    959 in Paris

    About a week ago I stopped by my Porsche dealer in Paris and I bumped into this very unique 959 ....

    The color is may be not the most stylish in my view ...

    There was also a brand new orange GT3 RS ...

    Re: 959 in Paris

    2nd pic.

    Re: 959 in Paris


    This 959 has something very special .... that I have never seen in the past ....and guess what it is?

    Hint: If you pay attention to details on one of the 2 pics, you'll see it.

    Re: 959 in Paris

    Can I commit an arch heresy?

    I'm sorry, this illustrious car from the past just doesn't do it for me. Maybe my palette just isn't refined enough to appreciate it.

    I know its performance was legendary for its time, but on looks alone, this car just doesn't do anything for me. The colour only adds to the cold feeling I have.

    I love this car! Give me one in Artic Silver anyday of the week

    Re: 959 in Paris

    This car belongs to my neighbour, Altani, Emir of qatar.
    You can see the arms of his country on the wheel caps.
    Some other of his Porsches bear the hand of Fatima instead of the Porsche logo on the front hood.
    Not the most opened neighbour I must say.
    For info, his latest acquisition is the new SLR 722, green exterior with yellow leather interior.
    There is regularly the most monstruous Cayenne I've even seen parked outside his place in the summer.

    Great neighbour you have there

    I saw various times a pearl white 959 cabriolet with chrome wheels, in Mallorca(Balearic Islands), I think he still drives the car there.

    I think there where no 959cabriolets, this one was done by the owner after purchasing it. The owner was a retired Boxer, very big man, and of colour.

    I remembered it had a "fat" sound,

    He also has an Escalade in black colour with 20 something inches

    Both cars with plates of the UK.

    For sure the 959 is a master piece, but I would like to know who of you would choose between the 997GT3RS and THAT 959 with that colour.

    Re: 959 in Paris

    Ha, I saw it! (The details on the centercaps I mean)
    I thought this car was also mentioned on porsches website once, when they first started showing wallpapers of the exclusive department.

    Depends on what your desire is. If you want the latest greatest car you'd chose the GT3 RS. If you wanted a piece of Porsche history that will always be worth more money and pride then you'd take the 959. Those stripes and color though

    Exactly! I couldn't have said it better myself. Give me a 997 GT3 anyday...

    Re: 959 in Paris




    Re: 959 in Paris

    Mouse is that the same car? That's one of my favorite wallpapers.

    I'm sorry but I'll pick the 959 over TWO 997GTRS anytime. Even with that ugly color.

    I completely agree. The 959 is a technological marvel, but to me it is an ugly duckling.

    Alex, i would take the GT3RS anyday.

    Re: 959 in Paris

    this color is ugly!
    my buddy's 959 is nice:

    Re: 959 in Paris

    Hey Mouse, good to see you! Heard from Pieter you have a GT3 now! That was exactly the pic I was talking about!
    BTW, healey, do you happen to have more pics of that 959? It looks so gorgeous!

    I can only imagine what that looks like. However, I love the 959.

    Hmmm, I'm imagining that pastel mint green that Porsche used on the 968 about 12 years ago as exterior color and jasmine yellow as interior color.

    Wasn't there a vomiting Instant Graemlin somewhere in that menu?

    Re: 959 in Paris

    Give the guy a break.

    Look at Ferry Porsches own cars - Green with Green interiors - both his own 928 and Boxster - and
    both were automatics.

    Who on Rennteam has a green/green Porsche?

    So, I dont think we can throw stones at the emirs car.

    For some time, the dark (mostly metallic) green was a pretty common colour over here in Germany. A couple of years ago, almost all BMW 7series and even some 5series were green, I never liked this colour. Also saw tons of 928 in that colour, horrible.

    That I don't get, the 993 is so much better looking, plus you turn a great car into a fake one...

    Re: 959 in Paris

    Here is a hidden gem of a dark metallic example, don't know if this was ferry's color but you would not have to twist my arm too hard to get me to add this one.

    Pics last year of 1989 928 GT with 312 orig. miles in green.

    Wow, that thing still looks brand new!

    Re: 959 in Paris

    Couldn't help to notice the "unleaded fuel only", this sticker has been at the instruments since 1989 for no reason
