1 of 77, One Owner, Interscope Racing Livery, Never Tracked
This is not a consignment vehicle. We own it. Inspections
Officially unveiled in September 2018 at Rennsport Reunion VI at
Laguna Seca, California, the 2019 Porsche 935 was immediately
lauded as a stylistic, aerodynamic, and technological tour de
force. The new car was based on the 911 GT2 RS mechanicals, and
begins with a lightweight tub cloaked in carbon reinforced plastic
bodywork. Its spectacular, modern aerodynamic shape and massive
rear wing create downforce, cool brakes, and extract hot air, while
unmistakably paying tribute to the Porsche 935/78 "Moby Dick."
Its sparsely trimmed carbon fiber cabin features a fully integrated
roll cage, fire suppression system, a single wraparound Recaro
racing seat, and six-point racing harness. The driver monitors and
controls Porsche Stability Management, ABS, traction control, TPMS,
and even a pit-speed limiter through the CFK multifunction steering
wheel and instrument cluster sourced from the GT3 R. The only real
creature comfort is air-conditioning.
For power, the 935 relies upon an uprated 700 hp, 3.8-liter
twin-turbocharged, flat-six engine and solid mounted seven-speed
Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox from the GT2 RS to drive an
electronically adjustable, limited-slip differential optimized for
the racetrack. Reaching 0-60 in 2.3 seconds, its top speed is 211
mph. Braking is accomplished through four-wheel, six-piston
aluminum monobloc calipers, and 380/355 mm ventilated steel
Porsche built just 77 of the 935s. With delivered prices in the
$1,000,000 range, applications to purchase a car were carefully
evaluated, and the lucky recipients were hand selected. There was
no configurator for the 935. Details and specifications were
discussed directly with Porsche by telephone or email.
This car is no. 49 of 77, and was purchased new by a noted American
Porsche collector and owner of some of Porsche's most important
competition models - including an original RSR, 934, 934/5, and an
original 935. It was specified in the dramatic black, red, orange,
and pink livery of Ted Field's famous Interscope Racing team.
Interscope enjoyed great success with the original 935, including
an overall win at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1979, piloted by
Fields, Danny Ongais, and Hurley Haywood - the winningest driver in
Daytona 24 Hour history. Today, the car remains in pristine,
as-delivered condition, having never been raced or tracked. Even
the tie-down transport lugs remain in place. The car retains its
factory-placed warning stickers and protective wrappings, and is
accompanied by a large pallet (and expensive option) of spares from
Porsche, including BBS wheels, brake rotors, and cases of
Porsche created a true masterpiece with the 70th anniversary 935.
Free from rules and encumbrances of road laws or racing series, its
designers and engineers were free to create the finest pure race
car possible. This is an extraordinarily rare opportunity to
acquire a like-new, as-delivered example of what will most
assuredly become a Porsche legend.
