Well Porsche hit the race tracks with its vintage make model Porsche 935. It is a symbol for a 70-year-old dream, most likely a bit of everything. The race car’s technology for club-sport events and private training on racetracks is based on the 911 GT2 RS high-performance sports car. The stunning aerodynamics is a completely new development and pays tribute to the Porsche 935, 78 model race car. This Porsche 935 is fans dubbed “Moby Dick” due to its elongated shape, massive fairings and white base color
The head of Porsche Motorsport Dr. Frank said, “This spectacular car is a birthday present from Porsche. Because the car isn’t homologated, engineers and designers didn’t have to follow the usual rules and thus had freedom in the development.”

New Porsche is is 1,909 mm wide with depth of 400 mm, the rear wing lends aerodynamic balance. The aerodynamically capped rims echo those of the 935/78.

The Power Racer
Porsche 935 is 700 horsepower, powered by a state-of-the-art 3.8-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo engine. Car is mainly identical to the high-performance standard unit mounted in the road-legal 911 GT2 RS. Power is transferred to the rear engine via a seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) with rigid gearbox suspension at the 310 mm wide rear axle. Same like the GT road models of the 911, the driver changes gears via conveniently positioned shift paddles on the steering wheel. Typical of the 911, the weight distribution ensures excellent traction and braking performances. It has six-piston aluminum mono-bloc racing calipers on the front axle. They are combined with internally ventilated and grooved steel brake discs with a 380-millimeter diameter provide excellent deceleration values at the front axle. The rear axle is fitted with four-piston calipers and 355-millimeter discs.
The 1,380-kilogram 935 is equipped with PSM (Porsche Stability Management) including traction control as well as an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Thanks to a so-called map switch, these assistance systems can be adjusted separately or switched off completely, depending on the driving situation.
New Porsche 935 comes in 77 models and each cost $817,000. Owners will be given training before they will be delivered in next June.
