A rare opportunity to purchase an authentic Porsche 962C, initially created in 1984 as the manufacturer’s weapon to conquer the North American championship series.
The previous Porsche 956 had dominated the European championships in the 80s, but to be eligible to race in the US, changes had to be made to prevent the drivers’ feet from extending past the front axle.
The wheelbase was stretched, Porsche’s PDK gearbox was implemented as was its six-turbo engine, and the was born. It went on to become the most successful sports car in history, securing 54 victories in the IMSA GT championship.
This car chassis N°174 was sold new to BO Strandell Race Team in November 1990. Having never raced, it spent time at automobile demonstrations until January 1992 where it was sold to its second owner who kept it for 22 years.
In 2015 it was bought by its current owners and four years later, it was cosmetically restored by Boutsen Ginion Racing.
The car has a very low milage car with 200 genuine kilometers on the odometer. It is being sold with an independent certificate of authenticity by Jurgen Barth plus a signed delivery receipt from the factory.
Viewing of this Porsche 962C, which is based in Monaco, can be organized by contacting Boutsen Classic Cars.
