Coming out as the next prototype version of the Carrera RSR 2.1 Turbo, the Porsche 935 was a car that was specifically made to be raced. And this strategy for Porsche worked.
Designed by Norbert Singer, this newly developed model was supplied to all the racing teams in large numbers and soon it was one Porsche 935 up against another Porsche made 935, be it at the German Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft (DRM) races, Le Mans, Sebring, Daytona or at the IMSA GT Championships. Out of the 350 plus races that this model participated in, this car won nearly 125 of them.
At the 23rd edition of the Nuerburgring (Nürburgring) 1000 km race held on 29th May, 1977 a total of 57 cars participated in the race. A Porsche 935/77 sponsored by the Gelo racing Team & George Loos KG and driven by Germans Rolf Stommelen, Tim Schenken and Toine Hezemans, came first.
