Readership votes GTS into the top bracket, in GT Purely Porsche "Greatest Porsche" Poll 2005

GT Purely Porsche, one of the two magazines in the UK dedicated to the Porsche marque, has completed a poll to find the greatest Porsche model. The 928GTS placed 3rd, which is a fabulous result, especially as it was only beaten by the 917 (Porsche's most famous race car), and the 2.7 Carrera RS.

Legendary Porsche driving instructor, who has taught some notable 928 drivers how to get the best from the V8 supercar, is quoted as describing the GTS as "Beautifully dignified, powerful. Deceptively agile."

" ... for some (911 owners probably) a surprise that [the 928GTS] finished in the top three, ..."
