I often browse the Canepa Cars. Most of them are ultra low miles (some are "showroom" miles).

Surely this is one of the finest specialists anywhere in the world.

2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

I dispute that the styling is timeless. It looks like a 993 with a bad bodykit. A great feat of engineering though.

I don't know. It was pretty ugly when it was launched, and still is (ie timeless).

I still want one though - possibly the greatest car ever made (it created a whole new genre which spawned the F1, Veyron, Zonda etc...).

Some haven't even hit the showroom (before they inexplicably get hoovered up by Canepa):

Ugly.


There was one in Leicester for a while several years ago and it produced two sets of reactions.

Amazement/shock/horror by other drivers, because the 959 isn't a small or quiet car. When you're on the road with or near it, you know it.

And disbelief. The 'Nah, m8, it's a repro' sort of thing.

So, ugly or not, I agree with you.

I agree with you guys...

(pauses to take some LSD)

I don't like it either...

(pauses to eat some mushrooms)

It's the ugliest thing I've seen for sure...

(Pauses to drop beano acid tab on the tongue)

I would not want one...

(drops some hash onto the hot knives)

I would not be seen dead in it...

(bag full of glue strectched over face)

You would laugh me out the carpark at the next Brooklands meet...

(Belt round arm)

It's sh1ite

(self seal bag full of disco biscuits)

Oh goddammit, it just won't work, I LIKE it, alright, I LIKE it, it's a 959 and it's just lush.
Embarassed


I need some of whatever you guys are on.
Dont know

I don't think its ugly, but it is certainly distinctive.

The expression 'borderline bolier' springs to mind and in this case i definitely would.

Alfa SZ / RZ are in the same category
