A few days on since Porsche first revealed its delicious new 935, we’re still a little stunned. Yes, it’s almost surprising it’s taken Stuttgart this long to come up with something like this 911 GT2 RS-based beast, but the car still came as a shock last week.
It looks superb in its Martini-esque livery, but as we’re finding out from this Monza-shot testing footage, it looks pretty damn good without a livery too. How menacing does this test car look in matte black? It sounds suitably mean too.
Under its retro-inspired carbon composite body panels, it’s mechanically unchanged from the standard RS, meaning you have a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six mounted up back producing 690bhp. It sends its angry thrust to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch ‘PDK’ automatic gearbox.
It’s 300mm longer than a stock GT2 RS and is littered with parts from contemporary Porsche racing cars, including rear wing endplates from a 919 LMP1 machine, wing mirrors donated by the 911 RSR programme, and a carbonfibre steering wheel plus digital instrument cluster usually found on a 911 GT3 R.
Just 77 will be made, each costing €701,948 plus local taxes. We imagine they’re all spoken for.
