Porsche Group C for sale

Serial number 962C-110 was originally sold to Kremer Porsche in March of 1985, and run in the 1985 season, where it suffered a racing accident at the 1000kms of Mosport in August of that year. In 1987, 962C-110 was subsequently rebuilt utilizing a Thompson tub, to 1987 specifications. It was run by Kremer in 1987 and 1988. It was then sold to the Almeras brothers (incidentally the first Frenchmen to own and race a 962C) for the 1989 season, during which they campaigned the car extensively. The car’s exploits were documented in a book of theirs, and the car retains its Almeras livery today. Most recently the car competed with nearly 30 other GTP/Group C cars at the Monterey Historic Automobile Races- undoubtedly the most significant vintage race weekend in North America. Further accolades were accumulated at the 2009 Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours where the car won multiple awards.
Critically, the car was raced at Le Mans in period, making the car eligible for the Le Mans retrospective. The Almeras brothers rebuilt the engine and generally freshened the car just prior to selling it to an American collector who kept the car (alongside his Ferrari GTO and Maserati 200S) until 2003. The car ran and retains air/water intercoolers, 2.8 litre engine, KKK turbos, and Bosh 1.2 Motronic. The car was treated to a service in December of 2002 that included bodywork, cooling system, fuel system, clutch master cylinder, minor brake service, and miscellaneous hoses and clamps.

During 2009 s/n 110 saw a no-expense spared, massive, pre-season preparation to ready the car for any European Class C or USA IMSA GTP events
