2000 Porsche 996 GT3 Mk1

Dear Santa.........


Open Youtube Page


Porsche has unveiled the new 935 on the occasion of the historic “Rennsport Reunion” motorsport event at Laguna Seca Raceway in California. The 515 kW (700 hp) racer featuring a body reminiscent of the legendary Porsche 935/78 will be produced in a limited number of 77 units.

“This spectacular car is a birthday present from Porsche Motorsport to fans all over the world,” says Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars. “Because the car isn’t homologated, engineers and designers didn’t have to follow the usual rules and thus had freedom in the development.”

Wow Spike Feresten was correct when he said they were making a new slant nose 911... never thought it would be a new 935.

Limited-run 935 Le Mans tribute built to commemorate 70 years of Porsche sports cars

Porsche has revealed a limited-run celebration model inspired by the classic 935 Le Mans racer, to celebrate the firm’s 70th birthday. Limited to just 77 units, the retro-styled single-seater is based on the current-generation 911 GT2 RS.

A modern reinterpretation of the 1970s ‘Moby Dick’ Le Mans race car, the new 935 gets a similarly elongated shape, aggressive aero, and a striking white and black paint job.

Featuring a body reminiscent of the Porsche 935/78 from the seventies, the firm’s latest offering is made mostly from carbon fibre. The car measures 4.87m long and 2.03m wide, while the rear wing is 1.9m wide and 40cm deep. The car weighs 1,380kg.

It uses the 692bhp 3.8-litre water-cooled six-cylinder twin-turbo engine from the GT2 RS, as well as that car’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox. It also gets a race-optimised limited-slip differential and a dual mass flywheel.

The new 935 features MacPherson struts at the front and a lightweight multi-link suspension set-up at the rear. Every car gets electromechanical power steering with a variable rack, as well as 380mm (front) and 355mm (rear) brakes.

Like the GT2 RS, all 935 tribute cars feature PSM (Porsche Stability Management) as standard. This allows the driver to switch the car’s drive modes, altering the sensitivity of the traction control and anti-lock braking system.

Inside, the new 935 continues its modern-edged retro theme. The gear lever gets a laminated wood design like the legendary 917 race car. The carbon steering wheel and digital cockpit is more contemporary, however; lifted from the 2019 GT3 R. The cabin is completed with a thick roll cage, racing bucket seat and six-point harnesses.

Limited to just 77 units, each Porsche 935 tribute will cost €701,948 (around £625,000). First deliveries are due in June 2019.

WOW! Now that's what I call a serious pice of kit - I was totally hooked, right up to the mention of a Dual Mass Flywheel nooo Grin

Seriously tho': Even though most mortals will never get the chance to own one, in this day and age £625k actually sounds like quite good value...

Wow! Surprised

A brilliant take on an icon. Pity most will end up in the hands of flippers and investors.

Awesome thing. There are some very lucky people in this world, who get to own things like these. Cool

2010 Porsche 997 GT3

PostPosted: Fri Sep 28, 2018 9:12 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

I am really struggling to understand all of the love being thrown at this around social media. If I'd seen it without the official launch and press release I would have assumed that Leepu had a new series coming up soon.

To my eye it is a bit of a mess and its only purpose appears to be as a bauble for collectors to lock up in their automotive vaults. If you want a track only Porsche then frankly they have a full range of proper racing cars that are somewhat better value for money - you can get a full fat GT3R with enough change to buy a Cup car for that so after the initial media storm : what is it for?

There: I've said it... nooo

Agree Agree Agree Agree

It looks really awkward, like the rear wheels should have been placed a few feet back. The interior is nice though - wonder if that kit could be back-ported to the 996 and 997's Laughing

The motoring journalists will get hold of one at some point, they will likely send one up the hill at Goodwood and I wouldn't rule out some owners putting them on a couple of exclusive track days. So some. But lets face it - plenty of them are unlikely ever to make it off of delivery miles.

Put it this way - how many GT2RSs are trailered to the track and ran on slicks? Now triple the price and reduce the available number from 1000 to 77 - how many would you expect to see now. Consider that everyone who gets one of these "935"s probably already has a 918 and a GT2RS too. The more committed drivers may own a Cup, GT3R and/or vintage racing machinery as well. Even if a few are used in anger, the novelty is surely going to wear off pretty quickly?

Collectors item. nooo

A great shame if none of them get used as they should be - I admire Nick Mason for actually using his 250 GTO despite what it's worth - Top man Thumb

I'm sure you will all be familiar with this video but if I had the necessary funds I'd definitely want a 935 Kremer K3 repro like this one:
