Question 959s?

Was there a 959S? I see one for sale under Collectable cars tab.

http://www.carcity.com.hk/

What was the difference?

I believe there was a Sport version of the 959, which didn't have all the luxuries as the normal 959, therefore was lighter.

Have a look here!

959 Sports - Tested by Auto, Motor und Sport
Top Speed 197 mph
0-100 km/h (62 mph) 3.7 sec
0-160 km/h (99.5 mph) 8.3 sec
0-200 km/h (124 mph) 13.0 sec
Standing 1/4 mile 11.9 sec Not as fast as Juan's Carrera
Standing 1000 m 21.6 sec

IIRC, they're pretty rare. As in, build numbers in the single digits (maybe just 2?). Can't recall the site where I read that--perhaps Paul Frere's book on the 911. My stuff is all in storage, so perhaps someone could look that up for confirmation.
