Watch The Retro-Inspired Porsche 935 Tackle The Race Track
Porsche celebrated its 70th anniversary two years ago with a limited edition model called 935. The German automaker only planned to produce 77 of them, so catching one of these rare whales in public is like finding a clover. four leaves, even if under the wild body is a tuned 911 GT2 RS. This does not make the visit less exciting, and catching one in its natural habitat is essential. This is why we are grateful for this short video which shows the 935 running the Circuit Zolder in Belgium.
The wild design of the 935 pays homage to a former Porsche racing star nicknamed “Moby Dick,” a long-tailed racing car from the late 1970s. However, the extra physical work did not turn the racer into a giant swollen. Porsche maintained its weight at 3,043 pounds (1,378 kilograms) while increasing the power of the 3.8-liter six-cylinder flat twin turbocharged engine, making 700 horsepower (521 kilowatts). It pairs with a seven-speed Porsche PDK transmission.
While it’s exciting to see the 935 on the track with other cars, the driver doesn’t punish it too hard in traffic. The noisy exhaust always eagerly bursts from the exhaust pipes inspired by the Porsche 908, and it also looks like a real racing car. It comes with a single seat, a passenger seat being optional, which seems to be the route taken by this owner. And it’s not like Porsche takes away all creature comfort – it always comes with air conditioning.
Limited edition Porsche models are nothing new, but spotting them in the wild is always fun. We know how often high-end, limited-production supercars are hidden in an air-conditioned garage, and there’s nothing wrong with that, although it’s nice to see these machines do what they do. better: driving. Taking the 935 on the track and possibly rubbing paint with competitors seems scary, especially with its price of € 700,000
