Porsche is one of the greatest sports car manufacturers. The German car manufacturer also has a great legacy and they are taking advantage of that.

Back in the 80’s, the Porsche 959 supercar was built and during its era (1986 to 1993) it managed to revolutionize the world of sportscars. Under the hood of the model is a twin-turbo flat six unit rated at 444 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. This amount of power was sent to the ground via an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system.

Thanks to these characteristics, the car was signed on in the Paris-Dakar rally in 1986 and it managed to finish first and second.
