    Okay, I have to admit, I didn't expect this.


    Not complaining though, even if technically the 2017 CTR is lighter

    Looks like it’s compliant with a bunch of FIA regs. Somebody send that thing GT racing!

    Did not expect to see a re-born 935. This is one of the wildest cars I've ever seen. Get this into GT Sport NOW.

    The cynic in me wants to call this a shrewd cash-in on a historic name, a limited run that will almost surely spend the majority of its life locked away from not only tracks, but people.

    But the other part of me is calling the cynic a whiney baby, and screaming "just look at it!"

    This car looks completely bonkers but I love it. Hopefully there will be more liveries if these go racing!

    I think they will be track toys with optional Martini livery; an insider said he saw one months ago that was black with the current livery revealed.

    When I first saw it I thought it was just some artist's interpretation of a modern 935, not an actual car!

    It says the taillights are from the 919 lmp1 hybrid, but it looks like they are actually from the 918 spyder?

    I'm also excited to see this car in a game, but at the same time dreading that the only game it'll be in is a mobile drag racing game.

    The cost, €701,948, is a reference to the founding year of Porsche (1948). I like it.

    What a fabulous thing. Some of the styling details are sublime.

    I love Porsche, they have giving us some truly awesome beautiful cars over the years... But I look at this and can't help thinking... Mehhh

    As I look at this it makes me think someone found the slightly younger brother of the 935, who shared in the glory of his older brother. Going to the same after parties, and living it up over the years. Now after 4 decades of smoking, boozing and throwing caution to the wind, has decided to squeeze into his brothers racing overalls and head out to the track to try and emulate what was done before him!

    I will no doubt get some flak, but
    honestly, its just not doing it for me!

    Wow! I clicked through expecting this to be some sort of aftermarket conversion, but to see this sort of thing straight out of Porsche's own stable is something else!

    Also worth noting that this would be the perfect alt-mode for Jazz in a GM-free Transformers reboot!

    Nice. A modern day Moby Dick 935/78 :tup:

    I'll take mine in a Momo livery please.

    I, for one, welcome the ultimate 911.

    It would be a big shame if this thing really won't participate in motorsport. Keeping it off both streets and competition is a big waste of a fine automobile. Hopefully at least one of these things will receive similar treatment to this Vulcan's later on.

    With no road legal homologation it's options in motorsport would be limited to some of the less high profile options I guess. Plus.. y'know, collectors, investors and speculators might not want to get them dirty.

    This was unexpected. I am more of a 934 fan myself, but the 935 is the famous "Moby Dick". And they haven't done a flat-nose thing in ages.

    I do like the wheels mimicking the originals. Shoulda elongated the nose too! :lol:

    That’s what I’m worried about. It seems like mobile games always beat everyone to the punch when it comes to new cars. With a car like this, I think everyone should be able to drive it. Let’s hope that there aren’t any exclusive licenses this time.

    I think it looks absolutely atrocious.

    And it's not going to race? What kind of tribute to the 935 is that?
