Description

This car raced from 1978 through 1987. The car has raced in 72 races, won 2 major international races, 2 IMSA championships and covered well over 70,000 racing miles. This car has more important sports car race history than any other race car. The list of drivers who have driven this car includes Johnny Rutherford, Rick Mears, Bobby Rahal, Brian Redman, Paul Newman, John Fitzpatrick, Bob Garretson and others. In 1983 it won The 12 Hours of Sebring overall, the first time a GTO car accomplished this. It also won the GTO series championship that year.

There are enough body parts to make this car a 930S or a 935. There are considerable other engine and suspension spares, enough to build it as a twin turbo 935 or as it is, a 930S.

Will consider trades including Porsche 996 twin turbo, property on Delaware shore or Sarasota, Florida.

History

This car was originally purchased by D ick Barbour at the end of 1977. It's debut was the 1978 24 hrs of Daytona with Johnny Rutherford, Manfred Shurtl and Barbour driving. It finished 2nd overall.

It was raced under various colors including Apple Computer, Style Auto, and Red Roof Inns. Many famous drivers drove this car to victory: Johnny Rutherford, Rick Mears, Bobby Rahal, Brian Redman, Paul Newman, John Fitzpatrick, Bob Garretson and others.

In 1982 Wayne Baker purchased this 935 and converted it to a 934 and raced it in GTO. In 1983 Wayne won the Sebring 12-hour overall 1st place. The first time that a GTO car had ever won the prestigious event. Wayne won the GTO series championship in 1983.

The car was put in storage at that time. Electrodyne Performance purchased the car in late 1984 after crashing their 934/935 during practice at Riverside Raceway in California. Electrodyne raced it successfully in 1985, 86 and 87. It has been in storage since.
