Paid stupid money for it the factory has quite a few bits yet.
To answer questions about parts.
I have close contact with Porsche classic that sits with quite a knowledge of the 959. I do not know, but i think: all metal and parts like these are probably from 80's. Height suspenion parts with the membran can not be old-would not work. Porsche sends out a list of all the parts they reproduce. Leveling accumulators are part of these

80's: you may just contact me on my email add: roarolsen@gmail.com and I would be more than happy to help you with info from the factory regarding parts and help. Good luck with your car

Is the panel with the greenish hue, the 'left front inner fender panel', new from the factory? The same panel -I believe- was shown with what appeared to be some Porsche stickers on the other side in your earlier pictures. Does any of these stickers show a manufacturing date? I am curious if parts are still being manufactured or if this is truly New Old Stock from the 80s. I ordered some 959 suspension parts from the factory last year or so and they were only a year or two old.



What has your general experience regarding the availability of 959 parts from Porsche been like so far? Awesome stuff, keep it up.

Muffler for the 959

Hi guys.
Iīm now in the process of getting a new muffler made for the 959. Reason for that is that the original is stupid expensive plus that it`s nothing special with it. It does not have a particular cool sound either....

Is there anyone of you 959 owners that can help with dimensions and so forth or maybe some that have made new ones?

Thanks,
Roar

Rebuilding the 959

Here are a few more pics of the jigging. I`m about to send all the suspension parts over for powder coating...
Next will be to fit the roof, the quarter panel back and check dimensions...









Here are a few pics of the underbody plate made out of kevlar and nomex. This plate alone does not cost anymore that about 15000 us dollars....
I have applied 2 layers of carbon on top of it after the nomex repair and put it under vacuum. Now only respray remains. The repair coasted about 200 dollars max.

Maybe start with a 964 muffler. Similar in shape at least.

rebuilding the 959

Hahaha Wayne.
I certainly hope so for your sake Maybe mine will be on wheels before yours, but that is before I have started problem solving all the electronic and other problems that WILL surface as the key turns....
A bit concerned about the reservoirs for the height control system. Not looking forward to that expense. Could I maybe have on of your old bottles to see if I can figure a way out of the problem? Might have some good aviation people that might have solution...

Regards,
Roar

You should contact Ben and Brian at M&K/RarelyL8. I am sure they could help with a custom 959 muffler that would be cheaper and better than the factory.

Yes, Epic build thread.

I'm amazed by all the info on 959s.

I've always thought of them as Porsche's unicorn. Maybe I should get out more?
