Porsche 959 specifications

The real Porsche

The Porsche 959 from 1987 was a high-tech icon, desert winner and dream car at the same time – because its technology pointed far into the future.

Even after 30 years, the Weissach model athlete is still an impressive appearance. The soft contours, the wide rear end with the fully integrated wing, the flared fender bolsters, the wheels that were huge for the time. The Porsche 959 still has as many mouths open with amazement today as it did in 1987.

Nowadays the 959 beats almost every modern 911 above the Carrera in terms of performance. But such comparisons are of course unfair, because you have to see them in a temporal context. In other words: against the opponents of the past. The strongest in-house competitor, the 911 Turbo Sport, achieved a top speed of 275 km/h at the time and only scratched the 100 km/h mark after five instead of 3.7 seconds like the 959. The Ferrari Testarossa even needed 5.3 seconds, at top speed 290 km/h – the 959 managed 315 km/h. And the already aging Lamborghini Countach only managed 5.4 seconds and around 300 km/h in the LP500S version. You can see – the 959 was “King of the Road” in this environment.

But the real opponent came from Maranello in the form of a much sharper weapon. The Ferrari F40 pursued a technically contrary concept and slightly different goals. The Ferrari was primarily about raw power. Its 2.9 liter bi-turbo V8 with 478 hp outperformed the 450 hp 2.85 liter bi-turbo boxer of the 959 and, with 12.2 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 200 km/h, took 1.3 seconds off the significantly heavier Porsche.

The CSR2 959

The Porsche can fit 98 Fusion parts, so far nothing special. The 959 should run 10.388s.
