Achieving the title of “most successful racecar of all time” didn’t come easy. Even for Porsche, overcoming rule changes and remaining competitive was a tall order. The 962 is, in fact, only a slightly longer 956, lengthened to accommodate FISA rules requiring the driver’s feet to be aft of the front-axle centerline. For 1987, Porsche brought in a more reliable and powerful 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, water-cooled, twin- turbo motor which boosted the car to 41 wins in the World Sportscar Championship and six victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It’s no surprise the 962 achieved as many championships as it did given its 710bhp yet well-behaved drivability. Several carmakers went on to produce a limited number of street legal versions, but more than likely the only seat time you will see is in Forza 4.
