Description

The ultimate 928 incarnation, the GTS was launched at Frankfurt Motor Show in 1991, boasting a 5.4-litre V8 engine producing 345bhp, bigger brakes, new bodywork and an automatic gearboxfitted withDynamic KickdownLast-year-of-production UK/right-hand drive GTS with full history with just fourownersGreat combination of Midnight Blue paintwork with Classic Grey leather interior97,000 miles covered. Fully restored just 5,000 miles ago by GCR Purely Porsche(c35,000)Major works included: a full engine and gearbox rebuild; all new springs, shock absorbers, wheel bearings, bushes; all suspension parts cleaned and powder coated; rear sub-frame dismantled, cleaned and powder coated; all new brake discs, with pads and callipers, overhauled and powder-coated; new brake lines and flex hoses, rebuilt power steering rack, plus much moreIn 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 Kickdowngearboxes 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 928 was released was the price; it was among the most expensive cars on the road at the time. This severely hampered sales despite the model's level ofcompetency and long standard equipment list. Porsche discontinued the GTS in 1995 after selling only 2,904 examples in total, which at the time was a problem, but in 2020 makes for a rare and incredibly desirable Porsche.The car presented here is a C16 (UK-supplied) 1995 Porsche 928 GTS automatic delivered new throughHR Owen Porsche of St Albans on the 8th June 1995, making it one of the last 928s registered in the UK. Superbly finished in Midnight Blue Metallic with Marble Grey/Midnight Blue interior, this impressive car has been enjoyed by just four owners who have diligently maintained a full service history.The history file tells us thatthe first owner, Mr Ronson,was Chairman and Founder of the Heron Motor Groupwith the car being used exclusively by himself and his wife. In December 2000, the car passed to a Heron employee, Mr Gregg, when the mileage was c30,000. He subsequently sold the car in October 2002, with c34,000 miles, to a Mr Turnball who kept it until September 2015, when our Porsche enthusiast vendor was the lucky buyer.He set about fully researching the history of the car and capturing it all in a large file and there is acomplete book-pack, including an original stamped-up service booklet and invoices for maintenance going back over the years. At just over 90,000 miles, our vendor commissioned a programme of works that saw the car fully restored by specialist Chris Sargeant of GCR Purely Porsche, Leicester. This work was completed just 5,000 miles ago, cost c35,000, and included a full engine and gearbox rebuild, all new springs, shock absorbers, wheel bearings and bushes, all suspension parts cleaned and powder coated, all new brake discs, pads and callipers, new brake lines and flex hoses and a power steering rack rebuild, plus much more besides. Where possible, original parts were re-conditioned to preserve originality and where necessary replacement Porsche Genuine Parts used to ensure performance and longevity. All this work is documented with invoices and photos, plus there is a Porsche COA, all original documentation and MOT Certificates.The car has since done very well in prestigious PCGB Concours events,a testament to having just a handful of diligent owners and the amazing work carried out on it recent times, making it one of most special 928 GTS examples currently available, at what is a tempting guide price.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 16thand 30thJuly.
