Porsche’s New ‘Moby Dick’ 935 Clubsport Looks Spectacular In The Flesh

Porsche surprised its fans (and everyone else) with the new 935 Clubsport, which was revealed during Rennsport Reunion in California.

The new track warrior pays homage to the classic 935/78 race car which is also known as the Moby Dick, thanks to its extended curvy bodywork that resembles the shape of a whale. The new 935’s bodywork is made almost in its entirety out of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), which helps keep the weight down to 3,042 lbs (1,380 kg)

The chassis is based on that of the current 911 GT2 RS, including the powertrain; that means that a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine hangs out in the back producing 690hp (700PS). A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with rigid mounts is tasked with sending the power to the rear axle via a limited-slip differential optimized for racing.

The new extended body means that the 935 is now 191.5 inches (4,865 mm) long, 80 inches (2,034 mm) wide and 53.5 inches (1,359 mm) tall. That’s 12.4 inches (316 mm) longer than the standard GT2 RS.

The wheels are plain gorgeous, featuring the classic aerodynamically enhanced design that was also present in the original 935, while the LED lights come straight from the 919 Hybrid LMP1. Finally, the exposed titanium tailpipes are modelled on those from the 1968 908.

Porsche will make just 77 units of the new 935, which won’t be eligible for driving on public roads. Pricing in Europe has been set at 701,948 euros (around $815k in current exchange rates) plus the country-specific taxes. The new 935 will be imported in the USA by Porsche Motorsport North America of Carson, California, with an official U.S. pricing to be announced on a later date. First deliveries are expected to begin in June 2019.
