Porsche's intended replacement for the 911 may not have achieved that particular goal, but it wasn't for a lack of performance or technological wizardry. An alloy V8 was attached to a rear-mounted gearbox, and the galvanised body had aluminium doors and bonnet, between body-coloured plastic bumpers - pretty radical for the period. The 928 was launched to a fanfare and surprised many by being named European Car of the Year, an award that traditionally went to worthy, but dull, family hatchbacks.

Critics immediately recognised the advances inherent in the 928 over the 911, and the car was universally praised as one of the greatest 'GT' cars of all time. It handled, it was quick, it looked fantastic and it was comfortable. With the 928, Porsche created a serious long distance grand-touring car that could also tackle twisting B-roads with ease, thanks to super-direct steering, 50/50 weight distribution and a clever Weissach rear axle that kept the car firmly planted. Many road testers found that their nerve ran out long before the 928's grip. Porsche continuously developed their range-topper throughout its production life, culminating with the launch of the S4 in 1987, which differed slightly from the earlier Series cars with its smoothed-off front and rear bumpers, larger rear spoiler, more interior equipment and a 5-litre version of the V8 engine developing 316bhp.

1989 saw further development in the story of Porsche's 928 with the launch of the GT featuring a more powerful 5.0-litre V8 producing a creamy 326bhp, but more importantly, the introduction of a 5-speed manual gearbox for those who loved the level of control offered by a clutch and gear lever. The GT also sported twin exhausts, uprated camshafts, and sports suspension - the ultimate 928 had arrived!

This fabulous, right-hand drive, UK-spec, 928GT was supplied new by Malaya Garage (Porsche) on October the 12th 1989 (1990 model year) in Forest Green Metallic (L22E) which, at the time, was only available to special order. It was further specified with a limited-slip differential, sports chassis, and the GT-spec 16” Club Sport forged alloys. Future occupants were to benefit from cream leather sports seats, a sunroof, air conditioning, and the top of the range Blaupunkt Toronto SQR 46 Cassette-radio.

This lovely car has been enjoyed by five recorded keepers and the odometer currently indicates 37,050 miles. The most recent keeper purchased the car from the, notably particular, Paul Stevens Porsche in 2012 and it has only covered 5,000 miles since. The service record appears excellent and the car benefits from a major service by marque specialists, Williams Crawford, in August 2019 including replacing the cam belt, water pump, belt tensioner/rollers, and a fresh MOT (August 2020). The toolkit is present as are the complement of handbooks, 928 GT supplementary manual, the original service maintenance book, the maintenance record folder, and a spare key.

The 928GT is a rare car and this superb example, with its low mileage and sophisticated colour combination, is bound to attract considerable interest.

A superb example of the rare, manual gearbox, GT with only 37,050 miles
