The 2019 Porsche 935 is based on the popular 935/78 LM race car from the 1970s which was, given the name ‘Moby Dick’ due to its exterior shape and design – most notably the ‘whale tail’. This reimagined version certainly pays homage to those distinct characteristics, while also serving as the benefactor of modern performance technologies.
At the heart of the car is something from more recent memory – the same 3.8L twin-turbocharged flat-six used in the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2RS. The engine itself remains virtually unchanged for the 935, continuing to produce 700-horsepower to the rear wheels via a 7-speed PDK transmission.
