Exposed carbon Porsche 935 is out of this world
What is our fascination with carbon fibre weave?
Based on the Porsche GT2RS, the all-new 935 Clubsport is a sleek beast designed for bossing any racetrack in the world. It has long body panels that reduce the car’s drag coefficient and are all made of the motoring community’s favourite material, carbon fibre.
On most of the 77 examples, the carbon is painted over to create beautiful liveries. However, in the United States, one owner has decided to refrain from painting their model. The result is sheer bliss with the carbon weave flowing its way along the body breaking up the sun’s rays.
Thanks to the slightly textured aspect of carbon fibre, the car seems to glisten in the sunlight as if it has had a pot of glitter sprinkled over it. To protect such expensive bodywork, the owner decided to have the entire car covered in a special paint protection film to avoid stone chips and rubber marbles from the track from damaging it.
In fact, the 935 Clubsport was created to compete in the brand-new GT2 category alongside the Porsche GT2RS Clubsport and Audi R8 LMS GT2. We already saw a preview of this category when the Porsche cars took to Spa-Francorchamps before the Total 24 Hours of Spa. One can just imagine seeing this fully exposed carbon fibre 935 battling it out with beautifully painted racecars.
