Coupe
Chassis #: 962-138
Engine #: FR 001
Sold for $491,000 at 2010 Bonhams - Quail Lodge.
Chassis number 962-138 was used to contest FIA Group C World Sports Car Championship competition for two seasons, in 1988 and 1989. It is powered by a 3-liter twin-turbo engine and has been restored and rebuilt.

The car contested two WSCC-series qualifying rounds in 1988, at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium and at Sandown Park, Melbourne in Australia. It was co-driven by Tim Lee-Davey and Tom Dodd-Noble. At Spa it finished the 1000Kms in eight position, and then with Colin Crang as co-driver, Lee-Davey ran the car in the Sandown Park event to finish sixth. During the season, the car was rebuilt around a molded carbon-composite monoque chassis, though it had not been involved in an accident and had suffered no damage. The decision was made to replace the alloy sheet structure with the stiffer carbon-composite replacement for safety purposes. The work was done by Australian former Le Mans-winning Works driver Vern Schuppan's British-based Team Schuppan organization, and was endorsed by Porsche AG. The work was done using drawings provided directly from the factory.

Team Davey used chassis 138 in a minimum of eight World Championship rounds, plus the non-Championship LeMans 24 Hours, during the 1989 race season. The best finish for the car was an 8th at the Silverstone SuperSpint. At LeMans, it finished 19th.

The car was acquired by British enthusiast Jonathan Baker in 1992. The engine had been supplied on a contract basis by Porsche AG, so the car was purchased as a complete rolling chassis, less engine. Mr. Baker restored the car to concours standards and eventually given a Porsche 3-liter engine number C57. It was acquired by Mike Amalfitano in 1998. The car currently has a 3-liter engine number FR 001.

Brian Redman drove the car at the 2007 Porsche Rennsport Reunion at Daytona. It had an engine failure and was later rebuilt by Klaus Fischer, Amalfi Racing's technical chief.

Between 1984 and 1991, Porsche created 91 Type 962 cars. 16 were used officially by the Works team and 75 sold to customers. Some 956s were rebuilt as 962s - two were previously written off and four others rebuilt. Three badly damaged 962s were rebuilt with fresh chassis numbers.

In 2010, this 962C was offered for sale at the Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia auction presented by Bonhams. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $491,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
