The Porsche 935

The Porsche 935 is a racing car produced from 1976 to 1981 based on the Porsche 930. The car, designed in accordance with the FIA Group 5 regulations, was raced by the works team in the one-make world championship from 1976 to 1978. From 1977 to 1982, private teams entered the race car in the World One-Make Championship and the 1st Division of the German Racing Championship (DRM). The 935 competed in the North American IMSA GT racing series from 1977 to 1986.

From 1976 to 1979, Porsche won the manufacturers' world championship with this car four years in a row. In the DRM, Rolf Stommelen won the championship title in 1977 and Klaus Ludwig in 1979 in a Porsche 935. At Le Mans, the racing car won the 24-hour race in 1979 and in the IMSA GT series, Porsche secured the brand title with the 935 in the GTX and GTP classes from 1978 to 1982. This makes the Porsche 935 one of the most successful racing cars to this day.

Details I 

This 935 was completed in 1982 and received a purebred tubular frame, similar to its competitor 935/78 "Moby Dick". The unique and very massive looking body was designed by Lee Dykstra in Georgia and produced by Dave Klym's company FABCAR. The design followed the trend of the time in Formula 1 and Group C and included a so-called VENTURI tunnel, which made it possible to give the car more grip at higher speeds.

Detail II

JLP4 celebrated his debut on the race track directly with several victories and was a whole three seconds faster than his team mate JLP3 - an absolutely impressive lead! During a later test run on the "500 Mile Road of Atlanta" track, the car lost its rear wing and had to abandon the race damaged. Just in time for the season finale in Daytona 1983, the car was ready for action again and could start to the delight of the owner. For more on this unique sports car, we look forward to your call or e-mail!
