Pure Porsche does not referto the 911 mythology nor the badge at the front, but to
the ability of PAG engineers to create something brilliant out of a disparate pile of
bits and pieces. In 1997 Porsche-Motorsports had to develop a new range of
competitive water-cooled racing engines. It had a wide range of experience in
water-cooled racing engines including: • Indianapolis 500 and Formula one
racing cars. • Le Mans; Porsche 936-81, 962C, 961 and GT-1. • Paris-Dakar

With a well-documented history of building ultra-high performance cars, the
release of the 959 was not a complete surprise. The 959 moved the bar a few

America anyway. Porsche would have had to crash test a minimum of four 959s
to be considered for legal use in the U.S. and chose not to do so. Otis Chandler
was able to ...

An industry dedicated to converting 959 engines, bumpers, seat belt systems,
door locks, and lights to meet U.S. regulations arose, but as of 2008, cars at 20
years of age no longer require these changes. A flurry of buyers acquired 959s
soon after that. Porsche's Typ 961 road racer debuted in 1986 at Le Mans. It ran
in the IMSA GTX (experimental) class because the FIA had no four-wheel-drive
racing series. And because Porsche's 959 production had not begun yet, the car

"The Ferrari F40 had just come out, and the Porsche 959 supercar was out, and
Road & Track magazine decided they wanted to see which was the world's
fastest production car," recalls Ruf Porsche owner Steve Beddor. "And, more
important, could it break the 200-mph barrier. Porsche claimed to have done 202
with the 959, so Road & Track invited the 959 and a variety of other very fast cars
to a test. "Paul Frere [Road & Track's European editor] knew Ruf and got him an
invitation, ...
