Porsche 959 Rally

The Porsche presented the 959. It seems that the model is capable of adapting to the driving conditions by regulating ground clearance and shock absorption. These are possible thanks to its electronically controlled all-wheel-drive and complex understructure technology. Also, the front axle of the 959 is driven through a controlled longitudinal clutch from the back axle and the upper limit of the front axle driving torque was verified via the longitudinal clutch. This way over selective levers different programs were activated adjusting the power distribution according to road conditions. These technologies the 959 is equipped with, gave it an advantage that actually helped it win in the hot desert sand.
