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)

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

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.

Porsche can make a really fast exquisite car along with common car comforts such as power seats in this whereas F40 didn't, same for porsche 918 , it has all sort of comforts you can expect from a modern car whereas the p1 doesn't but both are brutally fast.

The Walther Röhrl Porsche! The only true ancestor of the Ur-Quattro! IN *RED?* *REALLY?* If this paintjob is originally done in Zuffenhausen, I feel the force making me ask myself: What went wrong? This unexplainable piece of engineering art should have only been shipped in three paintjobs to choose from. Those being white, anthracite, and silver. No red, blue, or racing green. A RED Porsche???? And not only "a" Porsche, but the finest one? Soooo sad.

I´ve read an anecdote in a German car magazine, that during the development of the 959 chief R/D engineer Helmut Bott returned from a test drive and said to his staff: "At 125 mph the car feels a bit squirmy..." The engineers were shocked before he added: "...on gravel..."

I love the cars this guy reviews but man he is impossible to watch....I dont think a more annoying person exists and just by talking,grimacing and obviously scripting every single thing from clothes to how many times he says "hole" so people think hes quirky and "oh, thats so Doug" we can make it a drinking game etc... Obnoxiousness personified.

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.

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.
