Switec Porsche 962C


The Porsche 962 is a legend in Group C sports-prototype racing, having being raced by such legends as Derek Bell, Jochen Mass, Mario and Michael Andretti in such iconic races such as Le Mans and Daytona 24 hours.

Constructed over a 4-year period, between 2001 and 2005, by ex Sauber Chief Engineer Ernest Schlaepfer in New Zealand at a cost of 2m USD. The car was built utilizing a sanctioned by Porsche Aluminium Fab Car IMSA chassis.
