1987 Porsche 962C

Chassis number : 962-C04

Share on:

Sold for $825,000 at 2012 Mecum - Monterey, CA.
Porsche 962-C04 was the last car campaigned by Bob Akin in the IMSA series. Mr. Akin took delivery of this Coca-Cola sponsored air-cooled IMSA 962 in late 1987. For the first time in Akin's career, he did not drive his team car in a race. Once the 1987 season was finished this 962 would be retired unscathed from IMSA competition and after only three races. Atkin himself would retire from professional racing.

The car finished fifth in its maiden outing at the Road America 500 in the hands of drivers James Weaver and Vern Schuppan. This was followed up with an effort by Hurley Haywood and Weaver at Columbus with an 8th place finish. The final race for C04 was the Del Mar 2-hour with James Weaver as the sole driver.

Since then, the car has been campaigned in the Historic Sportscar Racing series with great success. It is currently finished in Yokohama/Paradyne Black and Red livery.
