The Porsche 962 was originally introduced in the mid 1980s after its predecessor, the 956, was banned in the US due to safety concerns (the driver’s feet were positioned before the front axle). A wide array of engines were available to power this race car, ranging from 2.6 to 3.2-liter engines equipped with either one turbocharger or two.
Throughout the 962’s racing history, it achieved many victories, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1986 and 1987 with Derek Bell, Al Holbert and Hans-Joachim Stuck behind the wheel of the Porsche for both years.
Eventually, the 962 became obsolete in the racing circuits near the mid 1990s.
All in all, Porsche crafted 91 examples of the race car from 1984 to 1991. And now, we have one of these historic race cars for sale on duPontREGISTRY.com.
A 1990 Porsche 962C (Group C form) is listed on our website for sale and is, essentially, brand new. This white model has only seen 20 laps on a European circuit and has never fully been raced. The seller also states that the car’s complete history is available, which is surely something Porsche racing fanatics would love to indulge in.
