At the 2018 Rennsport Reunion at California’s Laguna Seca Raceway, Porsche unveiled a new 935 track vehicle to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary.
It was inspired by the storied 935 that dominated endurance races in the late 1970s and ‘80s in the Special Production Cars Group 5 class.
ENGINE: Twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-6
TOP SPEED: 211 mph (est.)
The second generation 935/19 is based on the 991 GT2 RS, with bodywork reminiscent of the 935/78. This example competed in the 2020 Pike’s Peak race with American driver Jeff Zwart piloting, completing the course in 9:43.92, a then personal best for Zwart.
