@Fangio Man: Not to my recollection, but it does make sense, the Ferrari 288 GTO was in production at around the same time the Porsche 959 and this was all Ferrari had to compete against the 959 until the F40 went into production in 1987.

Everyone usually does "F40 vs. 959". If I could have one.....I'd take the 288GTO.

I wonder these two cars have never been compared to each other before.

I just thought this would be an interesting comparison, I knew the Porsche 959 would win.
