Important automobiles to own, and even more satisfying to drive, good, well maintained Porsche 959s rarely become available on the open market. There is perhaps no more revolutionary automobile in the latter half of the twentieth century. It is also likely to appreciate as its rarity and landmark status are plain for all collectors to see.

Known History

Some 200 ‘Komfort’ spec 959s were built by Porsche and allocated to preferred clients throughout the world. The example offered here was ordered by the Duke of Guevara Fabbri living in Geneva and was invoiced to him directly by the Stuttgart works in May 1988. The factory invoice (for DM.420,330 inc. tax) records that the car was to German spec, with Grand Prix White coachwork, sports seats, alarm and leather trim. It was acquired shortly afterwards by the present owner, a wellknown Swiss enthusiast who has owned and raced a variety of high performance cars since the early 1950s. In his custody the 959 has been maintained to the very highest standard with major servicing entrusted exclusively to official Porsche agents. The car has never been crashed and use has been mostly confined to long distance trips with the occasional historic event included, such as the Tour du Maroc (for which a Rally Tripmaster timing device is fitted, the only deviation from standard). The total mileage covered now stands at 91,588km, the most recent service (by AMAG Porsche in Zurich) carried out just 200km ago, in October 2005 (CHF.20,000 invoice available for inspection).

The car comes with all handbooks and maintenance records (the service book is fully stamped) in their original wallet, plus all tools in their factory pouch (unused in appearance with even the wheel changing gloves still pristine), the original invoice and the most recent service bills. It is Swiss tax paid but not Swiss registered (959s were never officially homologated here so the car has always been driven on interchangeable collectors’ plates). The car is immaculate throughout and has no known faults.
