1981 Porsche 935 K4

car description

1981 Kremer Porsche 935 K4 IMSA GTP Chassis: 935-K4-01 During the mid-70s the Porsche factory reigned supreme with dominate performances from their rugged turbo-powered production racecars. By 1979 the factory began to switch its efforts to the new 936, 956, and 962 prototype, non-production based racing cars. This change spelt the end for the factory Porsche 935. However, a demand still existed for the continued development of the ferocious 935. Fortunately some years earlier Porsche had given its blessing to a number of racing teams with close ties to the factory to purchase components and drivetrains, and then designed and produced their own upgraded chassis and bodywork. While these newly constructed vehicles were still generally referred to as Porsche 935s, in reality, they were entirely new designs that advanced the 935 concept to a new level of speed and sophistication. The pinnacle of these independent efforts was the overall win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979 by the Kremer 935 K3, the last production based car ever to win overall at Le Mans. The Kremer Brothers of Cologne, Germany had enjoyed a close relationship with the factory since 1970, and were allowed to proceed
