Nissan-Owned 1988 Porsche 959 SC

The third-generation R32 GT-R was a technological tour de force rivaled only by one car — the Porsche 959. Nissan purchased a 959 through a Belgian third party after having a direct order declined. The 959 was shipped back to Japan, where it was disassembled to help develop the Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All terrains and Electronic Torque Split or ATTESA ET-S all-wheel-drive system for the R32. Nissan's 959 was never registered and eventually made it into private ownership. With less than 1,000 miles, this ex-Nissan 959 was selected for Canepa's ultra-exclusive 959 SC program. Canepa's SC specification replaces the Komfort model's active suspension with a lighter passive Penske system similar to the 959 Sport. The 2.8-liter flat-six now makes over 800 horsepower, up from the stock 444, thanks to new turbochargers and internal components like titanium connecting rods. The exterior wears Porsche Oak Green over a tobacco interior, all completed by Canepa. One of just 50 959 SCs, the car goes to auction in March at Amelia Island.
