1988 Porsche Type 959 Coupe / WP0ZZZ95ZJS900248 Chassis Information

1988 Porsche Type 959
Coupe
Chassis #: WP0ZZZ95ZJS900248
Sold for $1,012,480 (€896,000) at 2016 RM Sotheby's : Monaco.
Porsche built 339 examples of the Type 959, including 242 Komfort street models. Their exclusivity was established by their price tag which was in the neighborhood of $300,000 new. The actual per-cost was double, making the Type 959 a gift from Porsche to its loyal customers.

This example was delivered new to Germany on October 28th of 1988. It is one of just three originally finished in black and, it is believed, the sold black-on-black example produced. It currently shows 10,000 km on its odometer. It remained in Germany until 2013, when it was sold to a new owner in Monaco and then to the current owner, who exported it to the United States.

This Type 959 is a special model, having been upgraded to the factory-developed Stage II specification by the Porsche Classic Centre in Stuttgart. It has smaller and faster-spooling turbochargers, more efficient intercoolers, and a remapped ECU. The result of these improvements is a horsepower rating of 542.6 BHP, nearly 100 more than stock.

After minor damage to the front of the car, a front bumper was sourced from Porsche. The entire car was then repainted, ensuring perfect finish matching.

The car has a six-speed manual transaxle, all-wheel drive, and four-wheel ventilated and cross-drilled disc brakes with ABS.
