Obviously subjective. I love it!

I was very much, literally, a 'poster' car for my teenage years. I also had the Scalextric version.

IMHO you can see the DNA of the 959 in the looks (and also the underpinnings) of the 996 turbo, which was highly influential in my reason for wanting one.

996 turbo was a very advanced car in it's day, but the 959 was, in many areas, decades ahead.

Interesting, it would be good for them to do a second video with more about the car itself and the technology.

It was a great era, this and the F40- fabulous but a relatively blunt instrument in tech terms. There was a brilliant article and feature in Octane mag a while ago... so advanced for the time.

I think it looks fantastic, interesting to see DNA there in the 993tt and 996tt

And Surprised did you see the 'racking system of cars at 2:44!
