Hello ingame we have the stats for the Porsche 959 and not the S Verison / Sport Version *
The 959 S has 515HP and 339km/h topspeed.
So ingame we have the stats in the showroom for the normal version of the 959

I think you may be mistaken, according to the link the 's' version and the ' comfort' version both have 441hp, close to the 450 in the game.

However it does appear that a number of cars were produced with higher outputs due to the addition of factory fitted performance parts.

The Porsche 959S is the S-Version which was only built 29 times..
There's a reason on wikipedia the Sport is written in "Sport"
Komfort means just this :" Over the "Komfort" models, the 959 Sport versions have different seats incorporating racing-style harnesses, A/C delete, rear seat delete, an "S" steering wheel, factory leather-wrapped roll bar structure, and a more standard-fare coil over strut suspension, rather than the height-adjustable air suspension. "

So the version we have ingame is cleary not the 959S, you can see that if you go somewhere else then WIKIPEDIA even tho on the german site of Wikipedia its stated correctly that the 959S is the car that was built 29 times ;Porsche 959 S;
29 der Porsche 959 wurden als 515 PS starke Sport-Version mit größeren Turboladern und modifiziertem Überdruckventil für einen maximalen Ladedruck von 1,1 bar gebaut (intern als 959 S bezeichnet)
So ingame we dont have the 959S..
Also in a Video of JP-Performance there is a Person that works at Porsche and even he says that the Porsche 959S was the version which was tested by Auto, Motor und Sport at Nardo in 1988, which reached 339 km/h.
