[1976 champion machine that played a reversal play] Since 1976, the title of the world championship has been applied to group 5 machines, and the racing car developed to correspond to this is the Porsche 935. Group 5 cars are allowed to undergo major modifications, but regulations stipulate that they retain the silhouette (basic outline) of a commercial car, also known as the Silhouette Formula. The base is the Porsche 930 Turbo, a commercial vehicle released in 1974. The engine mounted on the rear end is an air-cooled horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine that has been scaled down from a displacement of 2992cc on a commercial vehicle to 2857cc. By increasing the boost pressure of the turbocharger and highly tuning each part, it demonstrates high power of 590 horsepower. In addition, the suspension has also been modified to significantly reduce the weight of the body. Although he made his debut win in the opening round of the Mugello 6-hour race in March 1976 and won the second round of Barrelunga, the air-cooled intercooler was found to be in violation of the rules and was forced to be converted to a water-cooled type. As a result, troubles occurred in succession in 3, 4, and 5 races, and BMW was kidnapped by the victory, but in the remaining 2 races, they won in a row. It brought Porsche the crown of a reversal champion.
