    Top speed: 195 mpg

    195 miles per gallon ... in a Porsche 959????

    Headlines!

    Well ... it is the SouthCoast Massachusetts website.

    Top speed: 195 mpg The story of the ultimate porsche

    ... The performance numbers generated by the 959 were staggering. They still are, even by today's standards. Zero-to-60 mph flashed by in about 3.8 seconds, with 100 m.p.h. occurring in less than nine seconds. Top speed was 195 mph. ...




    I'm guessing the person writing the article was not the same as the one doing the headline.

    Lol, who needs a diesel car?

    Re: Top speed: 195 mpg


    I didn't know the 959 was the most fuel efficient car in the world ....

    Re: Top speed: 195 mpg

    Gee, with German engineering like that who needs the Japanese.

    Re: Top speed: 195 mpg

    At least for me, the TOP Porsche ever......less than a couple of years ago, I could see one "in person", not driving it, and my "brand new" 997S seemed as a "teenager" ...and a GT beside...please beleive me, I found the 959 much nicer....(a pitty my HD crashed....not sure if I still have the pics, but I'll look for them)....Of course, the GT is a superior car, but, let's go to the real world...

    Why didn't they follow that way...unbeateable...Fantastic, Passionate...PORSCHE!

    Can you imagine nowdays how could be a Carrera?....

    Or maybe the thechnology is there, "undertaken" and developed, and waiting for the "profitable" moment to take it to light?...

    ...I just wonder....

    ....or maybe just dreaming....yes....I'm just a romantic stupid warrior.....(but considering nowdays better cars, not considering for how long their "endless" tradition will last)......In the end, my life in "finite"
