Classic Car Overview

<font size =4>Porsches first supercar Extremely well-preserved Completely mechanically refurbished by Canepa 2.85L Flat 6-Cylinder \ 450 H.P. 6-Speed Manual Transmission Twin KKK Turbochargers and Intercoolers This 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort emerges not just as a car, but as a thundering statement of power, speed, and technological wizardry. Equipped with twin-turbos this all-wheel-drive marvel was Porsches answer to the call for the fastest street-legal production car. With its aerodynamically sculpted body and a heart that beats with a twin-turbo flat-six engine, this 959 was the envy of every car on the road. This was Porsche flexing its muscles, showing off what it could do when it threw all rules out the window. Developed initially as a four-wheel-drive Group B contender, the 959 was the first to bring space-age complexity to the racetrack. Its body showcases an incredible synergy of aluminum and Aramid (Kevlar), lighter than a whisper but tough as nails. Its like Porsche took a page out of Formula Ones book, then wrote a whole new chapter with it. Underneath that sleek exterior roars a 2.85L powerhouse. This six-cylinder boxer engine, decked out with air cooled cylinders and water-cooled double-overhead-camshaft four-valve cylinder heads, was a marvel. Boasting 450bhp, this titan can blast past 195mph without breaking a sweat. But the 959 wasnt just about speed. It was a symphony of sophisticated technology and luxury. With a four-wheel-drive and six-speed transmission that could adapt to any condition and double wishbone suspension for a ride as smooth as silk, this car was a dream to handle. And lets not forget the comforts electric windows and mirrors, climate control, and seats that adjust just the way you like. The Porsche 959 is a highly sought-after and rare sports car that was difficult to acquire due to its limited production and high demand. The model was nicknamed Porsches gift to its favorite customers. The desirability of the Porsche 959 was so strong that even collectors in the United States, where the cars could not be legally imported, sought ways to obtain them through a grey market. However, the Show and Display Law 1998, supported by Porsche legend Bruce Canepa, eventually allowed for the legal importation of the 959. The 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort isnt just a collectors dream; its a beacon of automotive excellence. It stands as a testament to the era when Porsche dared to redefine what a supercar could be. And with only 292 of the 959 ever to be created its one of Porsches rarest. The previous owner had a substantial car collection and put in over $200k on the refurbishment of this car, which Canepa was honored to complete given our history and passion for excellence in this type of project specifically. He wanted this 959 to be in completely original and pristine, unrestored condition. In addition, he wanted to make sure it was mechanically and cosmetically like new, front to back. Every mechanical component was fully tested with the goal of having the car ready to enjoy for another 20+ years. Upon arrival at Canepa, every collector car for sale is put through an extensive and diligent process called the Canepa Difference. This includes a major and comprehensive mechanical inspection where all systems are checked, serviced, and restored as needed. They also receive award-winning concours-level detailing, including a thorough cleaning of each and every surface.
