    1979 Porsche 935. Iconic Apple Livery. $299,000

    GT935-101 is a purpose built track weapon. Visually it’s a 935 K3. Inside it actually has many GT2 components such as a 3.8 TT built by Bob Holcomb, GT2 6 speed transmission and the complete double wish-bone 993 rear suspension module was expertly grafted into the 911 tub.

    The engine puts more than 700 Hp at 1.2 bar, so there is no shortage of power. The car is very compliant and well balanced, the 3.8 TT will nail you to the seat while you’re pushing on the loud pedal. The braking is equally as impressive with the car being very stable under all braking conditions. Top speed is estimated over 200 MPH. This is a serious car.

    Perfect for SVRA, HSR, SCCA, as well as track and DE days. Saddle up with the right team and this car will be competitive at the Daytona Classic 24.

    If this was sponsored by Apple in period you might want to post this on some Apple sites like MacRumors.com. There are Apple collectors out there that will buy all sorts of related memorobilia.

    Thanks for the question. Prior to the conversion, to 935 in 2018, this car was a very successful POC club car for 20 years.

    That is correct and one of the reasons that we decided to go with the Apple livery, since it doesn't exist anymore. Adam broke the record when he bought that car, paying nearly $5 million (with fees) because it was one driven by Paul Newman.

    I guess I should be flattered, since I’m the one who created this livery for the Apple Car, back in 1979....

    (hmmm, I wonder how long copyrights remain valid....):cool:

    Is this an original Apple Computer sponsor car from 1979? Or is it just decorated that way...

    +1, not to derail this thread. This is an awesome car, I am no expert but I believe its safe to say this is definitely one of those and could not be duplicated for the asking price.

    Another sponsorship pitch, when they heard the Apple Car was 'going down the road'.....done overnight to catch Steve & ACM before they flew off to NYC.

    My original team jacket; well used! Post-2000 I had a collection of the entire team: Steve, ACM, me, Dick, Bob, Bobby, Allan, Anderson bros., even one for Fitz.
    All lost (disappeared?) by some turkey at the Silicon Valley Tech Museum when I shipped 3 crates of Apple promo gear.....:(

    Post-race testing @ Riverside....(me driving!!!) [the perks of being the sponsors rep, you can twist some arms!]
    Looks pretty fast eh? It's probably all of 100 mph :p Immediately after this Bobby drove & I clung tightly to the cage......I think I saw 7000 rpms in 4th the one time I opened my eyes :eek:

    Common confusion due to the way the Ad and original post is drafted. :) Nice looking 935 replica; like the GT40 replica the Origianl Poster has for sale here also.

    Nice looking vehicles. :)

    Some more interesting info about this car. In 1979 Kremer introduced the K3 bodywork for the 935 and Barbour Racing was the first team to bring it to and race it in the US. At that time, they figured the race cars would, at some point sustain damage, so they made a set of molds off the first car, so they could make their own parts. We own those original Barbour molds, and this car was made with body panels from those orignal molds, making it real 935 K3 bodywork. We also sell the body pieces separately for anyone wanting to build their own 935 project.
