1977 Porsche 934.5 IMSA

car description

1977 Porsche 934.5 IMSA VIN: 9306700180 In the late 1970's the technology of racecars was changing very fast. Racing organizations such as IMSA were re-writing rules to allow new cars to race and owners were putting a lot of pressure on the factories to supply them with the latest evolution as fast as possible. The Porsche 934 and in particular this 934 1/2 is a prime example of the intense competition in world sports car racing at that time. Porsche's street car, the 911 Turbo, was reconfigured for racing in two FIA categories; as the 934 for Group 4, and as the 935 for the faster Group 5. In the US the 934 was accepted in the SCCA Trans-Am in 1976 but not into IMSA until the following season. The 1977 IMSA rules allowed the 934 to be even more heavily modified using some 935 parts. The Porsche factory created an IMSA only version called the 934-1/2 late in 1976. The first race of the IMSA season is always the 24 Hours of Daytona held in January so the factory was under great pressure to get cars done and delivered in time. Ted Field's Interscope Racing Team had ordered two new 934.5s for the coming season but they were not going to be ready until later in the year. Under pressure
