Coupe
Chassis #: 935 0090030
Sold for $4,840,000 at 2016 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach.
Known as the 'Old Warhorse,' 935 0090030 was purchased by Dick Barbour in May, 1979, as a replacement for the 935/77 that was wrecked by Bob Garretson at the 1978 24 Hours of LeMans. Also known as the 'Made in Mountain View, CA by Garretson Enterprises' car, chassis 0090030 was entered by Dick Barbour in the 1979 24 Hours of LeMans race, where it won the IMSA class, and was second overall, with Paul Newman, Dick Barbour and Rolf Stommelen driving.

For 1980 the 935 was upgraded to the K3 specification that had won LeMans the year before. What made this car stand out was its Apple Computer livery. It would be the only racecar ever to carry their sponsorship.

In 1981, this car won the 24 Hours of Daytona with Garretson, Bobby Rahal and Brian Redman as the 'Red Roof Inn' car. It continued to be campaigned into the 1982 season, making appearances at Daytona and Le Mans.

Ahead of the 1983 season, the 935 was rebuilt to a 934-style configuration to comply with the new GTO regulations.

In 1983, powered by a 2.8-liter, single turbo engine, this car won the 12 Hours of Sebring with Wayne Baker, Kees Thierop and Jim Mullen. Besides having many top-three podium finishes, Porsche 935 0090030 was raced for over 70,000 miles. In this guise, it was raced in IMSA events through to the 1987 season.
