Description

 

The Porsche 962 is a sport-prototype racing car designed to replace the Porsche 956, in American IMSA and Group C WSC races.  It was one of the most successful racing cars ever and won several prestigious events around the world including:

 

  • World Sport-Prototype Championship in 1985 and 1986
  • 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1986, 1987 and 1994
  • IMSA GTP Championship in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988
  • 24 Hours of Daytona in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989 and 1991
  • 12 Hours of Sebring in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988

 

The IMSA "GTP" regulations required some modifications compared to the Porsche 962 designed for Group C racing.  For example, the front axle was moved 12 centimeters forward to ensure the driver's feet would stay behind the center line of the front wheels.

 

The Porsche 962 IMSA featured a 6-cylinder engine displacing 3.2 liters - it was air-cooled with a single turbocharger and 2 valves per cylinder with a single overhead camshaft.

 

The Porsche 962 IMSA was raced by American privateers - one of the best known teams was Bob Akin's red #5.  Bob Akins along with co-driver James Weaver reached 4th place at the Daytona Finale 3 Hours in October 1988.
