The final iteration of Porsche’s 928 model range, the GTS was introduced in 1992 and offered a 5.4-liter V-8, which produced 345 bhp, in addition to larger front brakes and updated bodywork. The 928 was among the most expensive new cars available when it hit the market for the 1993 model year in the U.S., and production only lasted until 1995 when the 928 was finally discontinued.
Delivered to its first owner through Champion Porsche in Pompano Beach, Florida, in June 1995, this 928 GTS exists as an interesting subset of 928 production. Only 406 928 GTS models were sold new to the U.S. and of those, just 77 were built for the 1995 model year. Furthermore, only 47, including the example offered here, were equipped with an automatic transmission. Finished in Black with a grey leather interior, it remained in Florida until 2000 before moving north to Pennsylvania in 2002. The car then made its way to New York until it was purchased by the current owner and exported to Switzerland in 2016.
Built for the final and rarest year of production, low-mileage 928 GTS models are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and gently used examples remain sought after by collectors as they represent the end of the series and highest performance offered on the 928 platform. As such, this example is not to be overlooked.
