Porsche introduced two exclusive copies of the coupe 959

Cars were built by special order of the Arab prince. Specialists from the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur division worked on the machines – the photos were published on the brand’s Facebook page.

The German coupe 959 is one of our favorite Porsche models. The car was built in the so-called “golden era” of sports cars. The 959 coupe, which was equipped with a twin-turbo engine, was one of the most powerful production cars of the late 1980s, and also became the fastest production car in the world with a top speed of 317 km / h. This is simply phenomenal for 1986!

Although there were several special editions of the 959, including the limited edition 959S with a more powerful 508-horsepower engine and the coupe version for the Paris-Dakar rally, none of them were special enough for some customers.

Back in the late 1980s, Porsche worked hard to create its own dedicated unit, which created models in accordance with customer requests – such a company received the designation Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. At that time, one Arab sheikh used the services of these guys and ordered at least seven unique versions of the 959 model for his collection.

 Porsche has posted two instances of the model in this series on its official Facebook page. I must say that these cars are different from everything that we have seen so far. The first in the series is a red car with a red interior and several unique “touches” in the cabin, including the Porsche lettering on a leather steering wheel, a special “decoration” on the gear lever and wooden decorations on the dashboard. Another instance is made in a dark gold shade and received gilded exhaust pipes.
