Watch Adam Carolla Guide his Ex-Paul Newman 935 Around Laguna Seca

Even when streaking downhill, the power advantage of the turbo cars is obvious.

This isn’t the first time Adam Carolla’s taken his ex-Newman 935 around Laguna Seca. Now a familiar face at the big-name vintage events there, he shows some genuine bravery when threading this $4.8M racing icon through traffic at this year’s Rennsport.

Though it’s a bit like hanging a Picasso above the stove, competing in the 935 is what it was meant to do—and the thick-skinned former host of The Man Show and Loveline proves his mettle by hustling this machine around a field of drivers of varying talent. The field’s one throughline: all the cars seen here cost a pretty penny. Therefore, even if the lap here is a bit on the casual side, he deserves a tip of the hat; putting a car that pricey in a compromising situation takes some courage.

What is obvious is the power advantage he and the driver of the yellow 935 enjoy. Screaming past a field of focused RSRs and 944 GTRs, the force-fed six is a real asset—especially at the power-favoring Laguna Seca circuit. With 589 horsepower and 437 lb-ft of torque powering a car weighing a mere ~2,200 pounds, it accelerates like an ICBM.

There are likely very few former construction workers who now fire a classic racing car around one of the most prestigious racing tracks in the world as a hobby. Watching this footage certainly gives me some motivation to wake up a little earlier in the morning.

Porsche Pictures From Rennsport Reunion VI

We had such an incredible time at Rennsport Reunion this weekend, and we will be uploading more content from the largest Porsche motorsport event in history. For now, we’ve got an incredible array of photography from the extremely talented eyes of Brett Sloan and Greg Keysar, who were both at Laguna Seca watching it go down in real time. With shots from the race track, around the paddock, and in the vendor row, of cars both brand new and ancient, this is an excellent aproximation of what it was like to be at Rennsport. Of course, it’s impossible to truly experience Rennsport solely through photos, so check back throughout the week to see our extended coverage.

Porsche 935 Moby Dick 2K18… Le passé, c’est demain !

Je suis sûr que vous l’aviez oubliée… en même temps, si elle n’a pas validé l’appli’ “Anniversaire” sur son profil Facebook, rien de plus logique (Eh, heureusement qu’elle est là cette appli’ pour s’la jouer : “Hooo, j’ai pas oublié ton anniv’ aujourd’hui !”).
