Carbon-Bodied Porsche 935 Racer Looks Amazing

For Sale / Comments

It's double the price of what a new 935 was worth, though.

The Porsche 935 is a very special machine. First launched in the 1970s, Porsche recently revived the legendary 935 racer in modern form - this version was based on the hardcore 991-generation GT2 RS.

Now, Hollmann International has listed a carbon fiber version of the 935 at a price of 1,450,000 euros (about $1.73 million at current exchange rates). It's a lot of money but considering what has been done to this 935, it might just be worth it. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) has been used for the bodywork and is fully exposed to create perhaps the most visually arresting interpretation of the 935 ever.

Consider, for instance, that an aftermarket carbon fiber kit for a Corvette, with little more than side skirts and a front splitter,goes for around $6,000, and that puts into perspective the 935's completely exposed carbon body. CFRP has also been used for the roof and the rear wing, which is said to be adopted from the 911 GT3 RS.

The carbon body and lightweight hybrid aluminum-steel chassis allegedly combine for a total weight of just over 3,000 pounds, so this 935 must be a rocket as it uses a 690-horsepower 3.8-liter engine. Inside, there is a fully integrated roll cage and a single Recaro race bucket seat with a six-point safety harness.

The interior truly looks like something out of a video game with its digital driver's display, liberal use of even more carbon fiber, Alcantara trim, and the multi-colored buttons dotted everywhere.

The gear shift knob is fashioned from milled laminated wood and provides access to the quick-shifting PDK seven-speed transmission. While everything about the interior screams racing, you do at least get an air conditioning system.

Although it's about double the price of what a new 935 was worth in 2018, this carbon extravaganza looks like nothing else on the road (sorry, the track) and is as sensational to look at as it likely is to drive.
