1979 Porsche 935 K3
Overall winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979, this 935 K3 survives as one of the foremost examples of racing success bolstering Porsche’s image of excellence. The 935, which competed in the Group 5 production-based car class, was the ultimate 911-based racer of its era and one of very few production cars to win Le Mans overall. Its “K” designation refers to Germany’s Kremer Racing, a shop that modified and developed a variety of Porsches for use by “privateers” (teams without formal factory support).
