Porsche 959 for sale

With this super sports car derived from the 911, Porsche presented a street racer in 1985 like the world had never seen before. In the mid-eighties newcomers were not necessarily the classic target group for the 420,000 Deutschmark and therefore astronomically expensive super car. In comparison, the most expensive Mercedes back then, an S-Class, cost about a quarter of that price. The price did not deter the elite. The Porsche 959 was sold out within a few weeks. . Anybody who considered himself somebody at this time and wanted to show it had to have a 959, by hook or by crook. Shortly after the model’s entry into the market, individual cars sold for up to 700,000 Deutschmarks.
