UPDATE: One of the Brumos Porsche B59s is for sale!
History was made back in 2011 when Brumos Porsche announced the creation of five rare, factory-built 911 Carrera GTS B59 Edition coupes built in honor of racing legend Hurley Haywood’s amazing overall Daytona 24 Hour victory record. At the time, Haywood was the only racer to achieve five overall wins.
“In creating the 911 Carrera GTS B59 Editions, we honored the close working relationship Brumos has enjoyed with the factory over the years,” explains Ray Shaffer, Brumos Porsche general manager. “The late Peter Gregg often ordered unique street and race cars for himself through his factory connections and we wanted to revive that same spirit for a new generation.”
Today these five special coupes live interesting and separate lives. This video follows automotive filmmaker Frazer Spowart of Autocraft Media as he travels the United States on his mission to track down the B59s and learn their story through the words of their enthusiastic owners. Theirs is an experience as unique as Haywood’s factory hot rods. It’s what happens when legendary lineage meets legendary driver.
