Question 959s?

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

What was the difference?

Present 94 C36 AMG M-Benz, 93 SL500 M-Benz, 08 C63 AMG M-Benz

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!

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.
