When you hear that the Kuwaiti Prime Minister, His Highness, Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah, bought a 1998 Porsche 911 Turbo S, you might think, “Man! This dude has good taste.” Think again. Al-Sabah’s Porsche 911 Turbo S is not only THE ugliest Porsche we have ever seen; it’s one of the ugliest cars we’ve ever seen, period.
Not only does this Porsche harass your field of vision with contrasting colors of pale green and throw-up inside-of-a-pumpkin-orange, but it will also assault your wallet ( if someone wanted to buy it for some reason.) This royal Porsche 911 is currently for sale for the hefty (and strange) sum of $888,888.
What is the ugliest car ever made?
I won’t say this is definitely the ugliest car ever made, but it must be the ugliest Porsche 911 Turbo S ever made. The Drive reports that this specially-commissioned supercar is slathered in a pukey color called “Vanilla Yellow,” Although it looks a bit more like “Dead for a Month Green.”
While the exterior is certainly foul, we have only just begun to wretch.
Paired with the “bloated carcass Green” and bright-yellow brake calipers, the Sheikh, took to dressing the interior with his custom flair. The interior – which would be equally as useful as a distress flair as it is a Porsche 911 Turbo S interior – is coated in a uniquely foul mixture of two-tone orange and yellow leather with large splashes of burled wood panels. To seal the cacophony of Crayola that exploded on the inside of the Porsche, the Shiekh also used tan floor mats and carpets, for reasons only known to His Highness.
The madness is far from over for this custom Porsche 911 Turbo S
If the colors weren’t enough to drive Porsche and any onlookers mad, the Shiekh had literally every square inch of the interior wrapped in leather. Everything. The seat belt buckles, the window switches, dash buttons, and more; pick a surface inside this car, and it will be covered in either a horrendous yellow or a nausea-inducing orange. It is almost enjoyable if you can keep your eyes open long enough to see the dedication to this visual representation of free-form jazz.
Aside from the aesthetic horrors, this Porsche 911 Turbo S is still a serious German sports car, whether it looks like one or not. The prime minister didn’t drive the Porsche much as you might have guessed.
As we have seen from many a bring-a-Trailer listings over the past few years, crazy cars with low mileage tend to draw a crowd. It will be fascinating to see how the Porsche folks take to this one. Will the famous ownership and ridiculousness of the Porsche carry enough interest?
How much is a 1998 Porsche Turbo S worth?
According to The Drive, a fair estimate on a regular Porsche of this make and model would likely reach into the mid $200k range. But how will this clown car play?
The automotive market is crazier than ever right now. It is hard to know which cars will blow up in value or which will fade into obscurity. However, it is probably fair to say that this one isn’t likely to fade until it burns the retinas of everyone on Earth first.
