Porsche 936 examples at Rennsport Reunion V

Only four Porsche 936 examples were built and two were at the Porsche Rennsport Reunion V at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Model designations are famously confusing as the 936 was thought to be built on a 908 chassis and was also never intended to be sold to private customers. Designations are sometimes shown as 908/80 and 936/81.
