RM Sotheby’s is offering a very special race car for sale, a 1980 Porsche 935 JLP-2. This historic race car is the second of the desirable Porsche JLP Racing 935s, chassis No. 009 00043 and fitted with engine JLP4 that was built in the United States to 935 K3 (Kremer) specification. This historic Porsche 935 competed in almost 50 races between 1980 and 1985.
Its condition reflects a restoration performed by Andial that took place from 1994 to 1995. It went to France in 2010, and more recently, was a Le Mans Classic and Classic Endurance Racing participant in 2016 and 2018. It just recently received a full engine and gearbox rebuild, as well as preparation for vintage competition, carried out last year by well-known Crubilé Sport.
This 1980 Porsche 935 Le Mans Race Car is a top competitor, eligible for historic races worldwide. Its new owner will surely be motivated to turn back the hands of time and take it to the track. The asking price is $2.1 million.
