Porsche revives the legendary 935


#1

In 1976, Porsche introduced the 935, a homologation version of the 911 turbo. Porsche’s new racer dominated FIA sports car racing in the late-’70s. Over the next decade the 935 experienced some aerodynamic changes, including the installation of a massive whale-tail in ’78, which earned it the affectionate nickname “Moby Dick.” By the early 1980s the FIA sanctions were more successful in killing “Moby Dick” than Captain Ahab, and in 1984 the 935 won its last major race.
