Whp and Crank HP. We actually got 305 at the crank and 268 at the wheels. I thought 300+ sounded better than 305(just a tiny bit conservative). :shrug:

911 Gauges
Seats are definitely Porsche 911 sports seats
The cloth and seat belts make me think it's gotta be an older 911 model, but the shifter looks like a 964 gen....

hmmm... :confused:

The real stumper is the cage. A factory cage with horizontal door bars?
Odd... think the Clubsports and RSR had them angled.
:shrug:

The AUTOFLUG belts were a dead giveaway as a P-car though.

is that a 959??

the cloth interior screams no, but i suppose it's possible... Then again, not sure if they had roll bars in stock form...

We have a winner!!:clap::clap::clap:
:bow:

*shwew*
That was a tough one - I kept thinking it was some version of the 964 Clubsport but the interior just didn't look right. The base around the shifter and those seats.

Once pauli33 mentioned the 959, the light bulb came on.
:D

That makes it pretty rare - don't think there were many Sports ordered, were there? Didn't nearly everyone go for the Komfort version?

eta: are the photos from the shop that does the US conversions? Seem to recall it was ECU/fuel injection stuff to get it show & display approved?

I'm pretty sure that the 959 was the only Porsche with the progressive colored horizontal seat stripes in leather(959) or Cloth(959S). These two cars are in as new condition! The Volcano Black one has a little over 3,000 kms on it. Just gorgeous!!

Unfortunatley I promised not to share any info on the cars except that they are both bone stock. NICE!
The Guards Red one is un-fing believable:eek::drool:
