    Me too. The 959 is, in my opinion, the best Porsche ever. A close second place on my list is the 1997 Turbo S. <!-- Signature -->

    959 anyday!
     
  4. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    959 would kick ass against a GT2. The 959 has a lower center of gravity, and that 4 wheel drive traction system will do it some good on the launch
     
  5. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    This would waste the 911 GT2, on the drag strip or even on the track.<!-- Signature -->

    959 only because it is more exclusive but the GT2 would spank this car. The 959 was simply the first car evr of it's kind and I have to respect it for that. I know that you can now have 959s in the states because Bill Gates petitioned the government to allow those cars in the US finally, also he did it becuase he wanted a XJ220 along with the 959. Still the first and best of it's kind

    i'd take the GT2, i think the gt2 looks nicer. performance wise, they would be close. GT2 0-60 is 3.6 sec with a top speed of about the same as this car.
     
  10. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    GT2, its faster but on 0 - 60 yaah its 3.6 but the RWD?? makes it hard to get a good launch but with some training it will do + its more fun with RWD there are somethings you cant do with 4WD :p and about topspeed ho cares no one gonna go over 250 KPH and it just 2 KM more!! so GT2, but its a very hard choice. or the best choice of all, 959 then I would sell upgrade my porsche to be like The TechArt GT Street of course adding 80 HP to get it up to 700 BHP!! and still keap the change and buy a 360 Spider heh..<!-- Signature -->

    959 = best car evar machine
     
  12. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    Ok, here's a question: This or the 2003 Dodge Viper SRT/10?
     
  13. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    The 959 is a classic!
     
  14. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    there is no comparision, this is, with the traction control would kill a gt2.
     
  15. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    kurt? are you insane?! who in god's name would chose a viper over one of the greatest cars of all time. I like ferrari's better, but I know a great car when i see one, and the viper doesn't even compare!
     
  16. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    this thing would beat the shit out of a viper, it's lighter, and has that beautiful 4wd system, the viper isn't engineered well, if you try to accelerate fast, you just burn rubber, because the Viper doesn't have enough weight over the wheels, where as Porsche has the best engineers in the world, and they put most of the weight on the wheels, pressing them down, so the car accelerates really #$%#in' fast, try comparing it with an F40, not a viper

    gt2 the 959 is amzing and all but 15 years is a long time. the gt2 would be better on the track due to aerodynamic advances as well as the massive advancements in turbo technology - methinks this would be rather laggy. also u can get ceramic brakes on the gt2. i also prefer the gt2 looks, although this looks awesome, and RWD is more fun than AWD.
     
  18. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    Hmmm. Tough one. When it comes to performance, they're both pretty close; I think I'd take the 959 over the 911GT2, though. The 959 is a more exclusive supercar and was one of the founders that gave the world the term "supercar" in the first place!
     
  19. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    I'd also take the 959.
     
  20. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    I'd also take the 959.
     
  21. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    I'd also take the 959.
     
  22. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    I'd also take the 959.
     
  23. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    959 all the way
     
  24. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    i like GT2 more than 959
    they are both good cars...
     
  25. Re: porsche 959 sport vs. 911 GT2

    can i have both?



    Honestly, the GT-2 is my dream car, i would give body parts for one. The only reason for choosing that over the 959 is i wanna be realistic...heh heh heh...(i built a gt-2 online, it would only cost me $196,000, i could save that much up in about 50 or 60 years, if i live on ramen noodles and tang the entire time...)
