New regulations Group 4, 5, and 6 were introduced for sports car racing categories since 1976. Porsche prepared Porsche 934, 935, and 936 according to each regulation. Among them, Porsche developed a 935 based on a production-based 930 turbo for Group 5, which was allowed extensive modifications on the condition that dimensions such as wheelbase and driving layout and roofline were left based on production-based cars.

The Porsche 935 then was supplied to privateers and was active on the world circuit. In Japan, the Porsche 935 participated in the Fuji 500 Mile Race held at Fuji Speedway in 1978. The Porsche 935 painted in pink and white Italya color missed out on winning, but showed a glimpse of its ability and left a strong impression on fans.

The Italya 935 also participated in the Group 5 race in Japan in the following 1979 seasons, but was involved in a crash in the next two races and the body and engine were damaged. The Italya 935 left Japan for repairs and moved to the Kremer Racing factory in Cologne, Germany. In the same year, the Italya 935 was upgraded with the best K3 specification which was developed specially by Kremer and won the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
