"Early" 1993 Porsche 928 GTS: Very Significant And Rare, 1 Of Only 54 Manual Units Produced For The 1993 Model Year - Only 406 GTS Models Were Brought To The U.S. - Meticulously Maintained, With No Expense Spared - Finished In Black Over Classic Grey - Displays Only 18,XXX Low Miles From New - Clean CarFax Report - Comes With Its Original Books And Manuals
Presenting the rare opportunity to take ownership of an exceptional and minimally driven example of the most lauded and significant of all 928s, the coveted GTS trim specified with the highly scarce and exceedingly sought-after 5-speed manual transmission! Built in March of 1992 at Porsche's assembly facility in Stuttgart, this "early" 1993 U.S model ( as 1992 928s were not formally introduced to the U.S market, the "early' and "late" moniker as positioned in front of the 1993 model year units relate to the release timings of 1993 928s) is the absolute ideal 928 GTS for the most discerning collector as it's representative of how a well-sorted and "no-stories" specimen should present itself!
It was driven and remained underneath the care of its first owner from late June of 1992, until a certain time in 1997 when it was then stored. The GTS remained stored until its second owner acquired it in February of 2011. During the 2nd owner's time with the GTS, which resulted in a span of 8 years, less than 2,000 miles were placed on the coupe. On the 2nd of February, 2020, Its third owner took ownership of it and has since only placed less than 100 miles on the car.
This fastidiously maintained and turn-key example benefits from a July 2019 servicing that consisted of an oil, coolant, water pump, along with a timing belt change. Within the last 200 miles, it received new tires, lug nuts, wheel caps, wiper blades, and exhaust tips; had its brake hoses, rotors, and pads replaced; a caliper refinishing; while also having had its transmission and brake fluid flushed. All parts that were replaced, can be readily sourced from the 3rd owner.
The GTS is an absolute legend reigning as the definitive analog Gran Tourer from Porsche, merging 911 dynamism with splendor, gentility, immensely low availability, and utility! Debuting in 1992 with production concluding in 1995, the world was only granted access to 2,887 spectacular examples; out of those, the U.S would only witness 406 examples landing on its shores. Displayed in an illustrious shade of black with an interior completed in Classic Grey, this specimen would go on to be 1 of 190 examples and 1 of only 54 manual-equipped units produced for the "early" 1993 model year designation and represents the first year of the U.S bound GTS.
The GTS stands as the pinnacle in the 928 range as it serves as a host to a plethora of Porsche's perfections, offered in the ultimate configuration! You're met with a powerful, 5.4-liter V8 engine that's situated up front (also are its signature "pop-up" headlights), with its sonorous roar emitting from its rear dual-exhaust outlets, surrounded by a timeless body that's achingly poised and classy; where the rear fenders and tires ever so subtlety protrude outwards, thus creating a muscular, visual drama; a rear spoiler that further draws one's attention to its sloping roofline, while its iconic reflector strip adds to the dramatic, yet fluid design language by aiding in accentuating the wider rear fenders with the 17-inch Cup 1 wheels harmoniously completing the exterior. Performance attributes are comprised of an engine that when new, relayed a staggering 345-hp and 369-lbs-ft of torque to the rear wheels; front brake calipers that are derived from the 911 Turbo from the GTS's period; a weight distribution of 50/50 with a relatively low weight of 3,300 pounds; the Weissach axle rear-steering setup; and handling that's well collected with a steering feel that's road connecting!
As you step inside the Classic Grey finished cabin and close the door, you're not only greeted by the solid "thunk" that emits from the closing of the door, assuring one of the car's solidity but also by the embracing and heated power-adjustable front sport seats that are encapsulated by a cabin that features a streamlined and driver-centric layout, with the driver being welcomed by a 4-spoke steering wheel, 3-floor pedals, and the emotional stirring, 5-speed manual gearbox. The cabin also features a sunroof and a CD-2, CD player.
