When it comes to customs, I like to challenge myself and build things that others may not have considered.
This custom started as the Track day Porsche 935. I’ve always been a fan of the 935 and wanted to do something with the shorttailed version, the 935K.
While doing research to find the chosen 935, I stumbled across the story of Jean-Claude Rudé. Rudé was a French bicyclist set on capturing the world speed record for a human powered bicycle.
To assist in this feat, Rudé enlisted Porsche for the construction of a windbreak. Porsche agreed to modify a 935 with a huge tunnel on the back for Rudé to tuck into in hopes of reaching the 150 mph mark.
Porsche chose to lend Le Mans winning driver, Henri Pescarolo, to pilot the high speed ice shanty.
One of the major problems with the experiment was that the 935 had so much turbo lag that even in the hands of Pescarolo, the car would pull away from Rudé when the turbo hit full boost.
Anyway...Here are some in-process pics. The finished product, the end of the story, and a full photo shoot will follow soon! Enjoy!
So there you have it. This is the status of my latest custom. Paint, decals, detail painting, and a few other mods are yet to come.
