I remember reading about this in 7th grade and at first they wouldn't let these come into america it was a big stink and i was so bummed. Like i could afford one lmao. But my uncle had bought a new 87 911 and in 89 bought a new 911 turbo so i was working on them and adjusting ride height. The 911 hass been my favorite car since i was 9 yrs old and still is to this day and im 43. 911 is the best car on planet earth👍🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁

I think the rationale for the over made first aid kit is that Porsche thought that the car would be commonplace in offroading or rally, which can give some really nasty accidents.

I saw this car a couple of weeks ago. Live in Newport Beach. I knew immediately it was special and a 959. I own 993 C4S which is step son of 959. Absolutely beautiful.

The wheels were extremely awesome in their own right....hollow spokes to allow air to flow through and they helped the tire pressure sensors. Wheels were made out of magnesium.

Could you imagine, if on camera, some teen on Instagram or Snap chat, rear ended doug at a stop light...so bad. Not life ending bad but car ending bad. Just saying because I have literally witnessed two of the accidents happen in the last few months. Like, have to stay and make a statement to police. That would be just sad.

I was aware of this car, but until seeing this video, if I were to see one on the street I would have thought it was "just" an 80s 911 Turbo.

Wouldn't it technically be more of a predecessor to the 911 GT1? Both came from Endurance-based racing chassis, and were turned into street cars.

Also : the branches of the rims are empty ! So the air of the tyre is going inside and it allows to detect if there is a rift. As well, the engine what air-cooled as for all other 911 but the cylinder head was water cool. The G drive is actually the 1st gear but for homologation purposes (6 speed was not possible) the called the 1st gear G so the car remains a 5 speed car. And very interesting as well, Porsche did a 3rd "model" (in addition to sport & comfort) of the 959, named 959 S. This model could have between 460 and 515 HP depending on customer choice. The +30 years old car is a myth ! Good review thanks

6:35 Not nearly as cool as the Lamborghini V12 which had the firing order embossed in the cam cover up until the Diablo days
10:40 Not really, 964 series 911 Turbo S featured this hole. Come on Doug, I'm more Doug than you!
Edit: Just seen you added about the 964!

Hi Doug, Love your Sow. Watch it Regularly.
Just seen your review on the PORSCHE 959. I Remember WHEN this Car was Released, and one of the MOST STRANGE FEATURES were in the WHEELS. You mentioned that YOU RECOGNIZE the Rims Immesiately as a 959 Rim.
There was ONE FEATURE that you DID NOT Mention. Maybe you did NOT KNOW IT, BUT the Rim Spokes were HOLLOW and the AIR in the Tires ALSO FILLED THE HOLLOW RIMS. Please let me know IF this IS aFeature that Exists.
Thanks Charles Gruss, Toronto, Canada.

Dear Doug Demuro,
Great video!! However you forgot one major part about the glorious Porsche 959. THE EXHAUST SOUND!!! In my opinion it is the most beautiful exhaust note a vehicle could possibly make..

Awesome review! I made a plastic model of this car when I was a kid, so enjoyed learning about the features and quirks. Can’t believe you got over 700 thumbs down reviews. Some people are tough critics! Geesh! I dare any of them to make a better review in a 959 or even get a chance to do one.

Doug, you're wrong about Gelande gear. It was not meant for off-roading, actually it was a cheat made by Porsche to meet noise regulations.
Car in first gear was to noisy, so they renamed first gear to  "off-road", second to first and so on.

I bet the extra 2 mph of the sport model has more to do with the slightly less drag of the missing mirror than it has to do with weight reduction.
Weight has less to do with top speed than drag does, especially when the weight difference is relatively small.

I remember dreaming about this car a long time ago. Now, I am glad I didn't realize all of it's potentials till now. Absolutely amazing car. Especially, all that tech that is has. Adjustable height, 6 speed gear box(kind of), AWD, plus many more.
Since, it's almost the end of 2018. Could you do a favorites of 2018 video?

There is basically a fun fact behind the G-gear. Since in Germany at this time it was regulated to measure the loudness of a car in third gear at a specific speed and Porsche could not meet the requirement they decided to redefine first gear. That meant they could measure the loudness in forth gear (labeled as 3) legally...
also the spokes of the wheels are hollow since the tire pressure measuring system is installed in the hub.
