1988 Porsche 959 SC Restomod by Canepa

The Canepa program to update the 959 can be traced all the way back to the early-2000s, when his “Gen I” modifications boosted the power of the car to the high five hundreds thanks to what he’d gleaned from modifying them to meet stricter emissions standards (talk about trickle down tech!).

That step was followed by generations two and three, naturally, and now you can take a 959 to a set of buildings in Northern California and have it returned to you with nearly 800 horsepower thanks to a list of comprehensive updates to the power plant.

The 959SC—which in a clever play on Porsche naming conventions, stands for “Sport Canepa”—is the result of combining the aforementioned walloper of a motor (which features upgraded turbos, a more advanced ECU and ignition system, and all the supporting modifications necessary to support the newfound grunt) with a full concours-level restoration.

Hundreds of hours are put into body and paintwork, the full-leather interior is stretched and stitched in-house as well, and the client-selected colours and finishes ensure that each 959SC is truly one of one.

More than just a retune and retrim, these über 959s also have an upgraded clutch system and are converted to run fixed-height 959 Sport-style suspension, and for further consideration on the road-holding aspects of the car, Canepa is also in the process of producing an 18” wheel.

That sounds a bit boring in comparison to everything else, but not so much when you consider the details: they are recreating the same design as the OEM hollow-spoke magnesium units.

No easy feat, and better yet, it’s not just for those wanting a little more wheel and a little less tire. It’s the opposite really, and the whole idea is based on taking advantage of the best modern performance tire options which sadly don’t descend below the 18” mark that often.
