I own two 928s that are amongst the best in the UK. This is the story of how I reached this point – “928 Heaven” with a 1991 guards red 928 GT and a 1994 midnight blue 928 GTS with manual gear box. My 928s may not have the lowest mileages, but the bodywork is original, they are mechanically maintained to perfection and everything works. At the time of writing the GT has done 97,000 miles and the GTS 101,000 miles, but the service history is impeccable for both. The GT has 31 service stamps in the book and the GTS has 21, plus all the stamps for change of brake fluid, coolant and cam-belt – in total 29 stamps for the GT and 25 stamps for the GTS. I also have invoices in binders for all the work carried out (apart from the first two years for both cars). It is often said the best cars never reach the open market and are sold by word of mouth, which is how I came by both my 928s.
I first took an interest in 928s at the launch in 1977. The car really did look space-age compared to most cars of the era, and light years ahead of its time. I have always liked the front engine rear wheel drive coupe concept, so the scene was set!
