Description

The Porsche 935/78 was the final model of Porsche's 935, produced in 1978 purely for the Le Mans of that year. The 935 was part of the 'Special Production cars'(Group 5), this has made the car an inspiration for Japanese bōsōzoku customizers, alongside the R31 'Super Silhouette' version of the Nissan Skyline. Hot Wheels debuted a design by Jun Imai in the bōsōzoku custom style, the Mad Manga which is based off a 1970s Nissan C130 Laurel 2000SG-X 2-door.

Trivia

As of 2017, this is the only Porsche Model Hot Wheels has released in Right-hand drive. On the real-life car, the Porsche 935/78's gearbox was fitted upside-down to reduce the angle of the drive shafts, a unique modification only seen on the 935/78.
