The Porsche 962 was built by Porsche as the successor to the infamous 956, together these
Group C cars had arguably the longest front line international career in motorsport history
totally dominating an era of Group C racing that is still talked about and fondly remembered

The reason for the introduction of the 962 was to allow the car into IMSA racing in the States
as the 956 was banned as the drivers feet were ahead of the front axle center line. Hence the
962 was made with a longer tub to bring the drivers feet further back. The championships won by teams campaigning the 962 included the World Sportscar Championship title in 1985 and 1986, the IMSA GT Championship every year from 1985 to 1988, the Interserie
championship from 1987 until 1992, all four years of the Supercup series (1986 to 1989), and the All Japan Sports Prototype Championship.

During the early years of the career of the 962, the car was one of the most dominant cars in motorsport. The championships won by teams campaigning the 962 included the World
Sportscar 1985 until 1989. The 962 also won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1986 and 1987 as well as later winning under the Dauer 962 badge in 1994.

The presence of strong factory teams, such as Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, and Toyota, competing against privateer 962s eventually led to the car becoming less successful in the later 1980s. Despite the presence of new cars and manufacturers, 962s would continue to
win races into 1993.
