Though we tend to remember the IMSA GTP era for its dominant factory-backed prototypes such as the Porsche 962 and Nissan GTP ZX, the early days of the category saw a flurry of individual innovation. Such was the case of the Andial-Porsche 935L, a privately developed Porsche 935 with bodywork similar to that of the factory "Moby Dick" racers. Working with a fairly loose set of IMSA rules, California-based Andial built a bespoke, tube-frame, twin-turbo 935 to run in the new prototype category, and met with early success with a 2nd-place overall finish in the 1982 Riverside 6-Hour endurance race at the hands of Harald Grohs and beloved American driver Al Holbert.
Now a fascinating footnote in IMSA history, the Andial-Porsche 935L in Riverside trim is now available as a faithfully detailed 1:43-scale resin replica by Spark. Far from a cookie-cutter 935 model, Spark has accurately captured the Andial car's unique bodywork and period-evocative livery, along with its iconic BBS turbofan wheels. With a production run of only 400 pieces, the Spark 935L Riverside is certain to be a highly coveted model among fans of Porsche Racing's deep cuts.
