Porsche purists can recall the wrath of the legendary 935 back in the 70s and 80s. The track-only car was famous for terrorizing the racetracks but was never street-legal. Except for this one.
Shaping it as a Speciale, Porsche built one model for the street, exclusively for legendary Formula One team owner Walter Wolf. Now, decades later, the ‘Moby Dick’ from Germany is now on sale and marks a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Porsche aficionados.
The car's wizardry comes from a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six that engine puts out 740 ponies.
According to a sale listing that was posted on German website Mechatronik.de, Germany based Kremer Racing accepted the order to build Wolf’s street-legal Porsche 935. However, instead of a lookalike car, the company birthed a phenomenal 935 that was 98 percent identical to the one that won the 24 Le Mans in 1979. This makes it a modified version of the Porsche 935 Kremer K3.
The car’s wizardry comes from a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six that engine puts out 740 ponies, which is a bit detuned from the original race car. The engine is mated to a four-speed manual transmission that uses the Le Mans racer’s gear ratios.
Adding to the achingly-beautiful aesthetics, are the dark blue leather seats with contrasting red piping.
A quick glance at the car and you can see that the bodywork closely resembles the race car with Kevlar panels that only differ where Kremer installed blinkers and side markers to make it a bit more practical.
Inside the cabin, Kremer designed a special speedometer for Wolf and added a leather interior, while borrowing some more parts from a 930-generation 911 Turbo. Adding to the achingly-beautiful aesthetics are the dark blue leather seats with contrasting red piping.
Back in 1980, Wolf paid $800,000 for the Kremer K3, which can easily translate to $2.4 million in 2018. The current price tag varies upon request. However, we expect nothing less than $2.4 million for the beauty. It should be, however, noted that this car was a street legal moniker only in Germany.
