For the second time in a few weeks, the Monterey area in California is playing host to an amazing automotive gathering. In August it was Car Week, probably the biggest gathering of rare classics and concepts on the planet. This week, it’s the turn of just one marque, because it’s Porsche’s Rennsport Reunion. The event, held at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, is a celebration of Porsche’s racing heritage over the past decades. And the car maker used the event to debut a new race car inspired by one of its greatest hits—it’s a reborn 935.

The original 935 was a 911-based racer that first appeared in 1976 and went on to have an illustrious career in the late 1970s. Distinctive bodywork gave it a much wider track thanks to massively flared side extensions, a characteristic flat nose, and in the case of the 935/78 for the 1978 24 Hours of Le Mans, a massive whale tail at the rear. The last of those led to the car’s enduring nickname: Moby Dick.
