Since it's been in my possession, I've taken what was a nicely preserved GT to a Concours condition example ready for preservation class at any Porsche sponsored event. Without question, this 928 is one of rarity and distinction sought out by collectors and enthusiasts of the breed and those with a preference for high performance Grand Tourismo driving.
No stories. No disappointments.
Jim Doerr and I have a bond tighter than if spit out from the same womb. so when I tell you that I know exactly what sort of chap he is, nothing is coated with the sweet stuff.
Jim, owner of 928 Classics, is deeply passionate about 928s...early 928s. I'm talking early; more specifically the first two years of their existence; 1978-1979.
so when he bought this GT, it was to fulfill a desire he'd developed long ago.
he told me over the phone when he purchased it; no doubt he was super excited about what sort of car he'd just bought; the thing is near mint. a few weeks would go by before I met him in person for the first time at Hershey; he'd brought the GT along.
he asked me what I thought.
I looked at him straight in the eyes and said, " this car ain't you."
he knew that long before I told him.
if you're interested in this beast, understand that, although time spent with Jim was short, you'd be getting a 928 in better condition than when he bought it. to say he's a fastidious perfectionist that demands 11 on a scale to 10 would fall a bit short, Jim is all about the details and this 928 will explain that better than I can.
the last two lines underscore what this GT is all about; no stories, no disappointments.
