I thought the top one was the setting to use when repelling a volley of arrows launched by a legion of Roman archers.

It seems obvious to everybody but me.

Where did all the original parts go?

Looking at Waynes signature, it suddenly became obvious to me!

Wayne's writing a new book:

101 Projects for your Porsche 959!

Can I buy an autographed copy?

If you part it!

I got dibs on the 959 Porsche CD Player -
I could also use the Ride Height Selector knob.
If you have the key for the gas cap I WILL take it!
Also I need the drivers side rear quarter - see attached pic!

Let me know how I should pay!

Is paypal ok?

That looks like what is called a "workhorse" vehicle in the auto manufacturing business.
Workhorses are "rode hard and put away wet", getting fairly hacked up as the engineers try to solve problems or new work on new ideas and usually get crushed at the end of their short, eventful lives.
My advice is to invest in real estate, unless you can buy it for $500.

I want it... may I have it please?

For some reason this argument works when my daughters use it, so I thought I'd give it a try.

That's full 4WD lock - for "offroading".

I suppose all "959 people" know about all other 959's for sale, but just in case, here's a little number for only around $385K.

But, you may have to move to Switzerland to enjoy it fully.

Why did the factory let that out >? manufactures usually destroy all the mock up cars.

And how did you find that thing !

Very neat.

What's the rough price tag for a car like that?

959

Dear Wayne, dear all,

First of all congratualtions for your car..and for keeping and preserving the spirit of the 959 alive. When I was a child..this car was may dream..thus a typical childhooddream (Im 31 years old now - so when it came out I was really a small kid)

My father and my family was always involved with Porsche...we own a few as well. A few days ago I saw your site for the first time...although I know of Pelican Parts of course before.

Anyway..to cut a short story long...I was just about to buy a GT3 when I saw this one here again..its the Japanese car - now being for sale on the German website ---but appearantly in Norway.
http://www.mobile.de/home/index.html?lang=en
Just put in Porsche as make and 959 as model..

But the story gets more interesting...yesterday I was offered a contact to somebody in the UK who has a smashed 959, in silver, with less than 15,000km...
I will call this person tonight..apparently - engine and chassis are OK..but wings and other small outside parts are broken..

My question now: Where could I get parts for the 959--does the factory still have some or did Mr Wiedeking convert them all cash already

I will keep you updated on the smashed one in he UK...

a.

I remember seeing that "Test Mule" many years ago and was wondering if it made it back on the road.

Did you buy it Wayne?
