Unusual Porsche 911 for $888,888


Canadian online marketplace Pfaff Reserve has put up for sale a Porsche 911 Turbo S with a very unusual custom design. The compartment, built in 1998, belonged to Kuwaiti Prime Minister Nasser al-Muhammad al-Ahmed al-Sabah, who appeared to have extravagant taste. The car has a bright orange-yellow interior, and almost all the details and buttons are kept in a lurid color scheme, with the exception of the radio.

The interior of the Porsche 911 Turbo S, which belonged to the Arab sheikh, is richly used natural leather: it covers the seats, the steering wheel, the gear selector lever and even the buckles of the seat belts. Alongside the orange-yellow elements are mahogany inlays on the front, as well as a beige suede-like material that covers some of the door cards and the floor. To further personalize the salon, al-Sabah ordered embroidery on the headrests in the form of his own initials – NMS.

The body seems rather modest in comparison with the interior. It has been painted a cold, pale green hue, and the warm interior is echoed by yellow brake calipers on all wheels. On the technical side, the 911 Turbo S is powered by a 3.6-liter twin-turbo engine producing 450 horsepower and mated to a manual transmission.

According to the seller, the car traveled only 135 kilometers, 106 of them since the restoration, which was completed in 2014. The car was put up for sale with an impressive (and also unusual) price tag – $ 888,888.

In the fall, a unique Porsche was presented at the auction of the Sotheby’s auction house. The 959 Comfort Coupé in Wine Red Metallic is one of seven cars ordered from Porsche Exclusive by the Qatari royal family. In a little over thirty years, the sports car drove less than a thousand kilometers.
