Finished at the Porsche factory on October 4th, 1988 this car was originally contracted to American businessman, George Gillett of Florida. As with all the 29 US bound 959S this example was not authorized for import by the DOT after a failed attempt to import them as track cars. It would be kept in France during its first years. 5021 was purchased by a Mr. Gabel of Berlin, Germany in 2008 at 1,430 miles. Gabel would eventually sell the car, now with 2,141 miles, through the German dealer, E. Theisen, to Fawaz Al-Hasawi, a Kuwaiti businessman. Al-Hasawi had an exceptional collection of cars housed in London, England and moved the car there in July of 2014. In February of 2015 Al-Hasawi sold a large part of that collection in a historic sale referred by the press as the 'Aladdin's Cave of Classic Cars'. All 27 cars, which included the 959's period competitors the Ferrrari 288 GTO and F40, would move from London to their new owner John Collins who runs the Ferrari specialist Talacrest, in Ascot, Berkshire, England. Not being a Porsche specialist, in July of 2015 Collins would pass the car to DK Engineering, who are more familiar with the 959. They would have Porsche Great Britain do a $15,000 full service to the car, and engage Canepa's 959 experts to remotely rebuild the car's traction control module. Canepa would purchase the car earlier this year and finally bring the car into the US only 28 years after its original purchase date. Since its arrival our 959 team has inspected the 2,200 mile car from stem to stern and found it to be an excellent original example of one of the best sportscars ever built. Fully concours prepared this legendary, as-new Porsche is ready to anchor any car collection, or for the indulgent, ready to be driven and experienced.
