Have a good day at school, sweetie! Don't lose your 959 first aid kit!

Fun fact: That is a German first aid kit. Being German it is of course standardised and there is of course a law specifying what needs to be in there. So every German car has this insane amount of bandages in it.

The first help set is there because you have to have one in most of the European countries. Since the law requires. (You must be reduced 4 people can be too) must also have a safety vest and a warning triangle. In some countries you have to take more with you.

The Germans, and Porsche AG in particular, are well known for reusing parts (if it ain't broke, don't fix it), and it's rather amazing how much this supercar shares with their normal production road cars. The end and inside of the door, including door handles (inside and out) and door locks, look just like on my '83 911SC, including the same handle to open the engine bay and same hydraulics to hold it open. That key slot inside the end of the door for the alarm system is there too, as are the ashtray and the map lights on the sides of the roof. No power seats or hydraulics to adjust the ride height on the SC though :-) That black dot under the door covers the hole for the jack, which raises the whole side of the car. You didn't mention the headlight washer spray button either! One last point, the 934 and 935, which had a limited run of road-legal variants, had those holes in the rear fenders as well. Thanks for sharing this rare jewel with us Doug.

Thats actually a very small standard med kit and very smart, I have used mine in my mustang and my truck before and most times were in no way foreseen so having it just in case was very helpful, especially for a car that could see track duty at small and sometimes un-managed tracks where the driver is on their own and some bandages and quik clot could save their life.... most small offices and classrooms have more stuff in theirs than this Porsche.

Why didn't you open the side panels under hood? Every car I have ever owned had the firing order under the hood including a Toyota! Giant tail light?? It's pretty obvious the corners are the only lights. G is for granny gear. My 1980 280Z had the stopwatch/timer/clock, not that much of an innovation in 1989. Always the worst steering wheel! BEST PORSCHE EVER!!

Isn't it interesting that they achieved 198mph with 444hp and modern cars need 550hp or more to do the same. I thought we were supposed to be becoming more efficient, not less...

The trunk is the cutest teddy bear! The first aid kit is nothing special, all cars in Germany had to have one like that in the 80ies and 90ies by law. Not sure what is required today, it changes a little bit over time. You also need some basic first aid training to get a driver license in Germany.

If you had ever lived in Germany and owned a car while you lived there, you would have known that first aid kits and warning triangles are mandatory items to have in your car. The reason for this is if you are the first on scene of an accident, you have to stop and render aid until emergency services arrive.

Yeah dumbass the first aid kit is designed for accidents in Germany where there is no speed limit on the autobahn so yes it’s overkill because usually if you have an accident on the autobahn you’re dead. A limousine is referring to a normal four-door car in Germany at the time they were only concerned about the first and only market these cars were made for the German market not export markets. Not true S model had passenger side mirrors wouldn’t pass TUV no German manufacturers would do that anyway for a road car. What’s hilarious u think 88 is some pre historic era!!!! Sorry CGT is a complete POS compared to a 959. 959 was a complete car of what Porsche could do a CGT was only about a motor the rest of the car had zero attention or engineering .

Couldn't understand Doug saying Gelände, being German :D By the way, the first aid kits are actually still mandatory in Germany to carry in your car. And it mustn't be older than a few years. So the owner of your 959 would actually have to get new bandages if he takes the car back to Stuttgart ;)

I know a little bit about this car, and the steering wheel is NOT from that era ... At least not from 911 of that era. And yes, it is an ugly wheel ! Incredibly, the 993 had a beautiful steering wheel ...! Many components come from 993, but some are from OLDER models !!! I dont like the shape of the car much, but I accept it is a very iconic model.

Since my childhood, I've had a hard time choosing my all time favorite supercar between this and the Ferrari F40. Now I think it would be a Porsche 959. All those clever bits such as the error beep that works just like what one would still have on a PC motherboard manage to rub my soul the right way. This might just be the supercar with the best crazy to sensible ratio ever.
