Ah, the DP 935. It’s a car that in the world of Porsche generates both enthusiasm and enthusiastic hatred of the modifications. There’s no denying that they were one of the more spectacular modified Porsches in the 1980s, though, and while Duran Duran seems to be playing in my head everytime I see one, I nevertheless love to find them. We last looked at a blacked-out and modified 1986 DP 935 almost exactly a year ago. Today’s model, like the all-black model from last year, is not 100% correct or the full-crazy European-spec slantnose, but the U.S. spec toned down package that retained the original bumpers. Also like that car, this example has non-original wheels and an engine rebuild/refresh. Is it the one to buy?

If the insanity of the crazy modified 80s wasn’t enough for you in earlier’s DP 935 Targa, how about a 962-powered 911 Speedster? Sound absolutely bonkers? Yup, it sure is. But in the no holds barred world of the well-heeled, you can create just about anything that you want. Borrowing elements from the 962, 934, 959 and DP935 and adding them to the already quite rare and valuable Speedster, Bruce Canepa created the ultimate enthusiast’s dream of a convertible 911:

Now primed for summer, the 1988 Porsche 911 Targa DP 935 Slantnose we wrote up earlier this year is still for sale. In the world of original DP cars, this is a bit of an oddity, but also more affordable than most of its turbocharged brothers. Will it leave you seeing red?

It’s been only a few weeks since I looked back at a super black DP935 that popped up for sale again with no changes but a hefty price increase. Well, today there is another DP modified car; this time, a claimed 1 of 1 Targa model built from a 1988 911. One of the criticisms of the black DP was that because of many changes over it’s life, it was effectively a highly modified turbo with a DP body kit. Today’s car suffers from the same fate, in a way – though it’s much more original. Bought in Germany and delivered to DP Motorsports, this Targa got the full external DP kit and some gorgeous BBS magnesium race wheels as well as a lowered suspension – but critically, no engine modifications seem to have made their way into this car. Afterwards, the interior was modified into the red/black combination that it currently sits in. With very few miles, this may be one of the more unique period-correct pieces in Porsche tuning history available right now:

Darth Vader, your car has arrived. One of my favorite cars that I wrote up for “Tuner Tuesday” was the crazy all-black DP935 back in August. The car has moved sellers and is now available on Ebay. A reserve auction this time around, the opening bid price has climbed with reserve still on from the original $109,500 to $124,900. While there are much better photos of the car this time around, nothing else appears to have changed making those some pretty pricey pictures. Still, this is a fun car to look at, so enjoy the darkness!
