Remember the often-insane Porsche 930? It was publicly known as the 1975-1989 Porsche 911 Turbo. Colloquially, the “widowmaker.” And, of course, it had an even crazier factory racing version, the 935.
Back in 1976, Porsche envisioned its 935 racer as something that was thoroughly developed and modified on the basics of the 930 (911 Turbo) to adhere to FIA’s special production Group 5 rules. And ultimately dominate the motorsport’s endurance world.

And so it did, winning the 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans. As well as the laurels at other legendary venues, such as Sebring, Daytona, or 1,000 km (621 miles) of Nürburgring, among others. Porsche was clever to supply customer cars to private teams (something that other manufacturers didn’t), but of course, also catered to the technical specifications with due diligence.

As such, the track weapon of mass destruction was equipped with a 3.3-liter Type 935 twin-turbo flat-six mill, which had a mechanical fuel injection system and so many high-performance components it churned out no less than 845 horsepower. So, do we need to wonder why Porsche officially reinvented the 935 for the modern era not so long ago?

Now, with just 77 units, it’s naturally only for millionaires. But what if Porsche suddenly had a change of heart and decided to produce a road-going version as well? Well, there’s at least one virtual designer that would gladly adopt it, and then play with it some more. Musa Rio Tjahjono, the pixel master better known as musartwork on social media, probably needed to break the recent JDM sensory overload with something cool.

So, he decided to imagine a street-worthy 935 with a twist. His vision of a potential series-production 935/19 doesn’t come stock. After all, we are dealing here not just with a CGI expert, but also with the Head Designer at West Coast Customs. No worries, though, as his wishful thinking 935 is squeaky clean... for a tuned ride.

Naturally, the Porsche virtually adheres to many customary aftermarket traits. Such as adopting a slammed appearance, featuring lots of glossy-black aerodynamic enhancements even though a huge wing is missing in action, and even riding on a neat set of chromed, ultra-deep-dish DNZ wheels.
