Have a good day at school, sweetie! Don't lose your 959 first aid kit!

The first help set is there because you have to have one in most of the European countries. Since the law requires. (You must be reduced 4 people can be too) must also have a safety vest and a warning triangle. In some countries you have to take more with you.

I wonder how many owners have been doing 95.9 km/h or mph in their 959 at 9:59 am/pm while listening to 95.9 on the radio while it's 95.9 degrees out.

I disagree about the steering wheel, I mean I don't love it but it's far better than anything Ferrari has put in their cars over the past 20 years.

Doug, you missed the single most important quirk for Porsche nerds: that car had water-cooled heads on air-cooked cylinders!

Considering how I see a lot of AWD/4WD vehicles driven by n00bs in the snow I think every car with an AWD/4WD system needs a "laws of physics still apply" warning.

The Germans, and Porsche AG in particular, are well known for reusing parts (if it ain't broke, don't fix it), and it's rather amazing how much this supercar shares with their normal production road cars. The end and inside of the door, including door handles (inside and out) and door locks, look just like on my '83 911SC, including the same handle to open the engine bay and same hydraulics to hold it open. That key slot inside the end of the door for the alarm system is there too, as are the ashtray and the map lights on the sides of the roof. No power seats or hydraulics to adjust the ride height on the SC though :-) That black dot under the door covers the hole for the jack, which raises the whole side of the car. You didn't mention the headlight washer spray button either! One last point, the 934 and 935, which had a limited run of road-legal variants, had those holes in the rear fenders as well. Thanks for sharing this rare jewel with us Doug.

Thats actually a very small standard med kit and very smart, I have used mine in my mustang and my truck before and most times were in no way foreseen so having it just in case was very helpful, especially for a car that could see track duty at small and sometimes un-managed tracks where the driver is on their own and some bandages and quik clot could save their life.... most small offices and classrooms have more stuff in theirs than this Porsche.

Why didn't you open the side panels under hood? Every car I have ever owned had the firing order under the hood including a Toyota! Giant tail light?? It's pretty obvious the corners are the only lights. G is for granny gear. My 1980 280Z had the stopwatch/timer/clock, not that much of an innovation in 1989. Always the worst steering wheel! BEST PORSCHE EVER!!

Isn't it interesting that they achieved 198mph with 444hp and modern cars need 550hp or more to do the same. I thought we were supposed to be becoming more efficient, not less...

funny perk... owned a a lot of vw's mk1 and mk2 from this vintage and you find extremely similar if not identical components from the seat tilt handles, hood latch or trunk for the porsche, the steering wheels and door handles are extremly similar haha love german cars of that vintage

The trunk is the cutest teddy bear! The first aid kit is nothing special, all cars in Germany had to have one like that in the 80ies and 90ies by law. Not sure what is required today, it changes a little bit over time. You also need some basic first aid training to get a driver license in Germany.

If you had ever lived in Germany and owned a car while you lived there, you would have known that first aid kits and warning triangles are mandatory items to have in your car. The reason for this is if you are the first on scene of an accident, you have to stop and render aid until emergency services arrive.

Yeah dumbass the first aid kit is designed for accidents in Germany where there is no speed limit on the autobahn so yes it’s overkill because usually if you have an accident on the autobahn you’re dead. A limousine is referring to a normal four-door car in Germany at the time they were only concerned about the first and only market these cars were made for the German market not export markets. Not true S model had passenger side mirrors wouldn’t pass TUV no German manufacturers would do that anyway for a road car. What’s hilarious u think 88 is some pre historic era!!!! Sorry CGT is a complete POS compared to a 959. 959 was a complete car of what Porsche could do a CGT was only about a motor the rest of the car had zero attention or engineering .
