PORSCHE 962C 1988
The root of the Porsche 956/962 sits in 1981. The then New GROUP C endurance regulations where du to be effective in 1982 and Porsche decided to create a whole new car, replacing the Group6 936. Using the engine seen on late 936 bi turbo and 935 Mobydick, they create in a few months a whole new car with a monocoque aluminium frame (a premiere for Porsche, all Porsche sporstcar had up to now a tubular frame). At Le Mans 1982, the 956 made 1, 2, 3. A complete triumph for Porsche. The year after, around ten chassis were sold to private teams. In USA, As the 956 was forbidden in IMSA GTP for a question of driver's feet position across wheel axle, a long wheelbase chassis was developped: the 962 was born, with an air cooled mono-turbo engine. Entered in Group C, the car was renamed 962C and the 956 biturbo with liquid cooled heads was fitted. A whole page would be not enough to list all the victories of this near perfect car. So much iconic drivers leading it to the glory and victory. Derek Bell, Jacky Ickx, Mario Andretti, Stefan Bellof, Bob Wollek, AL Holbert, Hans Joachim Stuck. That car is a LEGEND driven by LEGENDS. Now, the car i built :D This is a 1:8 version of the very last factory 962C entered at Le Mans 1988. As usual, if it's in the real car, it's in my built: Flat6, differential, steering, shocks, awesome aerodynamic look, exhaust system, turbo, lot of technic hose.
About this creation
TADA!


Mulsanne Straight, June 1988.




Scissors doors





Flat6 bi-turbo engine


It's a racecar, no MP3 player, no gps, no "touch me" screen. No, it's YOU and THE MACHINE and that's all.










The rear suspension, i'm very proud of it. Has been difficult to set up but it's top notch.
Firm and bouncy.

The hours count for this model alone must be mind blowing (as well as its looks), never mind for your entire collection.
