Coupe
Chassis #: 962-108 (962-108C)
Porsche 962-108 was a factory built car was one of four cars originally allotted to Jim Busby Racing. The car debuted at the 1985 24 Hours of Daytona and was crashed at night by Pete Halsmer while trying to avoid a back marker. The tub was damaged beyond repair and Busby got approval from Porsche for Lola Can Am engineer Jim Chapman to build an aluminum honeycomb replacement tub with a billet aluminum rear bulkhead. This new combination of materials would prove successful as it was stiffer and lighter than the original 962-108. This new chassis would be numbered 962-108B. This new car was crashed at Sears Point in 1987 requiring a second new Chapman built tub, 962-108C, this car. The car sat on the pole and finished 2nd at the 1988 24 Hours of Daytona with Bob Wollek/Brian Redman/Mauro Baldi driving. Development continued throughout the 1988 season, including new bodywork, suspension upgrades and engine development which kept the team competitive with the factory Nissans and Jaguars.

In 1989 this car would win the 24 Hours of Daytona driven by Bob Wollek/John Andretti/Derek Bell. This would be Derek Bell's final 24 Hour victory and the 50th win for the 962 in international competition. Campaigned by Porsche privateer Jim Busby and sponsored by B. F. Goodrich and the Miller Brewing Company, this car was described by Derek Bell as his favorite Porsche prototype race car. It was driven by some of the greatest talents of the day including John Andretti, Brian Redman, Bob Wollek, Jochen Mass, Mauro Baldi, Darin Brassfield, Rick Knoop and Derek Bell. It is equipped with an air-cooled 3.0-liter single turbo engine built by Ed Pink. The original body and chassis were damage during competition. The current chassis was built using honeycomb aluminum and a milled billet aluminum rear bulkhead. The coachwork constantly evolved and developed during its race career to maximize aerodynamic efficiency. The current body features one-of-a-kind styling unlike any other Porsche 962. It features custom front bodywork and large flat side-fences to take advantage of down force generated by the rear diffuser.
