The V8 engine - Porsche's first - displaced 4.5 liters and produced 234bhp. A 5-speed transaxle gearbox or 3-speed automatic were the transmission options. In 1983 the 928S with its 4.7-liter engine arrived and then in 1987 the model was further revised and restyled, becoming the 928 S4. Its engine producing 320bhp courtesy of twin-cam, 16-valve cylinder heads and enlargement to 4,957cc, the S4 enjoyed a welcome top speed boost to 160mph.

In 1989 Porsche moved the game on with the even more powerful 928 GT, which with a top speed of around 170mph was the Stuttgart firm's fastest production car at that time, before launching the model's ultimate incarnation: the 928 GTS. Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1991, the final iteration GTS was made available to North America in spring of '92 as a '93 model. In this form the 928, now boasting a 5.4-liter engine producing all of 345bhp, lasted in production until the model's deletion in 1995. Porsche has not made anything like it since and today this appreciating modern classic enjoys an enthusiastic following worldwide.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This outstanding example of Stuttgart's highest performing 928 was special ordered in October of 1992 from Holbert Porsche in Warrington, PA and delivered the following July. Chassis PS820156 was exquisitely finished in unique 1993 model year-only code L23I Metallic Wimbledon Green metallic paint. Inside, this 928 has a remarkably rare full Olive Green, to-sample, leather interior with supple, lumbar-supported and heated full position seats uniquely contrasted by red leather piping. It is believed that this is not only the sole North American Wimbledon Green 928 GTS but the only to sport this exquisite interior. The original owner, surely a lover of green, further optioned the 928 with code XK7, an exclusive color-matched green gear lever as well as a dealer-tequipment green leather luggage cover. In addition to the one-off color scheme and well-trimmed interior, the car was optioned with added air conditioning in the rear cabin, an AM/FM CD-2 stereo, a power sunroof, rim caps with painted crests, sport shocks and a manual transmission, one of only 54 for the year, in lieu of the traditional automatic.

This ultimate 928 would remain in its home state of Pennsylvania with it first 2 owners until 2009. Before leaving the Keystone state, the GTS would make one final visit to the selling dealer, Holbert Porsche, where it was treated to an extensive $8,000 mechanical service, replacing components including the ever-important timing belt. Having covered less than 53,000 from new and always being cared for by true enthusiasts, PS820156 is in incredible condition. Included with the GTS are its factory accompaniments: books, manuals, tools, and compressor, in addition to service receipts and a COA. When considering this car's ultra-desirable specification, likely one-of-one color combination and incredible condition, it becomes clear that this is one of the finest 928 GTSs to come to market and deserves serious consideration.
