New Porsche 935 review - up a famous hill in a re-imagined icon

It would be easy to be cynical, but the new Porsche 935 is beguiling and addictive

Evo rating

Evocations of the past using modern machinery can be tricky. Particularly from the photos it can sometimes be difficult to tell whether something is a fitting homage or a poor pastiche. But as soon as anyone saw Porsche’s 935 tribute in the Supercar Paddock at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed it was clear that it fell into the former camp rather than the latter. The all-carbonfibre bodywork shrouding the GT2 RS underpinnings is beautifully done, and the way that it mimics the original by retaining the standard car’s bumper and rear lights underneath the new skin is superb. Even the Martini livery looks good.
