A non-street-legal collector's car built in a series of 77 cars.

Built from the 911 991.2 GT3 R racing car, fitted with the engine and transmission from the 911 991.2 GT2 RS street car and with the bodykit showing some design details from the 1978 Porsche 935/78 "Moby Dick" racing car. The problem: it is not as powerful as the original car with smaller engine (then 3.2L, now 3.8L) and it is much heavier, so the power-to-weight ratio on the original car 40 years earlier was a whopping 58% better.

Like a racing car, it has just the driver's seat, but the passenger's seat is optionally available. Brake discs have the size of 380 mm in front and 355 mm on rear axle. The safety cage is welded in, there's the air jack system, the fire extinguishing system with electronic release unit and the 115-litre FT3 safety fuel cell.

2019 Porsche Motorsport GT2 Supersportscar Weekend at Spa-Francorchamps

Held on July 26 and 27, 2019, the “Porsche Motorsport GT2 Supersportscar Weekend” was a one-off event. After practising on July 25, the 15 seven hundred hp cars (3x 935 + 12x 991 GT2 RS CS) had the chance for 30-minute races on both days, just before the 2019 Spa 24 hour race held on July 27-28. Among the 15 drivers were two Le Mans GTE-Am class winners, Egidio Perfetti and Christian Ried. On Friday, Perfetti crossed the finish line in first place in his 935 ahead of Jan-Erik Slooten and Klaus Abbelen in their 991 GT2 RS racing cars. On Saturday, Perfetti won again with Slooten second again. Third place went to Christian Ried (GT2 RS CS).
