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

      That first aid kit is actually standard in a German car since the 80s ^^
      Haven't changed much, you can still buy kits like these for around 10€ everywhere. You have to replace them every few years, the sterile parts expire.

      My only question for Bill Gates or Jerry Seinfeld would be 'Did you sign the first aid kit in your 959?'

      Actually, this is a pretty standard first aid kid from the late eighties and early nineties in germany. I had on in my 1993s Opel Corsa A gsi. In germany we like to be prepared for worst case scenarios... for example drive in WWIII with the 959 and offering first aid for a whole company. ;) best regards from germany

    You gave "one of the all-time icons of the automotive industry" a Doug Score of 65. I don't even know what to say other than you should just throw the Doug Score out for some cars. (this would be one of those cars)

    I'm just at the coffee ad. I'm really hoping you don't give the 959 a Doug Score...

    30 minutes talking about warning labels and books in the glovebox, two minutes driving it.

    Beautiful but no car worth that money

    Weil der vom Rennwagen 956 abgeleitete Boxer für die Straßenzulassung zu laut war, erklärte Porsche den Ersten zum Geländegang. So konnte der 959 die Geräuschmessung einen Gang höher (und damit leiser) bestehen. From Autobild.
    Means: Because the engine was too loud, porsche declared the first gear to the Offroad gear, so the measurement was one gear further up which means more silent so it passed ;)

    I'm kinda disappointed that no one will ever write their name on the first aid kit since that would lower the value

    one of my Fav cars, I think people don't notice since porches look all alike. i only think a GT or a 356 will give people notice

    F40 was such a kooler supercar. That ass on that 959 was like a dumpy ass on a fat women.

    So - there appears to be a keyhole in the trailing door edge (the part facing the jamb when the door is closed). What is the purpose of that keyhole?

    Central locking didn't just lock and unlock doors, it usually also locked the front and rear compartments (boot and engine) and the fuel filler door.
