1979 - 24 uur / hours Le Mans
Porsche zou het makkelijk moeten hebben in 1979. Renault had zich na de overwinning van 1978 op de Formule 1 gericht en andere grote merken deden niet mee. Maar in een door regen geteisterde race liep alles anders en won er inderdaad een Porsche, maar het was een door een privéteam ingeschreven GT.

Porsche should have had an easy race. Renault turned to Formula 1 after their win last year and no other manufacturerscompeted. But in a rainy race everything went the other way. Porsche did win, but it was a GT entered by a private team.

1979 - 24 uur / hours Daytona & IMSA GT Championship
Daytona was de eerste race van het seizoen die meetelde voor het WK. Fabrieksteams waren ver te zoeken, waarna de lokale Amerikaanse teams de race onderling uitvochten. De Interscope Porsche won maar een stokoude Ferrari 365 GTB werd tweede.

Daytona was the first World Championship race of the season, but factory teams were nowhere to find. So the local IMSA teams battled it out. The Interscope Porsche 935 won, but a very old Ferrari 365 GTB finished 2nd.

1979 - Overige Wereldkampioenschap races / Other World Championship races
Het wereldkampioenschap sportscars leed in 1979 duidelijk aan bloedarmoede. De strijd ging tussen de diverse priveteams met hun Porsche 935's, oude Porsche 908's en 2-liter Osella BMW's. Met uitzondering van diverse inzetten van de kleine Lancia's en een eenmalig optreden van Porsche ontbrak het gewoon aan fabrieksteams.

The Worldchampionship struggled very much in 1979. Most races were won by Porsche privat teams, Joest with his old 908 or even 2-liter Osella's. Besides the little Lancia's that participated in a number of occasions and a single appearence of a works Porsche, the championship lacked some real factory teams.
