Aesthetics: Patrick Long Mans the Coca-Cola Porsche 935 /84 – ‘The Last of the 935s’

Andrew Ritter

While it's not a brand that dominated the racing world, Coca-Cola is arguably one of the most world renowned brands in our history. It seems fitting that such a brand would grace the body panels of one of the last Porsche 935s built for competition. Fabcar, in Tucker, Georgia, assembled the car from the most successful parts in its predecessors. The car earned it's title as "The Last 935" as, shortly after its successful debut in Daytona's 3 Hour Finale race, the Porsche 962s began to enter into IMSA, bringing the era of Porsche 935s to an end in competition. 32 years later, and the familiar Coca-Cola lines caught my eye as the Porsche 935 /84 rolled into the starting grid. Behind the wheel sat Porsche driver, Patrick Long, ready for another stint in a racing legend. As the car sat waiting for its turn on Laguna Seca's challenging curves, I took a moment to explore the details that seem so unique between the various Porsche 935 variants.
