A homologation special, just 292 examples of the Porsche 959 were built for road use and none for the US. Over the years, Canepa has worked on legalizing this overlooked gem and has now applied its three decades of experience to the 959SC. Beginning with a preowned 959, the car is completely stripped and undergoes an exhaustive restoration that includes fresh zinc coatings for metal components, new paint, and a recreated, all-new leather interior. Looks being only half the equation, the 959SC also receives a revised suspension, upgraded exhaust, turbo, clutch, and wheels, and a performance boost from 444 hp to nearly 800, allowing it to keep pace with modern supercars. Limited to just 50 units worldwide.
