Is the 959 the Greatest Porsche Ever?

Supercar

Without the 959, the modern 911 Turbo and Carrera 4 wouldn't exist.

Just 337 examples were built in its three years of production. The Porsche 959 was more than just a Group B rally car. It also happened to be the world’s fastest production car for a time, helping convince the German sports car builder to make the 911 Turbo all-wheel drive and build the Carrera 4. Powered by a 2.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six paired to a six-speed manual, the 959 weighed just over 3,100 lbs. and could hit a top speed of 197 mph and a 0-62 sprint time of 3.7 seconds. Could the aerodynamic 959 be the greatest Porsche ever built? Quite possibly.
