I have gone through several stages of feelings about the new GT2 RS-based 2019 Porsche 935 track day special since I heard about it on Thursday. First I was a mixture of intrigued and disgusted at the idea of a three-quarter-million-dollar Porsche 911.
The Porsche 935 was the wildest version of the 911 concept, a flat-nose racer that was almost too powerful to race in the 1970s. Now it’s back, based on the existing 911 GT2 RS, run up to 700 horsepower.

The flat expanse of Sebring International Raceway has never looked as good as here beneath the flaming exhausts of a Porsche 935 at the 1984 12 Hour of Sebring.
The guys at Speedhunters have been obsessed with all things Porsche this month. To continue the fun, they got their hands on some awesome footage of Stuttgart's racing efforts from 1976. Of course, they weren't content to leave well enough alone, so they've given the film a modern spin. The result may put off some…
