Readership votes GTS third, in GT Purely Porsche "Greatest Porsche" Poll 2005
GT Purely Porsche, a magazine in the UK dedicated to the Porsche marque, completed a poll to find the greatest Porsche model in 2005. The 928GTS placed 3rd, which is a fabulous result, especially as it was only beaten by the 917 (Porsche's most famous race car), and the 2.7 Carrera RS (Porsches most desirable 911). That must rank the 928 GTS as the greatest all round Porsche car that you can actually use as your car, as you can't really place the 917 and 2.7 RS in that bracket.
A legendary Porsche driving instructor, who has taught some notable 928 drivers how to get the best from the V8 supercar, is quoted as describing the GTS as "Beautifully dignified, powerful. Deceptively agile."
No. 1 - Porsche 917
Porsche 917 023 was the Le Mans winner in 1970.
No. 2 - Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7
The Carrera RS models from 1973 and 1974 are considered by many to be the greatest classic 911s of all-time.
" ... for some (911 owners probably) a surprise that [the 928GTS] finished in the top three, ..."
