the 1985 prototype was the most beautiful, I wonder if it is possible to get those dish alloy wheels?

1320 miles from my house to Stokholm.

I mentioned it the The Wife , showed her the route.

We have to go through Denmark.

"F**k you, I've always wanted to go to Denmark, visit Copenhagen, see the statue", she said.

I thought it was Venice, Florence etc that she always wanted to go to. Dont know

Perhaps the best route would be to recreate the Trotters 'To Hull and Back' escapade. Naturally the route takes you through Amsterdam Grin

Love the 959 even though the looks seem to of dated a little, it is one of the best cars even produced.

No Castles , just an big showroom with collector cars.

Yes the design is old, but the car has an extremly low airflow resistans and do not need any wings or spoilers to keep the car Quick and on the ground.


The dished Wheel centers are just an hubcap, covering the five spoke Wheel in the back.
Can be an different spoke design on those, but i have bought an set of BBS rennen Wheels in 18 inch.
Have not tried them out yet.
BBS made two sets of these special centers for the 59.
The other set is in Los Angeles.



The hexagon in the center is for keeping the tool in Place.

Will change the color and polish the lip later on.

Hans

Hans,

Congratulations, more than a car, a small piece of history too.

Would love to visit your place for a closer look but a little too far for now.

Enjoy!

TJ

1998 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Mon Sep 16, 2013 8:24 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

Anyone with more than a passing interest in these incredible cars should look into the work of Canepa Design in the USA, who has continually developed these cars (with Porsche's blessing) and carry on doing.

Bruce Canepa was the person who enabled the 959 to come to the USA in the first place, and have developed the cars to a reliable 650bhp (bear in mind if the racing programme had gone ahead the engines were good for 700bhp Porsche said originally).

A gen II car is the closest you can get to an official new 959, bear in mind 1983 electrics etc and suspension have moved on a lot

http://www.canepa.com/custom/959_story.html

"Canepa Design was instrumental in passing of the “show and display” legislation, which allowed these sought after vehicles to be driven in the United States for the first time. In addition, Canepa Design invested years of research and development to bring this awesome supercar to a new level of performance including California and Federal emissions compliance. Bruce Canepa was fortunate to be one of those lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase one of these 959s in 1988. The opportunity to finally drive the 959 on U.S. roads caused Canepa to evaluate and determine what components and systems should be upgraded. Had Porsche continued production of the 959, there is no doubt that evolution would have played a major role in its future. Years of continuous research and development have produced a new “state-of-the-art” Porsche 959. Faster, smoother, better handling and ride quality, are just part of the results.

[b]Phase II Engine Upgrade
The phase II engine system includes eliminating the factory sequential turbo system and installation of an all new twin turbo system including new Garrett “Disco Potato” ball-bearing turbos, re-designed wastegates with TiAL diaphragms and titanium heat shields. Cam timing is optimized in addition to blueprinting all intake and exhaust valve springs. New intake runners are matched to K&N Air Filters. Upgraded fuel system, EGR, modern engine management system with ADL, F1 technology engine wiring harnesses, high output ignition system, upgraded alternator charge system and battery module, air pumps and air regulator valves, spark plugs, idle control valve, sensors, connectors, harness shielding, switches, adapters, hardware, etc. (369 new components in all.) A complete new stainless steel exhaust system with Porsche original equipment dual stainless catalytics are utilized. The exhaust is fitted with our new bypass system producing increased horsepower and a more aggressive engine note at the flick of a dash mounted switch. In addition the entire clutch system has been modified and upgraded to improve pedal feel and actuation. This includes an improved pressure plate, disc, and modified clutch pedal assembly.

Suspension
The suspension has been upgraded to 959 S specifications incorporating Canepa Design’s new gas strut design and titanium coil-over springs.

Wheels
Canepa Design has re-engineered the factory wheels and developed a new bead design and modification which allows the installation of today’s state-of-the-art high performance ‘Z’ rated radial tires. Additional benefits include greatly improved handling and grip and an overall improved appearance.
