This vehicle is one of Porsche’s legendary 959 “Komfort” models. Just 336 examples were completed during a very short production run.
This particular example is the very well known Ex-Otto Glöckler 959 that he special ordered new for his Frankfurt, German Porsche Agency for his own personal use in November of 1987. The vehicle was completed on May 4th of 1988 and officially invoiced to him new two days later on May 6th. Glöckler requested his new 959 be completed with the standard exterior paint code “Grand Prix White but when it came to the interior, rather than going with one of the choices Porsche offered, he chose to have a custom interior done in an all “Dark Blue” leather that matched his favorite suit. For additional options he chose a combination of seven different features, six of which all had to do with the seats. Both left and right seats were the optional Sport Seats that were further fitted with electric heaters and with supplemental electrical motors to raise and lower them for better comfort. The final chosen option was Bridgestone all weather Sport Tires. This was a normal domestic or German market example and part of Glöckler’s “Special Wish/Special Request option package on this 959 was direct Factory delivery and test-driving instruction and assistance, known as “WERKSAUSLEFERUNG.”
Glöckler enjoyed and carefully cared and preserved his treasured 959 over the next several years until agreeing to a sale with Porsche collector Jürgen Oppermann. Oppermann re-regisgtered the car in his name and then later moved to Lugano, Switzerland. In doing so, he was legally able to bring his 959 with him making it one of just a very few that was formally imported to Switzerland in period.
This Porsche remained with Oppermann when he again moved, this time to Gstaad. Opperman continued to care and enjoy his 959 over the next two decades completing extensive maintenance and services as required, the last of which was completed on December 4th, 2014 at the official Porsche Service Center in Staad. Upon completion of this work, he stored the 959 for a short period of time before agreeing to the sale to a UK based dealer who recently imported the car to the States where it was formally re-registered and titled for the first time outside of Europe.
This Porsche 959 has had just two long-term caretakers and is completely void of rust or accident damage of any kind. This all matching numbers, 959 has covered just 25,570 kilometers since new and it has covered just 112 kilometers since the last major servicing. This Porsche will be sold complete with all of the original delivery items including the original Porsche build records, certificate of authenticity, books, tools and receipts going back to new.
