Paul Newman’s 1979 Porsche 935 Purchased by Adam Carolla

As a dominant force in the late 70’s and early 80’s, the Porsche 935 has a list of podium finishes over a mile long. Designed by Norbert Singer to compete on the world stage, crafty engineers found several loopholes in the rule book and built a legend. As the overall winner of Daytona and Sebring, this 1979 Porsche is among the most successful race cars we have ever seen. Our friends over at Rennlist.com pay close attention to factory race cars, and they discovered the identity of the new owner over the weekend.

Adam Carolla has an eye for automotive investments, which is why he spent $4,840,000 at Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach auction. As the host of his eponymous Adam Carolla Show, he has surpassed Ricky Gervais to have the most downloaded podcast in history. We ran into him last year along the Monterey waterfront and he told us he was in the market for something significant. Being the predecessor to such greats as the 959 and 911 GT2, this car is destined to appreciate. For provenance and complete history, head over to Gooding & Co. here.
