    This 959 S with all the gizmos and dual shock absorbers per wheel weighs 1,350 kg, yet Porsche couldn't deliver a 911 R that could weigh under 1,300 kg in 2wd form without  turbochargers and intercooler piping angry

    To be honest, I haven't weighed my 959S but I'd say it's closer to 1500 kg than 1350 kg. And that's fine, considering the power and it's delivery 1500 kg is not too bad. 

    Ugh!  Smiley

    No wonder the F40 always got the nod, despite being naked from the inside. But still, the 959 seems to be very special in every way possible Smiley

    I saw those on RM Auctions indeed, great collection! Any idea why the CGT's are US Spec?

    My favorites are in the front row:

    - 356 Speedster, then 959, then 928. 

    I should probably buy a 928 before it is too late. It is an amazing car. If they would run it from the production line today, it still would look up to date (maybe some fancy new LEDs and that's it!).


    Re: a very special collection

    The 928 would still look great with a 21st century design upgrades. I don't understand why Porsche didn't revive this car at some point.

    This car was a big success in Switzerland at the time  , specially in 4 . But it did not do well in the other countries. I have always loved it and still do. I agree , it has hardly aged. What other car is still so fresh after 30 years ?

    Friend of my father back on 1986 had a 928 and a 911. Getting out of the 911 and entering on the 928, was like getting out of a car and entering in a plane cockpit, it was years ahead of the 911. I was only 16 but was truly impressed by driving position and engine sound, what a car- You´re right Gnill, after 30 years it still looks great.

    928 is absolutely sexy car but also lots of money goes for maintenance , its not actually cheap to run over here but maybe in europe, its different.I regret sold mine many years ago tho

    I sold after 20 years my 964 RS in 2016...since then the prices were on hold or went a little bit down.

    IMO - there is no chance that you still can sell, for example a 964 RS for 225K €,  991 R for 500K € or a 997 Sportclassic for 350K € in 5 years...

    We will see.

    It was racing the Porsche Classic Race at Le mans Classic last week-end.

    This car is incredible. Everything is painted the same way than the outside!
