PORSCHE 959


"This technological wunderkind of old Walter Röhrl, a healthy dose of skepticism is in order. “If you let up off the gas,” he says, “the tail rears up, but if you hit the gas again, it immediately stabilizes.” And that’s exactly how it went. You’re not dancing on a razor’s edge in the 959; it inspires confidence"

 

"It’s almost 22 years from now and still it got the killer looks and performance, you can see the innovations done by porsche for their vehicles"
