SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A formidable and highly coveted Porsche 928 GTS with just 46,238 miles.

MODEL HISTORY
Produced from 1978 to 1995, the Porsche 928 was initially developed as a replacement for the quirky and sometimes difficult to drive 911. However, the characteristics of this V8 Gran Turismo, Porsche’s first production V8 model, were somewhat different to the 911 and direct replacement did not come to fruition. Porsche’s design and development efforts paid off during the 1978 European Car of the Year, where the 928 won ahead of the BMW 7-Series and the Ford Granada. The final and arguably the most coveted 928 models was the GTS as presented here.

The sculptured, anatomically correct seats are trimmed in the original hand-stitched draped leather in light grey, (Code GZ). The upholstery is spotlessly clean and in excellent order with no undue wear or crazing to the hide. The matching colour scheme carpets have been protected from new by expensive Porsche tailored over mats. The fibre optic instrument panel has all elements working perfectly with just some light crazing to the instrument backing. The rear seats fold completely flat to create a spacious luggage area and the pristine boot space housing the original space saver spare wheel with Vredstein tyre and factory jack in the original sheath. Factory build stickers to the driver’s door shut and the factory options code sticker to the boot floor remain, essential for originality seekers. The ultimate GT interior, built to cruise the Riviera!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The powerful heart of the 928GTS is a 5.4 litre, V8 engine. This quad-cam 32v alloy engine produces 350bhp at 5700rpm and maximum torque 500Nm at just 4250rpm. An intoxicating engine soundtrack invokes you as you achieve 0-60mph in just 5.7 seconds and a possible top speed of 170mph, as quoted in the original Porsche marketing literature. Porsche originality aficionados will delight at the clean engine bay displaying all factory plates, stickers and even the original Shell Fuel and Lubrication sticker! Effortless cruising is offered by the 4-speed automatic transmission which operates perfectly with Porsche Dynamic kickdown.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Filling the spotless wheel apertures are optional 18in Carrera alloys wheels with factory optional coloured Porsche crest centre caps, all in pristine condition.  Premium quality Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tyres have masses of tread and the unused space saver spare wheel is housed in the immaculate front luggage area complete with the original Mobil 1 spare oil zip-bag and official Porsche screen wash.   The lightweight jack, tools and brace are all present.  The 4-piston patented monobloc fixed callipers in original black proudly and clearly display the Porsche inscription and grip tightly to the vented cross-drilled discs.

Registered new on the 28th April 1990 by Official Porsche Centre, Heddell & Deeks in Dorset, this vehicle has a fully traceable ownership record. Detailed notes on each owner make interesting reading with the first, Mr Duncan, buying the car for his wife who only covered 650 miles in two years due to a skiing accident and preferring her automatic Mercedes. Long-term and penultimate sixth owner of 15 years, Mr Robert Gall, bought the car in 1999 from Porsche Dealers, Paragon. The vehicle invoice reveals a purchase price of £32,995 when the car had covered 44,013 miles. Used regularly by him with 11 service entries documented until 2003 and 53,755 when business commitments put the car into careful storage. In 2014 Mr Gall entrusted Porsche Specialists, AMB of Nottingham, to completely go through the car with the intention of putting it back into recreational weekend use. The bill for this work amounts to £6,158.83 replacing all fluids, brakes, belts, tyres and service items broken down on an itemised bill. With only 54,962 miles now covered rather than extended storage and minimal use the decision was made to sell the car.
