The 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort Hits The Auction Block Dare To Dream Collection

Certain vehicles stand out not just as icons of their era but as pioneers who redefined what was possible on the road. Among these legends is the 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort, a machine that shattered boundaries and set new standards for supercars during its time. Now, this exclusive classic is set to grace the auction stage at RM Sotheby’s Dare to Dream Collection event on May 31st – June 1st.

With just two recorded owners since its inception, this particular 959 holds a distinguished place in automotive lore. Imported to the United States and federalized for street use in 1992 under a special decree of the US Government, it was originally purchased by Norman Clement Stone, a visionary known for his foresight in both investments and fashion.

Stone’s ownership of the 959 adds a layer of prestige to its already storied history. He meticulously maintained the vehicle, entrusting its care to Porsche specialists Andial and Canepa Design. From 1989 onwards, a treasure trove of service invoices attests to Stone’s dedication, highlighting his commitment to ensuring this classic remained in prime condition.

Upon its debut in 1985, the Porsche 959 Komfort was a marvel of engineering, boasting cutting-edge features that pushed the boundaries of automotive technology. Every aspect of the 959 was crafted with precision and purpose, from sequential turbochargers to an intelligent four-wheel-drive system. Its Kevlar composite body panels and hollow-spoke magnesium wheels exemplified Porsche’s dedication to lightweight performance.

Under Stone’s ownership, the 959 underwent extensive upgrades, including a comprehensive restoration and mechanical overhaul to Canepa’s ‘Phase II’ specifications. These enhancements elevated the car’s performance to an impressive 640 horsepower, ensuring that its legacy as a true supercar would endure for years to come.

As part of the Dare to Dream Collection, the 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort, with chassis number WP0ZZZ95ZHS900059, represents a rare opportunity for enthusiasts and collectors alike. With an estimated auction price ranging from $1,100,000 to $1,500,000 USD, this exclusive classic is poised to command attention on the auction block.
