An evolution of the Porsche 956 Group C
The Porsche 962C is a legendary race car that dominated the endurance racing scene in the 1980s and early 1990s. It was based on the previous Porsche 956 model but featured several improvements, including a longer chassis to allow the feet of the driver to be behind the front wheels axle. The car was powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged flat-six engine that produces over 700 horsepower.

The most successful racing car in history
The 962C went on to become the most successful sports car in history, securing many Endurance World Championship victories as well as IMSA, winning also the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans many times. It helped cement Porsche's reputation as one of the greatest sports car manufacturers of all time.

This example
This is a rare opportunity for an avid car collector/racer to own an authentic 962C.
Chassis #174 was sold to Bo Strandell Race Team in November 1990 to replace a car that had been crashed. Bo fitted it with an original factory engine (that was built as spare for Le Mans) and an original factory gearbox.
Under Strandell ownership until January 1992, the car has never been raced. It only participated in automobile demonstrations. It has then been sold to its second owner in Italy, who kept it for 22 years. Since 2015 in the hands of its 3rd owner, he had it cosmetically restored by Boutsen Racing in 2018.

The car is currently for sale, available immediately. You can view it at Boutsen Classic Cars in Monaco.
