Here is one of mine, which was featured in an Excellence magazine article.
Very smart looking. What factory shade/code of blue is that ?
^^ Wow, Blue '82. Certainly one of the best examples around.
My dad's 1994 GTS with 39K miles.
Color is Arrow blue; believed to be the only U.S. Spec arrow blue 928.
Thanks. Yes, at 3,600 original miles, it is quite pristine.
The GTS looks stunning as well.
Still imposing, and great road stance.
The car Bigfoot couldn't crush.
It's like an egg!
thanks ! That's a rare spec indeed. Got me thinking about a GT I just acquired, might look good in that shade
My mini collection all sold on. Now I have 3 new to me replacements. An 88 and 89 S4 and a 85 S.
and then it drove off into the distance !
found this interesting snippet from Cannonball book by Brock Yates. Didn't realise it was a Villeneuve behind the wheel..
The interesting part of the story is I'm an offshore powerboat racing fan and know Charlie McCarthy!
My 88 when I was bringing it home. Lousy pic. My Merc is behind. I think my 89 pictures are too big not uploading.
I raced in the inaugural Cannonball (finished 3rd) but not in a 928. They hadn't been produced yet. However, I've had at least 1 or 2 in the stable since they rolled off the assembly line. We imported this 1985 928S Euro 5M (330 hp and one of the most desirable 928s) and federalized it at our dealership. Of over 50 cars I've owned, it has been one of my all-time favorites. But alas, too many cars and not enough garage space, so my better half has decreed that it has to go. Send a PM if any interest.
Two of my ex's.
Fairly early '87 S4 (old enough to have the flip up spoiler).
The genius of the 928 starts with the rear suspension.
great post! ty
Arrow Blue is one special car! She is in great hands as well.
928s had the most pleasing interior in the business, and are still comfortable and stylish today.
Great to hear - a significant anecdote - thanks for sharing !
You're welcome! BTW, if I had access to a 928 back in October of 1971 (as Jacques did several years later), we would have left the Gurney/Yates Ferrari Daytona in the dust. Even in a crappy (albeit brand new) driveaway Caddy Sedan DeVille we passed the Daytona in New Mexico and led it into Arizona before they took a route that enabled them to get the Ferrari up to 175 mph. We could have equaled that speed with a 928 and perhaps drove into the history books.
Not to mention a 928 would've needed one fuel stop less than the Daytona
My 3 year custom project..sold her about 3 years ago.
Oh great. Another one of my former cars I should have never sold that I have to see on F-chat now. I'm sitting in the car in that picture you posted.
Mr Papa I'm assuming you got it from James in Austin, TX? He was a great caretaker. Finding and then waking this car up from over 2-plus decades of hibernation is one of my all time best life experiences.
Oh yah I saw it on Bring a Trailer last year. The commentary was pure comedy.

Without a doubt you have the finest 100% original 928 existing on planet Earth. When I hosed off the 1980's dust in 2008 basically a new car emerged.
Yes there was the Excellence 11/08 article which was fun. Also, a 928 club guy came and took a whole slew of pics at my bike shop once upon a time.
Kie's '82 928 OB 'Barn Find' - juanderer
I thought I saw your name on this forum. I had seen your name on old RL threads before I bought the car and know of your history with the car. I have to agree - it must be the best 928 on the planet, or at least as good as any other. I can't see how a car could get better. I bought it from James Morrison, the former 928 Owners Club president. Best car I ever purchased - dollar for dollar. Thanks for sharing your pics link.
Ready to head to paint, will never be as nice as the uber perfect low mile cars seen above but still exciting!
Nothing more exciting.
Equally as cool with its Minerva blue livery.
What are you doing over here?
Love the GTS
extra cool colour !
Darth Vader anyone??
More pics of my dad's '94 GTS.
I had the identical black GTS except it was a 93 and CDN spec. I just sold my 89 S4. Was into it for $9,800 CDN, my mechanic had a American looking for one. Offered $15,000 U.S. converted that's around $21k CDN, so couldn't say no.
my 1982 928 5sp in original Moss Green paint with tan int.
Moss Green looks wonderful on the early 928s. Great looking car!
Love this... Looks very modern with those wheels - fantastic!
May the Force be with You.
Tough looking car!
yes please !
1. Sleeping 2. Out shopping for a 996tt in September.
Very smart. Silver or slate grey ?
Found a refreshing article here:

smart looking GTS coming up at auction. Not sure about the bling rims though
1993 Porsche 928 GTS - Hollywood Wheels Auctions & Shows
^That one was actually originally owned by Hurley Haywood. Nice car.
You 928 folks have taken over the airwaves...wtf? Big props for recognizing and coveting these beasts.
Fine provenance !
Another one going up for auction at Amelia. This one is with Bonhams. Despite what the ad says, this is a 1995 GTS. One of 30 '95 5-speeds in North America. Low estimate for such a car. https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/23133/lot/150/
Sold for $132K. Someone got a beautiful car
Indeed. Not perfect, but a pretty nice example.
Here's my 90S4
