A lot of big ticket items on Ebay do not sell but it is great advertising. His prices are high but his cars are also unbelievable. If I had the money that 87 5 speed with 29K miles would not still be for sale.

Just seems like a silly waste of time to me, but there you go.

As to your pics question......no.

I would have though those list members had better things to do with their time.....obviously not. I don't see the big deal......it's just a cheap old Porsche, like pretty much all 928's.

I think certain people have far too much time on their hands.
Did we miss your introduction thread with details about your car? Very odd, I though for sure I would have seen that.

As to Wilhoits cars, he gets top dollar because they are worth top dollar. Since you are pretty new around here, you might want to utilize the search function.

The only question I have is why is this red GTS priced higher than the sunroof delete car? The sunroof delete car has fewer miles and is....well, a sunroof delete car.

^^^^ Maybe its a lot more nicer?

Its true that low mileage 928 GTS cars have been selling for a little over $100, 000. But this all has to do with mileage, once they go up on miles like the ones you have mentioned for sale in UK, their prices drop significantly.
The car is simply selling for close to its MSRP value when new, the original owner didn't put enough miles on the car. Same as if you were to go buy a 2009 R8 with hardly any miles on it, asking prices are very close to MSRP value. If you have seen any low mileage GTS sell for a lot less than what Mike is selling his for, its because the owner simply had no idea they could still get close to the purchase price for their old low mileage car. For example a 93 GTS 5-speed with less than 20K miles sold for $34,000 last year, within 20 minutes of showing up on ebay. The original owner simply did not know... But if you had a 993 turbo with hardly any miles on it, I bet the owner can get well over the original purchase price, because its the more popular known Porsche brand the 911...

And for those (possibly getting slightly upset) asking for car pictures and introduction thread... leave him alone, ignore him. I am sure you have something better to do than getting a little worked up on something like this.

What's a lot? Paying Michael 105K or North of 150K to have yours rebuild by Porsche Classic and yes they do 928 as well (see time 3:54 in the clip) if you decided to hang around on this forum you may learn some thing.


Best wishes for your own project

Low mile GTS cars will fetch very high $$$$ - IRRC Michael has sold 4 or 5 for over $100k - in my honest opinion worth every dam cent.

I would have though those list members had better things to do with their time.....obviously not. I don't see the big deal......it's just a cheap old Porsche, like pretty much all 928's.
Are you on the wrong forum!!!!!! Did you not get thrown of "Landsharks" for comments like this. Not welcome here either - do you actually own one?

Not really, if ya come in acting like a douche, don't be surprised if someone calls you out about it.

The sunroof delete (had a chance to see it in person on MW's floor) was a fantastic example. The cars Michael finds are exemplary, as is the 911 that I purchased from him.

It's going to be fun watching this meltdown. It's been awhile since we had one of these fish

I would thank you to retract that comment "ROG100".

I suggest you and Sean look to posters like Herman to see an example of constructive criticism.

Needless to say, I will not be purchasing anything from 928srus, ever.

Have a nice day.

Hmmm... trolls are quite common in the photography forum I also frequent, but they're pretty rare here. Best thing to do is ignore them; leaves more room for constructive 928 discussions.

If you have an issue with a post, there is a little red triangle in the lower left corner that allows you to report that post to the moderators.


On that note.....referring to those who own the premier examples 928's as having too much time on their hands, and referencing our beloved rides as: "cheap old Porsche" isn't going to bring out the welcoming committee.

Yes you are 100% entitled to your opinion, just don't be surprised when others don't agree and share theirs, ok?

James, according to the 928 Registry the first 10 to 15 of the MY 94 GTSs came with wheels known as "C2 Turbo." After that they came with "Cup" wheels which I think we also call "Cup I." That suggests that it likely has the original wheels.

Dave, a look at the 928 Registry regarding the VIN says that this is actually a 94.

A look at the pictures in the eBay listing shows that the hood and headlight gaps are a little off. I wonder what that means.

Hacker.

I agree completely.....

I hope you notice that I don't go around personally insulting people on here by calling them names if they have the temerity to not agree 100% with me.

Also, I didn't say anyone who owned a nice 928 "had too much time on their hands", I was referring to that "other" list that has been mentioned here (not by me I might add) at least twice.

To set the record straight...it was a list I was part of, until I chose to leave as I didn't fit in well with their geriatric mindset.

So I cancelled my membership and deleted myself and apparently it's now grown to "Ohhh....you can't leave, you're fired!" in my absence.

On an interesting side note I received quite a few "well done" emails from other list members the day after.....but that's another story entirely.

I notice with interest that a few members of that other list have been viewing my profile repeatedly.....it's creepy, stalking type behaviour.

I'd thank them to keep themselves to themselves and we'll all get along just fine.
