The most important differences from other 935s include a 3.2-liter engine, air-to-air intercooler system, lowered chassis, high down-force composite body design, stiffened and extended roll cage, and larger KKK turbos. The Kremer Porsche compression ratio of 7.2:1 and 1.7 bar boost developed 800 hp at 8000 RPM. Even with the boost turned down to 1.4 bar, the engine developed 740 horsepower at 7800 RPM. The 935 K3 was capable of speeds over 200 mph.
