Please take your seat and buckle your seatbelts, because you will need them for this one.
This is a 1998 Porsche 911 Turbo S that was reportedly commissioned by His Highness Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Sabah, the 6th Prime Minister of the State of Kuwait. It is by far one of the craziest color combinations I’ve ever laid my eyes on. As you can see from the outside, it’s an unusual shade of Vanilla Yellow, but it isn’t until we open the doors until we see one of the most bizarre and perhaps offensive color schemes in existence. Please brace yourself for this one.

Approximately 180 example of the 993 Turbo S were produced, and sadly one of them gave their lives for this. I know when you have the title “His Highness” and “Prime Minister” in your name, you can basically get what you want, but I can not imagine what the people at Porsche were saying to themselves when this order came in. Why of all the colors they went with yellow and orange, then picked burl wood to accent it, is beyond me. I think I’d rather have bright pink leather than this. Supposedly the story is the car just got back from a restoration, which means someone had a chance to fix this, but still decided to double down. I’m nearly speechless.
The asking price of $888,888 is probably just a total “throw it at the wall and see what sticks” price. A “normal” 993 Turbo S is trading between $250,000 and $400,000 right now, so you can see where this one is at. Will it find a new home? Probably just based on the fact it is so crazy and has a following based on how crazy it is. Still, what a bizarre offering.
So, this clown ordered up this color combo and it’s been driven a total of <100 miles? The fact that he did that just to LOOK at it as opposed to DRIVE it might be the most damning element of all. There’s no accounting for taste….
i think the people at Porsche were saying, “thank you for your payment”. i can’t imagine they care about what colors people select except that the more preposterous the order, the more money they make. the perfect buyer at this point is a McDonalds exec.
So it’s essentially a brand new car and it had to be restored ??
Aside from the color combo, which would require very dark glasses to even sit in…the asking price is truly insane. You could by a 959 for that money…
The sheik probably asked a 3 year old kid from his harem to pick the colors.
As awful as it is, it’s kind of neat. I love Arabs. They just do what they want the world be damned. Ha!
