: Porsche 935 P.O.A.


car description

Description: We are proud to present this rare, 1978 factory Porsche 935 for sale by its current owner. Chassis 930 890 0016 was sold to Reinhold Joest who campaigned it in both the World Championship and the German DRM series in 1978. At Le Mans that year the car was sponsored by the Whittington Brothers, owners of the Road Atlanta circuit in America. They failed to finish and the car then resumed its DRM duties driven by Joest. At the end of the year at Hockenheim during practice, Joest crashed the car putting himself in hospital, the accident and effectively ending his driving career. Although damaged, the car was by no means a write-off. The shell was stripped of its parts which were then used in a new Joest built shell, 009-0001J. In 1979 the shell for 890-0016 was repaired and used by Volkert Merl for the latter part of the DRM series whilst his regular car, 890-0014 was being updated with new Joest spec bodywork. Once back in his rebuilt car, 890-0016 was once again stripped of it's parts with the bodyshell and bodywork sold via Jurgen Kannacher, to John Lagodny of Luxembourg. John rebuilt the shell using the parts from his ex-Kremer 935, the original "K1", chassis number 00
