Since the mid-eighties, Ken Gold and Van Zannis, a pair of friends, car guys, racers and entrepreneurs, have continuously shared a common thread of everything Porsche. Van Zannis, from the San Francisco area, had several Porsche 930 race cars that were dominant in the West Coast PCA and POC club racing scene. Ken Gold got involved with Porsche racing a little later in the 90s while residing in Mooresville, North Carolina.
With the gaining of momentum in Vintage Sports Car Racing and the abundance of world class racing circuits on the East Coast, North Carolina seemed to be the logical location to take Van and Ken’s Porsche passion to the next level. Within the first year, the pair had acquired two authentic Porsche 935 K-3s and were campaigning them on the vintage racing circuit.
As Ken and Van were enjoying the competition and comradery of vintage racing, their 935 K-3s became somewhat of a novelty and an attraction at these events. They were unknowingly rekindling the passion and emotions that these legendary race cars ignite in people. Soon after, other 935s started coming out of hibernation and were going racing. In their second year of vintage racing, Van and Ken were known as “the go to guys” for everything 935. The pair took on several new clients with 935s for restoration, race prep and track support services. It became commonplace for their transporters to show up at Vintage Racing events and roll out 6 or more Porsche 935s ready for action.
THE 935 PASSION
We are very fortunate and excited to have our lifelong passion for these cars evolve into a project that is making these cars attainable for more enthusiasts to enjoy as much as we do.
