The ultimate 928 was the GTS. This boasted a revised bodyshell with wider rear wheel arches to give a much muscular appearance. At the back was a full-width reflector between the lights, with the word Porsche across it
Under those haunches were new Cup Design wheels, which were now 17-inches in diameter and gave the 928 a more modern appearance, as did the new teardrop door mirrors.
However, the big news was the fact that the V8 engine had been increased in capacity to 5.4-litres, thanks to a longer stroke crankshaft, and powered was upped to 350bhp, and torque to 490Nm.
The power was fed through either an automatic or a manual gearbox, as before.
