The newest incarnation of the Porsche 935 was formally unveiled in the fall of 2018 at Laguna Seca Raceway in California during the Rennsport Reunion VI. Timed to coincide with Porsche’s 70th anniversary, it is a modern homage to the original 935 race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans and contributed to Porsche’s dominance in motorsports. With a limited production of just 77 units, the 935/19 was only available to Porsche’s top clients and all order slots were quickly spoken for.
Like its historic predecessor, the 935/19 combines a stunning and aggressive exterior design with cutting edge technology underneath. Based on the 991.2-generation 911 GT2 RS Clubsport, most of the body has been replaced or supplemented with carbon-fiber composite parts. Its 700-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine paired with Porsche’s seven-speed, automated manual PDK gearbox can launch it from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 211 mph.
In profile, the 935/19 resembles the fabled 935/78 long-body derivative of the Seventies, whose massive rear wing earned it the nickname “Moby Dick.” Far from just a style statement, the aggressive bodywork is aerodynamically optimized to improve stability and driving dynamics. Fully FIA-compliant, the 935/19 features an integrated, welded-in roll cage, an escape hatch in the roof, an electrically triggered fire-extinguishing system, and a special Recaro wrap-around racing bucket seat with six-point safety harness and cushions that can be adjusted laterally to accommodate different body sizes. A similarly configured passenger seat was among an extensive list of racing-oriented options.
The interior is trimmed in a combination of carbon-fiber and Alcantara. Air conditioning is standard, along with a central locking system. A semi-circular, quick-release, multi-function steering wheel includes a pit speed-limiter control. Other details borrowed from Porsche’s purest race cars include special LED lighting, rear-view mirrors, aerodynamic wheel covers, and dual exhaust outlets with “cookie-cutter” baffles.
For the 935/19, Porsche offered the option of eight different liveries inspired by those used on historic Porsche racecars. The example offered here, number 50 of 77, is finished in the iconic Gulf Oil livery. Among its notable features are 18-inch center-locking Cup wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes, the Sports Chrono Package, cruise control, and dual-zone climate control. Maintained as part of collector Todd Blue’s significant Porsche collection, it remains in practically new condition, having accrued negligible mileage. Mr. Blue only ever drove the car for approximately four parade laps around Road Atlanta. Please note that a group of spare parts is included with the sale and can be picked up in the Los Angeles area or shipped at the buyer's expense post sale.
Few automobiles of any kind combine the sheer performance, rarity, and excitement of the 935/19. With only a few having come to market since introduction, this example presents a rare opportunity for serious Porsche collectors and skilled track-day enthusiasts, an ideal candidate for its next owner to take to the upcoming Rennsport Reunion.
