1991 928 GT

A new 12-month high for a nice GT

Introduced in 1989, the 928 GT was a sportier, better-equipped alternative to the 928 S4, exclusively available with a manual 5-speed transmission. With a power output of 330 hp and features like a more aggressive suspension and seven-spoke Club Sport wheels, the 928 GT offered a dynamic driving experience for serious Porschephiles.

This 1991 928 GT is a final year example finished in Gray on Black and shows just over 25,000 miles on the odometer. This highly original example was one of just 154 imported into the US for the year and comes with service records, including the replacement of the timing belt and water pump ~6k miles ago.

Looking through the limited photos in the gallery, this 928 GT appears to be in good condition inside and out. The Gray paint looks to have minimal wear as does the interior, more age related than anything. While seeing this one in person would help form a better opinion, it was one of the better photographed cars on Mecum’s site that I’ve seen.

The market for 928 GTs has been fairly flat over the last few years hovering around $50,000 with a range from the low $30’s for higher-mileage examples to around $100k for the best of the best. This GT sold at the top of that range at a final bid of $95,000, which was a new twelve month high thanks to its low mileage. Fair deal for a nice example of a rarer 928.

Two things that go hand-in-hand? Porsche and watches. Every Porschephile I know is also a watch nerd. And like Porsches, watches can be enjoyed at all price points. 

On a recent visit to Pittsburgh, SML subscriber Allan S. tossed me his new Sheffield Allsport watch. Sheffield Watches is a reboot of an old dive watch brand founded in New York in the ‘50s that was synonymous with producing low-price point, quality watches. The weight of the stainless steel case felt robust, as did the feel of the screw-down crown and unidirectional bezel—definitely quality. As for price point, the Sheffield diver punches way above its weight at $108. You can’t buy more watch for the money, period. 

And that’s what Sheffield Watches’ founder Jay Turkbas set out to accomplish, reviving the brand's ethos and creating a watch synonymous with quality, technology, and affordability. Taking inspiration from his original Sheffield watch from the ’70s and his 30-plus years of experience in product development and innovation, he knocked it out of the park with a durable watch capable of exploring the depths of the ocean one day and cars & coffee the next. And all at a price point equivalent to the $13 the watch originally cost back then. Take a moment to give Sheffield Watches a look. I know you’ll be just as impressed as I am.
