You Could Own This Classic Apple Livery 1979 Porsche 935 K3 Race Car

1980 marked the only year that Apple Computers sponsored a motorsport endeavor after Steve Jobs agreed to back the Dick Barbour Racing Team. Campaigning a 1979 Porsche 935 K3 adorned in a unique Apple livery, the DBR squad managed to secure a handful of podiums, including third-place at Road America, and second-place finishes at Sears Point and Riverside. The DBR 935 K3 was also considered a favorite at the 1980 24 Hours of Le Mans, though not long after the halfway point, mechanic failure forced the Porsche to retire.

Despite never outright winning a major event, the Apple livery 935 K3 is still a highly-coveted car, with the original example (which is owned by Adam Carolla) currently being valued at $10M. The original car is also what inspired this immaculately detailed replica version of the ’79 specimen which has just popped up for sale. Outside, the replica looks like a 935 K3, though under the hood it’s packing a 700hp+ 3.8L twin-turbo GTR mill, built by Bob Holcomb and fitted with a bevy of GT2 internals and a GT2 transmission. The replica also boasts a complete double wish-bone 993 rear suspension setup, BBS rims, and top-shelf Brembo brakes. This Apple-liveried Porsche track-weapon is currently on sale for $499,000.

Purchase: $499,000
