One of the greatest “Supercars” of all time
Less than 300 road-going production 959 supercars were built by Porsche. Their timeless design, state-of-the-art systems and superior driving characteristics made them one of the greatest “supercars” of all time. Originally not imported or federalized for the U.S. market, Canepa was instrumental in the passing of the Show or Display law, the federal legislation that allowed these highly sought-after vehicles to be driven in the U.S. for the first time in 1999.
Bruce Canepa was fortunate enough to be one of those lucky enough to have experienced a Porsche 959 in 1987. The opportunity to finally drive the 959 on U.S. roads ten years later led Bruce to evaluate and determine what components and systems could or should be upgraded. After decades of continuous research and development, thousands of real-world miles driven and countless hours invested, Canepa has introduced the final evolution of upgrades it will create for the Porsche 959 “Reimagined” by Canepa.
This 959SC chassis 003 is finished in spectacular Porsche Emerald Green with an inviting matching green interior. It has gone through a complete recommission through our SC program and has seen upgrades within its engine, drivetrain, suspension, and brake systems. Additional upgrades include audio, wheels/tires, lighting, exhaust, etc.
The upgraded parallel twin-turbo system featuring Borg-Warner turbos assists the completely revamped engine and management system to produce a mind-blowing 800+ horsepower and 600 lb/ft of torque. As for suspension, by upgrading the original 959S coilover system with Penske custom valved shocks and titanium coil-over springs you’re treated to greatly improved low-speed and high-speed handling along with smoother ride quality on all types of road surfaces. To further increase the ride quality and handling performance, Canepa designed and produced a new 18-inch wheel utilizing modern technology while still staying true to Porsche’s original 959 design.
Thousands of man hours are put into each “SC” build. Over 3,000 individual pieces are restored, rebuilt, or upgraded! Nothing is left unchecked or untouched on every 959 that Canepa recommissions.
