What happens when you build the world’s fastest production car? You send it into an inhospitable territory to prove the Porsche Top 5 959 Paris-Dakar highlights. For the 1986 running of the world’s hardest rally, the supercar from Stuttgart was fitted with their first sequential turbochargers.
Boost was limited to 400 horsepower because 86 octane was all teams could use across the desert. Therefore, the drivers were blessed to have four driving modes to control the All-Wheel Drive system. The crankshaft had 7 main bearings and titanium rods, features that can be seen on the latest Porsche 911 Turbo for sale. After 8,700 miles the Porsche 959 teams finished first and second, immortalizing the car and its innovations.
