Here is a great opportunity to own one of the rarest and excellent example of the prestigious 1989 Porsche 928 GT. One of the rarest and most desirable 928's in the total years of Porsche's 928 flagship production. Well kept, up to date maintenance, of one of Porsche's most iconic models!
This 928 GT has been with me for the last 14 years about, the longest ownership. I think I am the 3rd or 4th owner according to records. Presently reside in Las Vegas area for the last couple of years. Prior to that, it's been a California car it's entire life. Always garaged and well kept maintenance records. Clean title & registration. Pink slip in hand. Clean CarFax record, no accidents or salvage. In the 14 years I've owned this car, I've put on only 25k miles, presently sits at 198k miles from 172k purchase reading. Runs strong and smooth. Never raced or rough driving.
The "works", maintenance & repairs done 6k miles ago, was done by Precision Motorwerks, Greg Brown's Porsche shop which was down the hill from my house in Calif. GB, if you don't know, is one of the most respected, and well known "928" minds out there.So rest assure, mechanically, it's sound. (more read below of all the works done - water pump, timing belt, GB teflon fuel lines, etc). Most recent repairs were done 1500 miles ago, locally (Carl's Place, Brent), new brakes, rotors, and master & slave cylinders, hydraulic lines, as well a service, fluids, oil, done on 10/2015. That work was done by another well experienced 928 tech there! I've spent about $20k in the last 4 years going through most everything, mechanically, keeping this running right. Have all receipts.
This GT is currently running on 18" Black Carrera IV's from a P997. It looks great and are my fav. *But what's great (from pics below) is that I still have the original "RARE" Chrome Club Sport wheels & tires, which are lightweight and rare, especially the 8" fronts. They will come with this car. Also included in this sale, I also have a set of Silver Carrera C3's 18" rims and tires, that I was planning on using as well. So you'll be well equipped with 3 beautiful sets of wheels for this rare GT!
There are also 2 factory car covers, one is a tan cloth, and a outdoor cover, in case, a silver nylon. There is also a X-Pipe included, that I got a deal on, but decided to keep this GT original. Spare tire, tool kit in place. 2 manuals, including a rare 928GT manual as well.
Everything original. Original paint and shines great! Interior is in very good condition, see pics. The center arm rest cup holder has been cleanly removed. The only thing I would've done in the future was possibly a new black paint job. Although it looks great, it does have some minor paint chips here and there in a few spots, and light scratches on passenger side. The other thing to mention, is the sunroof motor is getting weak, and will need to be replace if desired. All tires are avg.
Reason for selling: Need garage space and funds for another project.
This is a great performance, running car! Hate to list it but it's time to pass the torch. It's also a great investment considering it's one of Porsche's rarest 928's made, the 1989 928GT! The value on this car can only go up, common sense! One of the lightest weight of 928's out there, the short production (3 months), premiere year of the 928GT. Rumors has approx 50-75 '89 928GT's known. I am sure you will be proud to own and drive this classic!
Payments: Will only take wire transfer to my bank account, or cash. If cashier check, it "must" clear first before releasing this car and title. (sorry, fraudulent CChecks are rampant these days). No Paypal since there are expensive fees.

From web source:
In 1989, Porsche ups the ante again, this time delivering a 'serious sporting machine for the solvent'. The GT is a special version featuring a revised 5.0 liter 330HP V8, sport suspension and all new seven-spoke Club Sport rims (note 1), the rears the widest yet from Porsche measuring 16 x 9" wide. As such, the GT comes only with a manual trans. Visually imperceptible but an improvement functionally, the shiftrod is shortened 1" from the manual S4. New low-pressure tire warning system is standard.
From 959 technology, the 928 GT is fitted with an electronically controlled limited slip differential. The LSD has a progressively lockable multiplate clutch installed with the rear differential (note 2). A computer monitors wheelspin and clutches the affected wheel. Also new is a tire pressure warning system utilizing a pair of sensors integrated into each wheel. The wheels themselves made a change from the original Club Sport wheel in model year 1989 to the Design 90 style beginning in 1990. Price: $76,500
