1993 Ford Probe GT Sells For $18K At Auction

In recent months, we’ve seen select models from the 1990s and 2000s begin selling for shockingly large amounts of money at collector car auctions. These aren’t what one might typically consider “collector” cars in the traditional sense, however, but models like a 2005 Mercury Sable wagon that hammered for a surprisingly large sum of $15k recently. This isn’t true of all vehicles of this vintage – just take this 2004 Ford Taurus that sold for pennies on the dollar – but it happened yet again with this 1993 Ford Probe GT that recently crossed the block at at Bring a Trailer.

When the dust settled and the hammer fell on this 1993 Ford Probe GT auction, the sporty coupe sold for an eye-opening $18,000. Granted, it has a mere 7k miles showing on the odometer, and shows no discernible flaws, but the Probe – in general – is not something that most would consider to be a collectible model, let alone something that’s worth this kind of money. Regardless, it’s clear that at least one person – and perhaps more – did feel that way.

In all fairness, this might be the nicest 1993 Ford Probe GT on earth, as it features zero noted flaws on the outside, and the sporty coupe is finished in Vibrant White paint with 16-inch alloy wheels and Goodyear Eagle VR50 tires, underpinned by a sport-tuned suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. The interior is equally pristine, with no visible flaws marring its front bucket seats that are finished in red cloth with gray patterned inserts, along with amenities such as a power-operated sunroof, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a cassette stereo, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, and a tilt steering column.

Power for this Ford Probe GT comes from the Mazda-sourced 2.5L V6, which contains some interesting features such as an aluminum block, port fuel injection, and dual overhead camshafts, good for factory ratings of 164 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. In this case, that power flows to the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. While we’ve seen some nice Probes surface for sale as of late, this one might just be the most notable, overall – and its hammer price certainly reflects that fact, too.

    I could have been a bidder, but not on an automatic transmission model. The manual tranny is maximum fun.

    Had a probe, biggest piece of crap i have ever owned. Was so glad to get rid of it.


    As a Ford dealership mechanic I can honestly say they were half baked when the second generation came out. Lots of body, sealing and electrical issues. There was an issue with the valves sticking. You had to replace both cylinder heads, no small task. Oh and no help from Mazda either. Good luck with it !

    I had a ’93 Probe GT, it was a very sporty ride. The motor was smooth and sounded exotic, and the handling excellent. my issue was how small it was in terms of ingress, and egress, hard to not hit your head on the roof. On the the other hand, the earlier Probe had a roomier interior with better made materials. I had a ’90 LX with the 3.0 Taurus V6 and 5 speed. While it was softer, the engine was every bit as nice if not sound vs the exotic little 2.5 Mazda V6.
