This car is one of the 37 customer 935s built by the Porsche factory from 1977 to 1979. The Martini Porsche Works 935s are currently in the care of the Porsche Museum and several private collections.

This Porsche 935 was built to order for Otis Chandler, publisher of the Los Angeles Times. At the time of purchase, his stable included a new 928 and 930, the 904, 917K, and 917/30 Can-Am Spyder. Additionally, he had already owned an early 935 customer car. This 935, he put his order through Jo Hoppen (invoice date March 15, 1979) at Volkswagen of American Inc., then the official U.S. Porsche distributor. Including shipping, adjustable stabilizer, and air jacks, the new 935 cost Mr. Chandler $134,963.10.

Most Porsche 935s were finished in plain, white bodywork. Chandler, however, required that his car be finished in Vintage Racing Blue to match his Sunoco-liveried 917/30.
After the car arrived in California, it was taken to Riverside Raceway for a test session with Chandler and John Thomas. Its first competition outing was on April 22nd, 1979, at the inaugural Los Angeles Times Grand Prix of Endurance, also known as the 6 Hours of Riverside. The race counted toward the IMSA Winston GT Championship and FIA World Challenge for Endurance Drivers, meaning several 935s were entered in the GTX class by several American teams including Brumos, Dick Barbour, Interscope, JLP, Swap Shop, and Whittington Brothers.

The Chandler 935 was driven by Chandler and Thomas, and it wore race number 10 with San Miguel Beer sponsorship. It was running as high as 3rd Place before engine problems forced it to retire prematurely.

After the Los Angeles Times Grand Prix, the car was sent to ANDIAL workshop in Costa Mesa, California where it received a new three-liter, twin-turbocharged engine. After the car returned to Chandler, it was used occasionally for demonstration runs at POC and PCA events during the 1980s. In 1990, it returned to ANDIAL for servicing. The car would remain in the Chandler collection until November of 1993, when it was sold to Dennis Aase of Anaheim, California. The car remained with Mr. Aase for a brief time, selling it the following year to David and Karen Hall of Portland, Oregon. The current owner acquired the car in December of 1996 from the Halls.

Since that time, the car has been campaigned in two HSR vintage races including the 935 Challenge at Daytona in 2000, when David Murry drove it to victory. After these events, the car was given a sympathetic restoration.

The car is currently finished in the Vintage Racing Blue livery and retains the three-liter engine built by ANDIAL in 1980. It has a single KKK turbocharger which helps the 2,994cc single-overhead-cam Twin-Plug flat 6-cylinder engine produce an estimated 650 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transaxle and four-wheel drilled and ventilated disc brakes. The suspension is independent comprised of adjustable coil-springs.

This 935 is unique in that it was only raced once. It car was purchased new by LA Times owner Otis Chandler, a real Porschefile. The one outing was at the 1979 Los Angeles Times 6 hours of Endurance at Riverside, driven by Otis Chandler and John Thomas. The car was then upgraded to twin turbochargers at ANDIAL. Following the upgrade. the car was put into Otis Chandler's private museum. A passenger seat was installed and the car was used for media rides at the 1980 Los Angeles Times Grand Prix.
