1988 Porsche 959 Sport

car description

1988 Porsche 959S VIN: WP0ZZZ95ZJS905021 Finished at the Porsche factory on October 4th, 1988 this car was originally contracted to American businessman, George Gillett of Florida. As with all the 29 US bound 959S this example was not authorized for import by the DOT after a failed attempt to import them as track cars. It would be kept in France during its first years. 5021 was purchased by a Mr. Gabel of Berlin, Germany in 2008 at 1,430 miles. Gabel would eventually sell the car, now with 2,141 miles, through the German dealer, E. Theisen, to Fawaz Al-Hasawi, a Kuwaiti businessman. Al-Hasawi had an exceptional collection of cars housed in London, England and moved the car there in July of 2014. In February of 2015 Al-Hasawi sold a large part of that collection in a historic sale referred by the press as the 'Aladdin's Cave of Classic Cars'. All 27 cars, which included the 959's period competitors the Ferrrari 288 GTO and F40, would move from London to their new owner John Collins who runs the Ferrari specialist Talacrest, in Ascot, Berkshire, England. Not being a Porsche specialist, in July of 2015 Collins would pass the car to DK Engineering, who are more familiar with the 959. T
