Coupe
The Porsche 959 is a supercar manufactured by Porsche AG from 1986 to 1989, first as a Group B rally car and later as a road going vehicle designed to satisfy FIA homologation regulations requiring that a minimum number of street legal units be built. It is widely regarded as Porsche's first true supercar.

During its short production run, 268 road legal versions were built. It was the world's first high-performance vehicle to use an all-wheel-drive system and it provided the basis for Porsche's first all-wheel drive Carrera 4 model. This vehicle convinced Porsche executives to make all-wheel-drive standard on all versions of the 911 turbo starting with the 933 variant. During its lifetime, the vehicle had only one street legal peer - the Ferrari F40.

In 2003, Canepa Design Corporation, famed for their high-quality SUV conversions, began using new hardware and modification techniques to modify 959s, making them more powerful as well as bringing their emissions levels into acceptable standards so they could become street legal under U.S. standards.
