Stuttgart cel­e­brates 911 and 959 Paris-Dakar vic­to­ries

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - OUT & ABOUT -

This year’s event seemed to lack much in the way of theatre com­pared to pre­vi­ous Retro Clas­sics shows but Porsche man­aged to stand out from the crowd with its stun­ning set mock-up of the Paris-Dakar Rally. The dis­play show­cased its 1984 (911) and 1986 (959) winning cars. In a show crammed with pol­ished metal both of th­ese rac­ing ma­chines still dis­played signs of wear and tear from their heroic cham­pi­onship ef­forts years ago, adding to the at­mos­phere of Porsche’s ded­i­cated desert-style stage.
