If most people don't know and don't care... It's not really an icon, now is it.

Wearing decent headphones, the engine and road sounds are extremely vivid. I kinda wanted you to stop talking just to listen, as the versimilitude of the sound was dramatically effective.

I thought I just liked the 959 as the cool 80's supercar from Porsche, I never really read anything about it or watch anything about it really. I knew there was rally versions, but I thought they were just modified version, when you show the hydraulic suspension I just felt in love. I live in Canada an 4 wheel car are a must here, but my dream car every time i think what car I would make if I was a car producer or if I had fuck you money is a 2 door sport car with 4 wheel drive and raised suspension. This is everything I ever wanted a car to be, sad that it's a 1.5 million collector car. Even if I had the money, I would like to be able to drive that car without the fear to destroy something so rare.

I was 22 when these came out, absolutely loved them, way ahead of the F40 for me (that for me was topped by the 288 GTO anyway). Still remember being just outside the pits at Le Mans and watching a wrecked 961 being towed in at about 5am in the morning.

Looks like it's giving birth to a supercar.

I have a theory about Porsche first aid kits. Many Porsche owners are doctors and they could need the extra content of the first aid kit for roadside emergency surgery.

Doug sounds surprised the Porsche 959 is shittier than he thought it would be.

Terry Forth

One of the best cars of all time imo! I had never seen the suspension being raised before - so thanks for that. I was actually fortunate enough to see these being built in Zuffenhausen in the spring of 1986, when I was having a special guided tour at their facilities. It was a day to remember!

That bit at the end where the guys in the Lambo roll up and start freaking out over the car makes the whole video.

As enjoyable as this whole video was, the outtakes were just epic, especially in sequence. "Nothing special, just an old Porsche" "No no no no!" And then the epic lens blow, or ELB. The outtakes get a 10/10.

1.5 million for a car that would take maybe 25k a year for upkeep no thanks! I like my nice 1974 chevy monza with a ls1 supercharged with big wheels that would blow this car away and doing most myself only invested about 30k into it.

At the end of summer '85 living with my parents in Frankfurt, my dad took me to the Frankfurt Motor Show to see the unveiling of the 959. It was the cutaway model showing off all the internals, sort of like a David Kimble print, mounted on a tilted platform. We were surrounded by auto journalists and photographers from all over the world and there I was clicking away with my Minolta. A couple weeks later I brought the prints back to the States and showed them off to everyone a couple weeks before those same shots arrived in all the car magazines. There were lots of other cars there but the 959 was clearly the star of the show. No test drives, unfortunately.

Silliest looking Porsche ever. Looks like the illicit love child of a 911 and Toyota Supra. And VW roof fabric??? Hilarious!

Most likely the bigger turbo takes over at about 4000rpm, hence why it feels like it ”wakes up” at that point

Doug the type of guy who talks about the group B and doesn't mention the glorious Ferrari 288 GTO.
