Norev remembers three limited-edition appearances of the Porsche 935 at Watkins Glen, Daytona and Dijon

back to blog overview

Jochen Mass, Jacky Ickx, Rolf Stomelen and Manfred Schurti as the pilots of the Porsche 935 in Martini design.

In today's blog article, we want to shed light on a real racing classic from the 1970s. The Porsche 935 in the legendary Martini design. The label Norev has released three of the countless launches of the Porsche 935 in the form of models in scale 1:18. One of the three replicated vehicles started in 1976 with the drivers Rolf Stommelen and Manfred Schurti in the six-hour race at Watkins Glen. In the end, the two pilots achieved first place. In 1976, the race was the tenth race in the Sports Car World Championship. With his victory in Watkins Glen, Manfred Schurti is the only person from Liechtenstein who has ever won a World Championship race. The model from Norev is available in our webshop in a limited edition of 1000 pieces.

In the same year, Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass won the 6 Hours of Dijon in a Porsche 935. The weekend in September 1976 in Dijon posed a real challenge for some drivers as two races were held within 24 hours. After the 6 hour race on Saturday, a 500 km race followed on Sunday. The Ickx/Mass duo won both races. Norev also issued the vehicle used there in a limited number of 1000 pieces.

The third vehicle is the Porsche 935 which was used in the 16th edition of the 24-hour race in Daytona. In Group 5, Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass started for the Martini Racing team. Here, too, the limited quantity of the Norev model is 1000 pieces. All three models have steerable front wheels and a true-to-original interior.

Overall, the Porsche 935 was produced between 1976 and 1981. The Porsche 930-based race car complied with FIA Group 5 regulations at the time. This meant that Group 5 race cars had to retain the basic shape of the original production vehicle in order to be homologated. For the doors, fenders and hood, the regulations offered a certain amount of leeway in terms of both the design and the choice of materials. In order to be able to achieve the required weight of 970kg, Porsche had to dive deep into their bag of tricks for the time. In addition to the body of the Porsche 930, which was not equipped with any sound or heat insulation material to reduce weight, the doors, fenders and hood were made of GRP. At the end of the development, the Porsche 935 weighed just under 900kg. Due to the remaining 70kg residual weight, the designers distributed light weights in the car and thus came up with an almost perfect weight distribution of 47% on the front axle and 53% on the rear axle. In the years 1976 to 1979, the Porsche 935 was the winner of the brand world championship four years in a row. In the DRM, Rolf Stommelen won in 1977 and Klaus Ludwig in 1979 in a Porsche 935. Also in 1979, the Kremer Racing team won Le Mans with a Porsche 935. With further victories in the IMSA GT series, the Porsche 935 is still one of the most successful series-based racing cars.
