Porsche is no different in this mentality and easily the most forward-thinking, and they had the track record to back that up at almost every turn. In 1974 the Porsche 930 Turbo was revealed to the public, sending shockwaves throughout the automotive sphere which also caused ripples into the racing world. What would Porsche be dominating with next? The release of the 930 was not just a coincidence, but intended to bring a turbocharged 911 to the racing circuit. Enter the Porsche Type 934. Porsche was required to produce 400 production vehicles in order to enter the new Type 934 car into racing, which they met handily with the new 930. The Type 934 utilized a 3.0-liter 485+ horsepower air-cooled engine with a single turbo, 4-speed manual transmission, locking differential, and aggressive-yet-restrained bodywork along with coil-over spring and shock suspension for better handling. The minimum weight limit for Group 4 was close to the 930 Turbos standard weight so Porsche left things like the headliner, armrests, carpet, storage compartment, door cards, and power windows intact! Due to its lack of downforce compared to other cars, the 934 was a bit of a challenge to drive, especially with the massive amount of turbo lag. Drivers even stated that they were pushing the throttle halfway through the corner and waiting for the windup, praying that they would be pointed straight when the boost kicked in. However, those who mastered the car (which many did) proved to be formidable on the track. Only 31 Type 934s were built by Porsche with most racing in Europe in the Group 4 racing classes and found a significant amount of success. They were the car to beat in the GT class, and saw success in America in the SCCA Trans-Am racing series in 1976 under the driving prowess of George Follmer who won the 1976 championship. Later in the IMSA racing series in 1977, the Porsche 934/5 (an upgraded version of the 934) saw success by winning 4 races outright during the season. Porsche 934, chassis 9306700157, was reportedly delivered to Italian driver Giuseppe Bianco who ran the car under a Jolly Club entry often with the financial backing of exotic car dealership, Achili Motors of Milan. During Biancos ownership the Porsche was mostly maintained by Tam Auto Tuning, with the owner of the company, Giuseppe Tambone, racing occasionally with Bianco. Between 1976 and 1977 this 934 took a number of wins, finishing with three 1st place finishes, during the Group 4 Monza race in 1976, Euro GT Misano in 1976, and Magione race in 1977. In 1979 and 1980 the 934 reportedly raced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 6 Hour Mugello, 6 Hour Dijon, and the 6-hour Vallelunga. After its racing career completed in Europe, the car was reportedly purchased sometime in the early 1980s by racing legends, Don and Bill Whittington. Bill Whittington and his brother Don Whittington, famous for their racing antics and their 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans outright victory in a Porsche 935 K3, owned the Road Atlanta race track as a part of one of their investments. The brothers purchased the 934 and shipped the car to Road Atlanta. They sometimes used the 934 as a street car while in Fort Lauderdale, and used it as a test car at Road Atlanta. During a birthday party for Paul Newman they took out the 934 for laps at Road Atlanta, with guests consisting of the likes of Preston Henn, Dale Whittingt
