Bisimoto’s Electric Porsche 935 “Moby X” Looks Like Longtail Perfection

By now, California's Bisimoto Engineering has already established itself as a hub for Porsche lovers, with the aftermarket developer having a fetish for the 935. And the company is currently working to introduce what is described as the "Moby X", a remix of the infamous Porsche 935 Moby Dick racer of the late 1970s.

The story of the Moby Dick starts with the 930-generation 911 Turbo, which morphed into the 935 racecar. At first, Porsche built the motorsport tool with the traditional fender-mounted headlights, but the project eventually received a slantnose approach that reduced drag and added downforce, with the MD arguably making for the most loved incarnation of the latter.

Just like in the case of other Bisimoto projects, the machine we have here is probably a replica of the 935L (another version of the racecar) built on a 930-gen 911. With the project currently under development, Bisimoto has joined forces with digital artist Khyzyl Saleem to further distill the Longtail shape of the Porscha. And we can now check out the artist's rendering on the matter, with the actual car set to land later in the year.

We're talking about a Brit who designs/refines cars for games (think: The Crew 2, NFS:Heat), while his body kits have also made it to the real world via the LTO (Live To Offend) label.

As the artist explains in the first Instagram post below, playing with the styling of such an automotive icon was quite an adventure. The additions include a slightly reworked center front fascia, stunning aero-shaped LED headlights on the sides of the bumper, as well as custom aero bits that are matched by the side skirt extensions.

The most visible posterior change sees the massive wing morphing into a wickerbill, while the Cyberpunk-style LED bar is also worth mentioning. Oh, and the multi-spoke wheels, with their deep concave profile, feature balloon cup-shaped wheel covers that resemble another legendary motorsport design, namely the Turbofan wheels.

We've saved the shocker for last: as confirmed by the second Insta post below, which comes from Errolson Hugh, an artist that also worked on the project (think:livery design), this will be an EV.

Then again, those of you who follow our Speed Shot tales (there's a tag for that below) might've seen this coming, since we first discussed Bisimoto's electric 935 tribute, a 635 hp monster, back in October 2019.
