1979 Porsche 935 Racecar Tribute

We are pleased to present this custom-built Porsche 935 tribute racecar finished in a vintage Apple Computers inspired livery.  Built upon the shell of a 1969 912, this Porsche had been previously converted to 993 GT2 specifications before enjoying a highly successful racing career in Southern California which included a victory at the inaugural Tribute to Le Mans race at Willow Springs.  This racecar was then purchased by the current owner in 2016 who carried out a complete 935 K3 body conversion using accurate molds created from the original 935 racecars.  With a twin-turbocharged 3.8 L flat-six engine rated at over 700HP, this tribute is fully equipped to take on the track and represents a very special opportunity for any Porsche motorsports enthusiast.

Upon the current owner’s purchase in 2016, the retrofitted GT2-style body components were removed in favor of a fiberglass molded 935 K3 body kit from GT935.  A custom Apple Computers inspired livery was then applied making this car an absolute stand-out on the track.  A lightweight carbon fiber roof panel was installed, and the wheel hubs were also converted to center lock in order to accommodate quicker changes of the 18” BBS wheels.  The exterior finish is noted to be in great shape with approximately 1 hour of use on the new body.

Inside, this 935 features a stripped-out lightweight racing interior with OMP WRC-XL carbon fiber bucket seats installed in 2017.  Other noteworthy modifications include a custom roll cage, fire suppression system, carbon fiber dashboard, Redstone Performance custom shifter, Tilton pedals and a MOMO quick-release steering wheel as well as a boost and fuel controller.  New racing safety equipment was also installed under the current ownership including OMP 6-point harnesses, a fire extinguisher and 27-gallon Fuel Safe.

This racecar has been outfitted with an air-cooled 3.8 L twin-turbocharged flat-six 993 engine which was custom built by Bob Holcomb.  Approximately 700 HP is delivered to the rear wheels by way of a GT2-spec 6-speed manual transmission which was refreshed by 911 Design about 20 hours ago along with the engine.  A 993 double wishbone rear suspension has been retrofitted along with ERP 935-style front suspension and JRZ double adjustable dampers.  Stopping power comes from robust Brembo brakes with new Pagid brake pads.  Other performance upgrades include:

  • Carrillo Rods
  • Mahle Pistons
  • Updated Turbos with Internal Waste Gates
  • Holcomb EFI with Zytec Engine Management
  • Mode Intercooler
  • S-Car-Go Billet Engine Mounts
  • Redstone Oil Tank
  • 935-style Oil Cooler ($8500+)
  • Porsche Motorsport Air Jacks
  • Lightweight Dry Cell Battery

This car is eligible for a verity of vintage racing series including: SVRA, HSR, SCCA, as well as track and DE events.  Reported to be highly competitive and in excellent running order, this 935 is just waiting to get out on the track.

Offering blistering performance and legendary Porsche 935 styling, this beautifully executed tribute is not to be missed. It is being sold on a Bill of Sale by its seller out of Florida.
