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.
The event in Daytona, USA in 1979 was considered to be so tough that one attendee who witnessed the race said "turbo cars were laying all over the pits, like pop-corns".
Frederick Woodruff Field who founded a movie company called Insterscope Communications also had interest in racing and so started sponsoring teams. His team called Insterscope fielded this car with him, Danny Ongais and Hurley Haywood in the driver’s seat. Eventually after some drama including a failed turbocharger, this car finally won the race.
