This car is in auction on The Market website. The auction is LIVE now and finishes on 17th September. Price is a lower estimate.
All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.
Coming in a particularly strong colour combination of Cobalt Blue with off-white leather seats, this car is in very good condition inside, outside and underneath. It drives well, pulls strongly and is impressively quick.
While many parts have been replaced or refurbished, nothing is modified, or altered or otherwise ‘not right’.
It has covered only few hundred miles in the last 3 or so years but it has had significant money spent on parts and maintenance during that time and, while it’s ready for a service (based on time rather than mileage), it is on the button, ready to go.
The vendor tells us that the reason for the low mileage over the last few years is that the previous owner (a fastidious Civil Engineer) had two 928 GTSs (this one and a red one) and divided his time between the two of them and a few other cars in his possession. Ah, yes, the old Too Many Cars, Not Enough Time problem.
But it was his predecessor, a gentleman from Scotland, who put in the really hard yards, and the history testifies that he has thoroughly emptied his pockets so you don’t have to – more of that later.
Virtually everything that needed doing to it – including some big ticket items – appears to have been done within the last 5 or 6 years.
Importantly, and this will be very welcome news to anyone who knows their way around a 928, all the electrics – including the seats – work just as the Meister Elektrikers of Stuttgart intended. That’s unusual for a 928 and a great indicator of any 928’s overall condition.
The panel fit remains true and the shut lines are clean and even. The doors, boot and bonnet close with the machined, metallic crispness that will be familiar to Porsche owners everywhere.
It has no rust of any note that we can see and is remarkably free of stone chips, scuffs, dinks or any other unwanted blemishes. All appropriate bodywork cavities have been waxed.
The paintwork shows no variance in paint hue or tone across surfaces, and the lustre is impressive.
This is due in no small part to the fact that the car was stripped down in 2015 at which time any dents or dinks were removed and the entire car was repainted in its original Cobalt Blue and lacquered. This came at a cost of £5,000.
The door seals have been replaced, as has the aerial. The mirrors, lights, indicators and wipers all do what they’re told to do.
The car sports matching Continental tyres with plenty of tread on original, apparently unmarked wheels.
Just about the only significant point we can report is that the rear spoiler is loose and will need attention. The history shows that it was last adjusted to rectify some looseness in 1992. So, the bad news is that you may well have to look at this again in another 28 years’ time. We know, what a pain….
