Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1991, the latter boasted a 5.4-litre engine producing all of 345bhp and automatics were fitted with the much faster-responding Dynamic Kickdown gearboxes setting them apart from the previous models. Externally, the GTS differed from the S4 with its new style of alloy wheels, flared rear arches and a body-coloured rear spoiler. What Porsche was not advertising when the 928 GTS was released was the price, which was amongst the most expensive cars on the road at the time. This severely hampered sales despite the model’s level of competency and long standard equipment list. Porsche discontinued the GTS in 1995 after selling only 2,904 examples in total, which at the time was a problem, but in 2023 makes for a rare and incredibly desirable model. This lovely Porsche 928 GTS automatic, finished in Polar Silver with a Midnight Blue Leatherette interior, is certainly one of the best that we have seen of these immensely capable Grand Tourers. Supplied new by Lancaster Porsche Cambridge, it has only had two owners prior to our vendor and has covered just 40,639 miles. It’s supplied with a service book boasting nearly 20 stamps from either Porsche Main Dealers and latterly a Porsche specialist. The most recent full service included front brakes and the invoice amounted to a substantial £7,148.10. The MOTs go back to 2006 with the odometer reading 30,746 miles at that point. This stunning GTS has led a coveted life which is reflected in its remarkably fresh appearance. Very few Grand Tourers match the timeless looks and the quality that Porsche obviously put into building these long-legged, front-engined GTs. Last-year-of-production UK-supplied right-hand drive GTS with a full history and low-ownership. More Details Lot 717 Bid On Lot 717
