First presented to the world in 1986, the Porsche 959 was a technological marvel unlike the anything the world had ever seen before, immediately becoming the world’s fastest production car with a top speed of 317 km/h. The 959 was a world-beater born out of FIA homologation regulations for the group B rally that meant 200 road-going units of Porsche’s race car had to be made. While the then-mind-boggling 450 PS 2.8 litre twin-turbocharged flat six certainly delivered headlines that kept everyone between the ages of six and ninety lying awake at night, that wasn’t the only impressive aspect of Porsche’s 80s missile. An aluminium and kevlar composite body construction, and a revolutionary high-adjustable suspension were also integral to the 959’s otherworldly spec sheet.
In the end, just 292 Porsche 959s were made, so the fact that Schaltkulisse have not one, but two available is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. The first, Chassis 900039, was the fifth customer car to leave the factory. Built in 1987 as a Komfort version boasting the headline top speed, this 959 is finished in the classy combination of Silbermetallic (Silver metallic) over a Silbergrau (Silver grey) full leather interior. This is an incredibly well cared-for example, having covered just 13,200 kms since new. Additionally, this 959 is a German car and has only ever been registered once, in Germany, so if you’re looking for an investment-grade car, this is about as good as it gets.
The second car, is the Guards Red beauty you see here. Chassis 900155 was built in 1988 and is also a Komfort version. Originally built as a German car, this 959 was actually first delivered to Japan, before it joined the world-renown Ingram Porsche collection in North Carolina in 2003, where no expense was spared on this car’s maintenance. Recently PPF’d, this car has somehow covered even fewer kilometres, with just 7,350 on the odometer. If you want the most outrageous 80s themed two-car garage conceivable, then look no further.
