Check Out This Apple-Inspired 1979 Porsche 935 Tribute Racecar

Porsche enthusiasts over at PCarMarket have just shared a custom-built Porsche 935 tribute racecar finished in a vintage Apple Computers-inspired livery. This Porsche was previously converted to 993 GT2 specifications before enjoying a highly successful racing career in Southern California.

Built upon the shell of 1969 912, this Apple-inspired Porsche was purchased by the current owner in 2016 who carried out a complete 935 K3 body conversion using accurate molds created from the original 935 racecars. With a twin-turbocharged 3.8 L flat-six engine rated at over 700HP, this tribute is fully equipped to take on the track.

This racecar has been outfitted with an air-cooled 3.8 L twin-turbocharged flat-six 993 engine which was custom built by Bob Holcomb.  Approximately 700 HP is delivered to the rear wheels by way of a GT2-spec 6-speed manual transmission.

“Upon the current owner’s purchase in 2016, the retrofitted GT2-style body components were removed in favor of a fiberglass molded 935 K3 body kit from GT935.  A custom Apple Computers inspired livery was then applied making this car an absolute stand-out on the track.  A lightweight carbon fiber roof panel was installed, and the wheel hubs were also converted to center lock in order to accommodate quicker changes of the 18” BBS wheels.”

The Porsche is being sold on a Bill of Sale by its seller out of Florida. Here’s a small video clip for you to enjoy the roar of its 3.8 L twin-turbocharged engine.
