As Porsche continues to celebrate their 70th year, they recently unveiled their 2019 Porsche 935 Race Car. The 935 isn’t street legal by any stretch of the imagination, but even police officers would be slow—no pun intended—to pull over this beauty.
The 935 uses the GT2 RS as its base and builds on that already powerful 911. The body keeps the sleek, curvy, aerodynamic lines that Porsche is known for. The front is a bit wider and lower than that base 911, and the stock round headlights have also been set aside. Just like the front end, the back end is also longer and wider, with a tall wing to additional downforce. LED lights similar to the Le Mans winning 919 have been added, though the 935 doesn’t need any help attracting attention.
The 935 has a 3.8 litre flat-six twin-turbocharged engine capable of 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The car is largely carbon fiber, so all that power goes to speed rather than to compensate for extra weight. The engine mates with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. While no specifics on performance have been released, you might be able to extrapolate from the 911 GT2 RS performance, which can hit 0-100 in just 2.7 seconds.
Porsche is reporting that they will only build 77 examples of the 935, with each priced at approximately USD$816,000.
