Этот Porsche был использован Nissan для создания полноприводного Skyline GT-R: уникальный и модифицированный 959 выставлен на продажу


A carefully restored and improved example of the Porsche 959 is being put up for auction, with plans to fetch a record amount of about $3 million. This Porsche 959 is special for several reasons. Firstly, the car has undergone a thorough transformation as part of the “959 SC Reimagined” program by the British company, Lanzante Motorsport. The modifications include a 785-horsepower twin-turbo flat-six engine, a revised suspension, and a stripped-down interior.

But perhaps the most interesting aspect of this particular Porsche 959 is its history. It was used by Nissan to develop the all-wheel drive system for the iconic Skyline GT-R. Nissan purchased two 959s in the late 1980s to study and adapt their all-wheel drive technology for their sports car. One of these cars is now going up for sale, making it a unique piece of automotive history.

The auction is set to take place at the RM Sotheby’s Monterey event in August, where collectors and enthusiasts will have the opportunity to own a piece of automotive history. The estimated selling price of $3 million would make this Porsche 959 one of the most expensive cars ever sold at auction.

The Porsche 959 is already a highly sought-after and rare model, with only 337 units produced during its limited production run in the late 1980s. This particular example, with its unique history and extensive modifications, is likely to attract a lot of attention from collectors and enthusiasts alike.

With its combination of rarity, historical significance, and high-performance modifications, this Porsche 959 is expected to set a new record for the model at auction. Whether it will achieve the estimated $3 million price tag remains to be seen, but there is no doubt that this unique and special car will find a new home among collectors who appreciate its storied past and exceptional performance.
