1993 Porsche 928 GTSRemarkable piece of Porsche history from the great city of Vancouver. Original Porsche Vancouver/MCL car. Less than 30 sold in Canada. Two owner with impeccable history & local provenance. Fully original paint with rare black metallic. This is a super durable & mirror smooth clear coat over gold metal-flake base. The paintwork from this era or Porsche is spectacular, ut not so environmentally friendly.
Original engine and all other major parts. Even the windscreen is original. Carproof provided, ncluding detailed insurance claim history.No accidents or other major work.First owner history shows a claim for content theft (probably Bill's phone) with passenger side window replaced and one fog-lamp in the 20+ year history of ownership.
Summer driven only, arage kept - just to keep the interior and paint out of the weather. This is the automatic transmission version.
Service records of course, ith recent cam belt and pump service @ 100K miles. All fluids/filters done. Electrics/electronics/systems work as they should. Recent brake pad change. Past service includes expected maintenance such as bulbs, otors, park plugs, ngine mounts (OEM), teering rack and rebuilt original rack is included with sale. Torque tube was replaced at ~60K miles by 1st owner.
Engine has not been taken apart other than for Cam belt service & front seals. (ie it has the original oil pan gasket, ntake etc). Cool weather up in B.C. so rubber, oses stay in good condition. Pure unchlorinated water keeps the cooling system very clean, educing corrosion with no particulates. R 134a A/C works great never been touched as well.
Stock original interior with stock Porsche CD-2 Audio/amp. Comes with 18" Porsche turbo hollow-spokes wheels as well as original 17" Porsche Cup wheels. Tire pressure monitoring works great with the original wheels. Has sport rear (red) shocks for more responsive handling. Original rears are included.
Sure to appreciate further due to high quality build, xceptionalcollect-abilityand rarity.
General InformationA word about the GTS series: I drove this GTS for a week with an "in-law" member of the Porsche family when he was visiting Vancouver on business. Back in Europe, e had been given a prototype GTS by Hans Michel Piech to drive for about a year, ne that was used for in-field testing. Which leads me to the engine changes made on the GTS. Porsche altered the piston design and breathing on the 92-95 engine. An undesirable result of that was some production GTS's were consuming lots of oil, nd some engines were replaced under warranty. So when buying a GTS, sk about its oil consumption. This particular one is good. Another GTS quirk is you have to run the highest octane fuel to prevent pinging, sp in the summer using Chevron 94. Of course with all 928's the torque tube history is good to know, s excess load may be placed on the engine thrust bearing if the flex plate connection has slipped out. I have regularly checked this driveshaft for creep and there is none. Also driving habits (no rapid starts etc.) will prevent the driveshaft from winding up and pulling back on the flex plate connection.
About mileage. Porsche 928's are not Chevy Cobalts. They can easily handle 5-10K a year of highway driving, n fact it is preferred. Regular operation keeps new fuel moving through the fuel supply system, il fed throughout the engine lubrication system, oolant & brake fluid circulating, ransmission seals lubricated, /C system lubricated, eat in the car reducing humidity/stagnation and electrical contacts operating preventing corrosion. I personally don't think that low miles is a good thing, nd I've seen low-miles basket cases we've had to part out. Put it this way, ou could easily take the $50K savings and apply it to maintenance for the next 20 years! Same car whether it's got 10K miles or 100K. Note: Engine air tubes are removed for photos. Engine undertrays were removed for fluid changes and I've left them off for buyer inspection before final sale. More interior photos to come (too low light indoors/due to rain).
