This Prototype Porsche 959 Is A Thing Of Beauty

The Porsche 959 is one of the most legendary cars to ever hit the street or the track. It changed the supercar game forever and redefined what a Porsche could do. Now, you can go inside one of the first ones ever built.

This beautifully shot video showcases the prototype 959 personally owned by Helmuth Bott, head of R&D at Porsche at the time the car was created.


With some of the earliest uses of all-wheel drive, sequential turbocharging, and an aluminum/kevlar bodyshell in a supercar, the piece by eGarage explains the challenges of creating a car that was way ahead of its time.

Bott's 959 resides at the Brumos Collection, where it shows off its fantastic checkered seats.
