Best described as ”showroom ready”, this Porsche 959 looks like it just rolled off the production line.
Before trying to wrap your head around the capabilities of modern-day hypercars, you first have to appreciate the pioneering supercars that came before them. The Porsche 959 continues its legacy as one of the most influential sports cars amongst a community of collectors and enthusiasts, now commonly recognized as “the supercar ahead of its time.” Specializing in selling and restoring Porsche’s most esteemed model, the professionals at Canepa are pleased to present this immaculate 1988 Porsche 959 as part of its extensive inventory of rare and collectible cars.
This particular 1988 Porsche 959 comes in the highly desirable ‘Komfort’ trim, offering an array of luxurious features and options that were ahead of their time and remain relevant today. Extremely rare in the U.S., the 959 Komfort sports Porsche’s original silver metallic factory exterior finish coupled with a matching dark grey full leather interior. The additional upgraded options chosen at the time of production include electronically adjustable dark grey sports seats, an alarm system, and Bridgestone tires.
With an astonishingly low 5,202 miles on the odometer, this 959 is the perfect example of meticulous care and minimal use that car collectors and Porsche purists look for. It’s been lovingly maintained and sparingly driven over the years, maintaining its fresh-from-the-factory luster. Included in the purchase are 25 years’ worth of detailed maintenance receipts, along with numerous other documents, making it a unique time capsule and a golden opportunity for collectors. Adding to its history and completeness, the vehicle comes with an original owner’s manual, toolkit, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity that confirms both matching chassis and engine numbers.
The Porsche 959 boasts a groundbreaking twin-turbocharged 2.85L flat-six engine capable of producing an impressive 450 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque. This power is delivered through a highly innovative all-wheel-drive system, allowing the 959 to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just under 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 197 mph. Fit with its six-speed manual transmission, the 959’s performance figures were nothing short of revolutionary for its era.
