What are the freaking chances? Last week I posted a ’77 DP 935, a beautiful car that is unbelievably rare. Lo and behold another has hit the market no more than a week later. This one is a 1984 Euro 935 with a targa roof.
From the seller -
“YOU ARE BIDDING ON A TRULY UNIQUE AND RARE PORSCHE. UP FOR SALE IS A “REAL” DP MOTORSPORT PORSCHE 935 TARGA. THIS VEHICLE IS A 1984 EURO MODEL.
THE VIN IS: W09ZZZ235E0Z03003
THESE CARS WERE BUILT BY EKKEHARD ZIMMERMANN WITH KREMER TO LOOK LIKE THE PORSCHE 935 RACE CARS THAT DOMINATED THE RACING CIRCUITS IN THE 80S. THIS IS A REAL DP WITH A REAL DP VIN TAG. IT HAS A FULL DP KREMER BODY KIT, DP/ BBS WHEELS, DP SUSPENSION, DP ADJUSTABLE BOOST CONTROL, DP INTERIOR W/ POWER HEATED RECAROS, DP FIVE SPEED TRANSMISSION, AND MUCH MUCH MORE. THIS CAR HAS HAD OVER $44k SPENT ON IT IN THE LAST YEAR TO MAKE IT ALMOST NEW. WE HAVE ALL THE PAPERWORK TO DOCUMENT RECENT SERVICE AS WELL AS EPA / DOT WHEN IT CAME INTO THE US. TOO MANY ITEMS HAVE BEEN REBUILT OR REPLACED BUT TO NAME A FEW:
NEW MOTOR ( CYLINDER AND PISTON SET, CAMS, SEALS, CHAINS, BELTS, TURBO, HOSES, POWER COATING, ETC…) NEW RUBBER ( WINDOW AND WIND SHEILD SEALS, REAR GLASS SEAL, BUSHINGS, HOSES, BOOTS, COVERS, ETC..) NEW ELECTRICAL MOTORS (WINDOWS, ANTENNA, MIRRORS, SEATS, ETC…). NEW INTERIOR ( SEATS RECOND, NEW PARCEL SHELF, HVAC REDONE AND AIR AND HEAT WORK WELL. CUSTOM STEREO, NEW TIRES: PIRELLI 345/35ZR15 REAR, 225/50ZR/15 FRONT, NEW PAINT JOB, ALL GASKETS, SEALS, BOLTS, CLAMPS, HOSES, EXHAUST, ETC.. ARE AIRCRAFT QUALITY AND SHOW QUALITY.
THIS CAR IS TRULY AMAZING TO DRIVE. THE KREMER BODY IS LIGHTER THAN STOCK DUE TO CARBON KEVLAR AND COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION. THE MOTOR IS DE-TUNED TO ABOUT 360HP. THE ORIGINAL OWNER HAD IT BOOSTED TO 450HP AT THE WHEELS AND IT KEPT BURNING UP THE PISTONS. ITS SET UP FOR EVERYDAY DRIVING BUT STILL VERY VERY FAST! IT SOUNDS LIKE A RACE CAR.
ONCE AGAIN, EVERYTHING WORKS. THE ONLY THING NOT WORKING IS THE BOOST KNOB. IT WAS DISCONNECTED.”
The DP cars are not known for being understated but it is amazing how much more over the top this ’84 car looks compared to the ’77 we posted last week. The racing heritage is more clear in this car which makes me wonder why you would build one with a targa top? These tops lessen rigidity and add weight in extra support needed to offset them, two things that are not synonymous with racing.
Either way interest in this car is high, it has been bid up to $48k with six days remaining. The reserve has yet to be met which makes me wonder how much more it will fetch than the $58k asking price of the ’77 car. This car has over $44k in documented work over the past year which makes me think the reserve could be close to $60k.
I will be watching this auction closely and will report back.
