Porsche built only 226 of these supercars and their timeless design, state-of-the-art systems, and superior driving characteristics make them one of the greatest cars of all time. Canepa Design was instrumental in the passing of state and federal legislation that allowed these vehicles to be driven in the United States. With Porsche's blessing and collaboration, Canepa Design also continued to advance their performance and handling. Improvements include a new sequential engine management system, Garrett AiResearch twin turbos, a redesigned stainless exhaust system, an upgraded fuel system, and an improved wiring harnesses. The suspension was also upgraded including the installation of gas struts and titanium coil-over springs. In addition, the factory magnesium wheels have been modified to accommodate current-technology Michelin Pilot Sport 245-45-ZR17 front and 275-40 ZR17 rear low profile speed-rated tires. This Canepa Design 959 has only 7650 miles on the odometer and is in superb condition. It features one of the best 959 color combinations available: traditional German racing silver over a dark red and gray interior. The paint is flawless and the interior is as new. This is a rare opportunity to own one of the world's great supercars. Ideally suited to the kind of collector that enjoys driving, it combines the comfort of a world-class touring coupe with absolutely jaw-dropping performance. It has been fully detailed and is ready for show or high-speed touring.
