When is a race car art? When it breaks boundaries on the race track? When it features breathtaking design? When it is a symbol for a 70-year-old dream? Most likely a bit of everything. Most certainly, when sheer fascination makes it the main exhibit of your very own exposition. The new Porsche 935.
The new 935
The race car’s technology for clubsport events and private trainings on racetracks is based on the 911 GT2 RS* high-performance sports car. The spectacular aerodynamics is a completely new development and pays tribute to the Porsche 935/78 Le Mans race car, which fans dubbed “Moby Dick” due to its elongated shape, massive fairings and white base colour.
Many details of the exterior are a salute to winning vehicles from the company’s motor racing history: The aerodynamically capped rims echo those of the 935/78, with the LED rear lights on the rear wing endplates adopted from the 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car. The side mirrors hail from the current Le Mans-winning 911 RSR, with the exposed titanium tailpipes modelled on the Porsche 908 from 1968.
The new 935 is powered by a state-of-the-art 3.8-litre six-cylinder twin-turbo engine, which is largely identical to the high-performance standard unit mounted in the road-legal 911 GT2 RS*.
A spectacular car as a birthday present from Porsche Motorsport to the fans all over the world.
