I'm sorry, I guess I don't understand the question. You don't own a 959 these days for it's driving performance, you own it for it's heritage (and the bonus of excellent performance). That said, the price of a 993 Turbo is higher than that of a 996 Turbo which is a better performing car than the 993.
