The Porsche 959 was released on July 26th 2011 as part of the Need for Speed World 1-Year Anniversary celebrations.

It was first announced with a "Create-A-Porsche 959 Contest" that this car will be released with the game's official launch, but was revealed for the 1-Year anniversary. It got delayed because, according to Ask Marc 41, they got their license to use the car approved on June/July 2011.

Since the 959 was released on the anniversary week, a Year One Special Edition of the car was released, and was also known that a 1-day rental of the car given to the community went terribly wrong, as people who used it got the car permanently. It was later fixed, and people who hadn't claimed it were given a 7 day rental instead. The players who got the permanent car from the 'rental' code could keep the car.


The development of the Porsche 959 started in 1982 as a prototype for the Rally Dakar then known as the 911 SC 4x4.

The production Porsche 959 was then announced at the 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show, with the 200 units needed for Group-B homologation already ordered. The car is best known for being the first production car ever to reach 300 km/h. The car was built between 1986 and 1988; 292 Porsche 959s were built, 113 in 1987 and 179 in 1988.

Overall Performance

Achievable Classes
TuningSection Class E TuningSection Class D TuningSection Class C TuningSection Class B Class A Class S
The Porsche 959 has a stock top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph) for Class A. The acceleration is decent but not enough to beat other cars of its class. Its nitrous output is good but lacking. The handling is good and responsive, however, it can oversteer very easily.

For Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape the 959 may not be a good choice mainly because of its very light weight. The car can dodge heavy police vehicles very well because of its responsive steering. However, it is the only advantage that it has because it cannot take head-on collisions and go through road blocks very well because of its light weight.
