Exotic Car | Porsche 959 Exotic Car

SomePorsche 959 people might already forgotten this exotic car but I still list this as one of the legendary ultimate supercars ever made, The Porsche 959 even only finishing as the second best supercars in the 80's this model made a name for Porsche, which they're now known to be the acceleration specialist because of the shocking numbers of Porsche 959 that can accelerate 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds well sure now that number is not that special anymore but in the 80's it is incredible, and that is their key weapon over their rival the Ferrari F40 which could only achieve it in 3.8 seconds.
supercarsJust like today the Exotic car Ferrari Enzo go up against the Porsche Carrera GT which is more like a dejavu, because in the late 80's Porsche 959 had a showdown against Ferrari's F40 which is in the spotlight, and it ends up the same as today which Ferrari always did got the edge in the straight road and the Porsche Catches up at the corners because of its acceleration.

I know the view of this Porsche 959 isn't as pleasing as it should be which is one of the weakness of this exotic car, people claims it look so much like the 911 but in my opinion it is what it should be, actually all Porsche cars look alike because that's their concept and their trademark they only differ in they're measurements but all of them has almost the same face and body, and this shouldn't even be an issue, the only downside of the Porsche 959 for me would probably be the interior design and materials which looks a bit crappy. but in terms of performance and exterior looks all I can say is Porsche 959 is already what it should be.

As for the performance of Porsche 959 it is almost perfect in its time, equipped with a twin turbocharged engine and a 4 wheel drive type, this exotic car performs extremely well in traction control over their 2WD rivals, and as a result it delivers a superior acceleration speed which over powered the Ferrari F40, although Porsche 959 didn't reach the top speed mark of 200 mph which they only acheive a shortahnded 197 mph but with this Acceleration numbers of 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, 0 to 100 mph in 8.3 seconds and 0 to 125 mph in 12.8 seconds it is certain that this car will be go down the history as one of the fastest accelerating supercars of all time.
