Supercar Fest Sale Of Iconic And Classic Cars Saturday 28th May 2022 24 Registration: M823 CCC Chassis No.: WP0ZZZ92ZSS800309 Estimate: £37,000 - £43,000 Lot 405 1995 Porsche 928 GTS A In terms of the 928, 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 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 928GTS 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 must have been financially uncomfortable for the company, but in 2022 makes these models exquisitely rare and very desirable. 928s finished in gleaming black with a black leather interior tend to have a slightly ‘menacing’ look and that is certainly the case with this impressive GTS. UK-supplied and first registered on the 26th June 1995, it was finished in Schwartz (741) with a matching black leather interior and benefitted from the latest, Dynamic Kickdown automatic gearbox. Offered to auction having covered just 60,553 miles which is supported by the maintenance history made up of main dealers and Porsche specialists. We understand that the car will be serviced by a noted specialist prior to its delivery to auction. Very few luxury GT cars from the 1990s have been so revered as the Porsche 928 GTS, and today it is rare to find a rival that is without the histrionics of contemporary exotica or the dullness of a mass- produced luxury saloon-derived coupé. It’s presented to auction with a well stamped service book, and handbooks enclosed in its wallet, historic MOTs and freshly serviced ready for the car’s next adventure.
