Porsche 935 "Moby Dick"
Chassis # 935.81.JR.001
only three Porsche 935 “Moby Dick” built by the
factory. While one was totally destroyed in a racing accident
at Riverside, California the other car is on display at the
Porsche factory Museum making this example the only Porsche
935 “Moby Dick” in private hands and one of only
two remaining cars built. Fabulous history with JOEST Racing

as J.Maas, G.Moretti, B.Rahal, B.Wollek and others until 1983.
An extensive frame-off restoration was just completed and
the car was accepted in the 2004 Historic LeMans races. A
rare opportunity to own one of the most significant and competitive
Porsche race cars ever built.
has already been approved to run the Le Mans Classic.
