When the Porsche 959 was launched back in 1986, it featured many hi-tech features that are now often considered standard fare for not only sports cars, but cars in general. Today we have the all-new Porsche 918 Spyder, and like the 959, it’s a modern breakthrough in technology. So what are the chances that one day in the future its technology will be considered mainstream? It’s a tough question to answer. So perhaps it’s best to take another look at the 959 and see how its technology helped pave the way forward.
