Re: Did I see a real 959 or a fake?

Ive seen many conversions from a 993 to a 959.

Wow. Not a post in this forum for over 5 months... Anyways, I found out recently that Bill Gates bought a 959 and the Govt. said he couldnt drive it on the road (due to Porsche not wanting to give 4 to the Govt. to crash test), but he got his top programmers and comuter people to make a virtual crash test and the Govt. accepted it and now its legal in the US.

Re: Did I see a real 959 or a fake?

if that 959 you saw was guards red, then i too have seen it. I was taking a drive on highway 9 (up here in Nor Cal) when i saw what appeared to be the tail section of a 959. Sure enough, it was a 959. I had my N/A 944 at the time, so i followed him as best i could, but when he hit a straight stretch of road, that baby took off like a rocket!! I don't think i'll ever see one again...
