The 1995 Proton Cars World Darts Championships was the second world championship organised by the World Darts Council (now the Professional Darts Corporation) after an acrimonious split from the British Darts Organisation during 1992/93. Proton Cars took over the sponsorship from Skol, who had sponsored the inaugural event in 1994.

Phil Taylor emerged as champion, overcoming John Lowe 5-4 in an epic semi-final before beating Rod Harrington in the final to claim his first PDC title, his third World Championship in all.
