So not all 935's had flat fans? Or is it just a newer rendition?

I believe what is shown is a 961 which is the road racing version of the 959.....

In what way? They don't even closely resemble each other. The 935 was based on totally different technology as the 961 was a race version of the highly advanced 959 supercar.

I think he's referring to with their clothes off, centerlocks, frame setup, evolutionary design of the chassis picked up and took over where the 935 left off - similar bodywork when you think about airflow and function, intakes in the rear quarters, big rocker panels, etc.

When you're balls deep into a 935 and see a 961 with its ass showing, they're largely similar in terms of a porsche based race car. Now a GT1, and later type race car from the factory are way out there...but the 961 grew from the 935 development.

Actually this is where I disagree. I have been up close and have had first hand viewing of my friends Jagermeister 935 fully dressed and mostly disassembled along with the 959. I know the 961 is similar in overall configuration. So I see the 935 far more as a highly modified 930 than I do see it similar to the 959/961 . When you consider the advanced engine design, AWD drive train, aerodynamics, shaved rain gutters and the myriad of electronics I have a hard time finding the similarities. I would say the 961 paved the way for cars like the GT1 and was departure from the 935 approach to racing.

I knew that the pic of the 961 was going to cause some discussion.

911 based
Rear engine
Twin turbos
Four wheels

Well I guess if we simplify it to that level I would have to agree. But seriously they are completely different in so many ways and the aspect that would really show the difference is the feel behind the wheel.
