Here’s a nice video by the guys at eGarage featuring some iconic people from the history of the Porsche 959 project. Hurley Haywood gives his opinion on the impact the design of the Porsche 959 had on the whole 911 model line, while Peter Schutz, former CEO of Porsche AG, offers the view that the 959 may have had more affect on the automotive world than any car since its introduction. Given the sheer amount of technology built into the 959 at the time, he’s quite probably right.
This particular car is one of the original six prototypes and was owned by Helmuth Bott, head of Porsche R&D at the time and the man responsible for guiding the team that created it. Today, it lives in the Brumos Porsche Collection in Jacksonville, USA. Take a look at the car, but also, look at the museum scenes and the amazing collection of historic Porsches lurking in the background.
