This Fully Street-Legal Porsche 962CR Le Mans Race Car Is Currently For Sale

After winning the 1983 24 Hours of Le Mans in a Porsche 956, Vern Schuppan set out to create a road-going version of the LM prototype based on the successor to his Le Mans-winning ride — and one of the most successful Group C racing prototypes ever built – the Porsche 962. Christened the “Schuppan 962CR,” the project was funded by Japanese investors and aimed to produce 50 units, but by the time the Japanese economy collapsed in the early ‘90s, only six specimens had been built, at a price of between $1.5 and $1.9M a pop.

Weighing just 2,300lbs, the mid-engined Schuppan 962CR was built around a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and was powered by a 600hp liquid-cooled, twin KKK turbocharged 3.3L Type-935 Flat-6 that allowed for speeds of 230mph and 3.5 second 0-60mph runs. The Schuppan 962CR was essentially identical to Porsche’s 962C, though featured looser suspension, and different wheels and tires to make the vehicle more conducive to street use. Despite the enormous rarity of the Schuppan 962CR, chassis number 4 of 6 — a fully road-legal example wearing a 1983 Rothmans livery —has just popped up for sale through Boutsen Classic Cars in Rue Grimaldi, Monaco. For more info, you can check out the car’s page on the Boutsen Classic Cars website linked below.
