Paul Newman’s 1979 Porsche 935 Le Mans Racer

Over the course of five years, the 1979 Porsche 935 enjoyed over 150 worldwide racing wins making it one of their most prized models to date. This particular model offered Paul Newman, actor and avid racer, 24 hours of adrenaline during its 1979 Le Mans debut. He rode alongside Dick Barbour Rolf Stommelen finishing second overall in front of the race’s largest crowd turnouts to date.

The history doesn’t stop there either. In 1980 it was sponsored by Apple computers and to this day remains the only racecar the tech company ever supported. It also won the 1981 24 Hours of Daytona, first overall at the 1983 12 Hours of Sebring, and was restored in 2006 to its original ’79 Le Mans glory days and set for purchase by Gooding & Company. Estimates are available upon request but odds you’ll be competing with the likes of Porsche enthusiast Jerry Seinfeld for a chance to get your hands on this racing classic. [Purchase]
