Default Video showing some of the features of the Porsche 959

These guys do a lot of videos on specific cars and manufacture history. They do show a lot of features of the car, how they came about, and so on. The dude in the videos is VERY over the top. Some jokes land and others are duds. But I still learn stuff in almost every video.

Anyways, today they launched one about the Porche 959. They only made 292 of these cars. They were not even sold here in the USA. But these were factory supercars that were set to go offroad racing in rally events. Even doing the grueling Dakar Rally. I had no idea it had an adjustable ride height. Such a cool car for it's time. Anyways...

Can thank Bill Gates for being able to import them to the US. He bought one and couldn't get it in for 13 years until the Show and Display rule came into place in 1999 that he helped make.

They touch on that in the video. Cool that the law opened the door for other cars to be able to come into the country.
