Don't forget the one off 1989 slope nose owned by Robert Linton. This car had more options than any factory car built to date. IIRC he said it took 54 cow hides to complete the interior, including the leather faced and silk screened gauges and every square inch of everything else covered in leather. Not to mention the custom Stereo and rain sensor that raised the roof automatically upon detection of any rain.

I believe he said with the magnesium boost knob Hp could be safely raised to over 500 hp from the factory and it had a 6 speed tranny using many 959 parts. Has to be one of the nicest Porsche's ever made.
