    CAR magazine this month devoted space to the great supercars

    What I found interesting was they claimed the 959 was the last great supercar from Porsche. WTF? The CGT out performs it in every way. Apparently they are justifying their conclusion based on the CGT handling. Though a technological marvel, they stated it was "hard to drive well". If you drove it right, it was extremely rewarding. However, driving it right was difficult.Clearly a car not for me.

    BTW, in doing the piece they spoke with the person in charge of the CGT development and he stated there would not be a successor to the CGT. He stated if they came out with a successor it would severely reduce the value of the present CGT. Where has he been?

    The F40 was the car they were enchanted with.

    There is a love affair with the 959.

    For its day it was the technology leader and benefited
    from the look alikes that were winning in Rallyes.

    That said.. hehe..go price just one replacement wheel.

    3000.00 GBP

    Every way?

    You have to admit, it was way ahead of it's time. I recently saw where a well used one went for $900,000.00 or so.
    Very well kept low miles samples are bringing over 1 mil., I believe.

    Re: CAR magazine this month devoted space to the great super

    indeed the 959 was a master piece in technology at the time
