Hypercar Heroes – 1988 Porsche 959 Komfort Brings $1.5M at Gooding Pebble Beach 2014



959k gifThe 959 is just coming out of a bit of limbo period - too young to be a true classic, but too old to have appeal among the trendiest supercar owners.

But the 959 appears to have firmly graduated to greatness and rapidly appreciating values.

This 959 Komfort with tastefully updated dark alloys and tinted windows brought in $1,45-million at Gooding and Company's Pebble Beach 2014 auction -- well above its $900,000 - $1,100,000 pre-sale estimate.

It is easy to see why -- the car is stunning and flawless.
