The Porsche 959 is my ultimate dream-car, and has been for almost my entire life.

This surviving prototype was one of the first cars ever made, and is flawless in its originality. This includes Denloc racing wheels, cloth interior and bright white paint. Dreamy barely does this one justice, even with some panel gap issues in the hood and elsewhere.

Re-discovered my RM Auctions media credentials, so here is the 1985 Porsche 959 Prototype in all is mega-high-res glory.RM Monaco 2014 Highlights - 1985 Porsche 959 Prototype in Bright White Earns $653k 15-tile
