1993 Porsche 928 GTS Coupe Paint to Sample/5-Speed Manual Featured in Famous Porsche TV Commercial Engine# 85P00609 (M28/49) Transmission# 3002382 (G28/57) 57,600 Original Miles (less than 2,000 miles since top-end engine rebuild) Zermatt Silver Metallic (Paint to Sample) on Classic Grey Leather with Magenta Carpet 5-Speed Manual Clean and Clear California Title PCA (Porsche Club of America) Member Owned No Accidents Mostly 2-Owners from New Certificate of Authenticity Clean AutoCheck Backgrou...nd Report By the time the GTS was launched, the 928 was ending its 17-year production run. As a result, the GTS cars benefited from all the previous development. These 928s were truly the best of the best. Unfortunately, only a mere 407 examples made it to the U.S. from 1993 to 1995. Of those, less than half were equipped with a manual gearbox. These 928s were made of aluminum including the engine. This 5.4L motor put out 345hp and 369 lb ft of torque. The GTS models were well equipped and expensive. This particular example had an MSRP of nearly $95,000 (approximately $153,000 in today’s dollars)! This first owner was a long-time executive for Coca Cola in Atlanta, GA. He custom ordered the car with specific options and colors, which included the following: Paint to sample metallic paint Supple leather seats Remote CD Changer Electric sliding sunroof Increased air conditioning Protective side moldings AM/FM radio w/cassette Black floor mats Carpet deviating color (Magenta) Yokohama tires Due to the special color combination, the order was delayed over a month. Then, the dealer installed the executive package, which included a mobile phone, Lojack, and K40 integrated radar detector. Nothing has been removed and the car remains as delivered new. These owners truly pampered this 928. No service was ever missed and it was always garaged. All of their services were performed by their local Porsche dealership. 10-years later, they retired to Arizona and brought the car with them. Shortly thereafter, they sold it to the current owner. He is a Southern California vintage car enthusiast who had been searching for a unique and pristine GTS for years. He bought this one in December of 2003 with almost 33,000 original miles. For the next decade and 20k+ miles, this owner did everything to make this one of the best 928 GTS examples in North America. Describing him as fanatical is putting it lightly. If anything made a strange sound or he didn’t think it was right, he would spend countless dollars correcting it. Some highlights of significant repairs/enhancements include: Top-end engine rebuild including heads and valves (over $8,000) Replaced synchros in gearbox (over $6,000) Custom header and complete exhaust system (over $10,000) Rebuilt torque tube Shark tuned chip (original chips included) New clutch, pressure plate, and resurfaced flywheel New H4 headlights Rebuilt original steering rack Repair A/C Timing belt and water pump (at 34k miles) New Michelin tires *Note: This GTS was recently fully inspected by Greg Brown (renowned 928 expert) and he said the car was perfect and really didn't need anything. The only possible thing it needed was the motor mounts that were still original and showing a slight amount of wear. So, the owner, being a perfectionist, had all new factory Porsche motor mounts installed and an oil service performed. The bill was over $2,000* Also, this 928 GTS was selected the official car of the 2009 Porsche Family Gathering event...see pic below from brochure advertisement. All in all, the current owner invested over $35,000 maintaining and improving this rare GTS. Greg Brown of Precision Motorwerks in Anaheim, CA (one of the top Porsche 928 specialists in the country) performed all of the work for the current owner. He used this car to develop a custom exhaust system that produced an additional 23hp and 12lb ft torque. See pictures for dyno results as well as this video of the run: Dyno Run Recently, this GTS was selected by Porsche to be included in their Panamera launch commercial/media called “Family Tree.” We have countless pictures from the event. The car is even included in the promotional poster produced by Porsche (included/see pics). Here is the TV commercial and behind the scenes: Family Tree Commercial The Making Of Family Tree Also, Porsche used this GTS as part of his interactive Family-Tree website experience as the representative for the 928 (see pics). Finally, this GTS was invited to participate at the prestigious 2016 Concours on the Avenue in Carmel, California during Pebble Beach car week. This was the first concours event it had ever been in. It scored an impressive 98 points and just missed first place by half of a point. As you can imagine, everything about this Porsche’s condition is remarkable. The exterior looks fantastic. There are very few signs of wear. The special ordered Zermatt silver paint looks more like the original Porsche silver of the 70’s. It has that very fine metallic look to it. The wheels are near perfect and are wearing near full tread Michelin tires. The underside is just as shiny and clean as the top (see pic with protective covers removed). The interior is equally as immaculate. The leather is soft with no tears and minimal signs of use. There are no stains or strange odors. The dash is perfect with no cracks or warping. Most of the interior is wrapped in leather (except for the dash). The carpet is plush and looks like new. All the gauges and buttons work properly. The original radio powers/lights up, but no display or sound. This just happened and not sure why it doesn’t work. The A/C system has been serviced and leak checked. Both front and rear systems operate as they should and blow at 42 degrees. Also, the clock works (very rare). We just had our local expert perform a fresh oil service as well as a cooling system flush. They commented that this was the nicest example of a 928 they had ever seen. Naturally, the best part about this 928 is the way it drives. It feels like new. It has tremendous power and shifts with ease. The suspension/handling is very crisp. This GTS needs nothing and is ready to be driven or shown. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Paul at 714-410-0223 or
