Why Is This Porsche Supercar Worth Over One Million Dollars?

Worth. Every. Penny.

We thought the Porsche 959 Komfort was rare, but this is the second model in as many months we have seen headed for the auction block. Are owners cashing in on a car that has long been considered one of the greatest Porsches ever? Perhaps, but even if the new owner has to pay the $1 million - $1.3 million Sotheby’s expects it to sell for in next week’s auction, they will have a timeless classic on their hands. The price of this eighties supercar is only going one way.

One of just 337 ever made, the Porsche 959K boasts a 2.85-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine rated at 450 hp. Combined with an advanced all-wheel-drive system, the 25-year-old supercar can sprint to 62 mph in a blistering 3.5 seconds. The car lived in Spain for 20 years before moving to the US in 2011, where it’s current owner has kept it in a climate-controlled garage and spent $40k on a major service. With just 21,000 km on the clock, this is a unique opportunity to own one of the most sought-after Porsches on the planet.
