One of the three Paris-Dakar Porsche 959s is going up for sale

The sale will coincide with Porsche’s 70th Anniversary celebrations.

One of the most famous Porsches is going up for sale this fall as RM Sotheby’s announces that one of the three 1985 Paris-Dakar 959s is going up for sale at their 70th Anniversary sale. The sale is part of Porsche’s 70th Anniversary celebrations, of which the auction will take place at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s said that the car is the only one of the three that is still in running order and was originally raced by René Metge, who didn’t win in this specific car, but brought some invaluable data to Porsche, which led them to win 1st, 2nd, and 6th place the next year in three improved 959s.
