Race Car for Sale – 1990 Porsche 962 C

1990 porsche 962 c

This Group C Porsche 962 Le Mans car is being offered for Auction at the Bonham’s The Spa Classic event at Francorchamps, Le circuit de Spa Francorchamps on May 24, 2015.

There is not much information on this lot yet but I managed to track down some history. This car was run by Obermaier Racing in the 1993 Le Mans race with Otto Altenbach, Jürgen Oppermann and Loris Kessel driving it to a 7th place finish.

From the listing:

7ème au classement général et première Porsche au 24h du Mans 1993, livrée par l’usine, un seul propriétaire
1990 Porsche 962 C
Chassis no. 962-155

From Wikipedia:

The Porsche 962 (also known as the 962C in its Group C form) is a sports-prototype racing car built by Porsche as a replacement for the 956 and designed mainly to comply with IMSA’s GTP regulations, although it would later compete in the European Group C formula as the 956 had. The 962 was introduced at the end of 1984, from which it quickly became successful through private owners while having a remarkably long-lived career, with some examples still proving competitive into the mid-1990s.

PRICE: Auction estimate – £1 million – 1.3 million, €1.45 million – 1.85 million
