This is the Porsche 959. A car that is considered the unicorn that no Porsche enthusiast can resist, and the meanest 911 ever.
Conceived and built as a world rally championship group B race, this masterpiece of 1980’s technology was teased by the 1983 Porsche Gruppe B concept car shown that year in the Frankfurt Auto Show. Not withstanding the use of the existing 911 platform and basic body, the concept was equipped with technologies that more than 33 years ago was regarded as automotive science fiction.
Things like adjustable height and variable all-wheel drive controlled by a computer.
Powered by a 2.8 liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that could generate 444 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
Power was delivered to all four wheels through a special manual transmission with five forward speeds plus an extra all terrain gear and of course, a reverse gear.
With an official top speed of 197 miles per hour (317 Km/h) the Porsche 959 was the fastest street legal car in the world when it arrived, excluding the US.
Just 294 street legal 959s were produced, and all of them sell for huge dollars.
As it turns out, there was one for sale on Dupont Registry awhile back for $1.3 million dollars with only 3,500 miles on the odometer.
Instead of buying it for $1.3 million dollars, you can for a limited time own this beautifully
illustrated print for next to nothing by comparison.
