Sold for $1,650,000 at 2016 Gooding & Company : The Amelia Island Auction.
This particular car, chassis number 962-012, was built and developed at Weissach. It is a late-production Joest Racing 962C works chassis. It was given a highly tuned engine and aerodynamic improvements including radiator flow guides and a large, center-mounted rear wing.

Chassis number 962-012 was sponsored by Blaupunkt and campaigned as Joest Racing's primary car for the 1990 season, with former Porsche works team member Bob Wollek and German F3 champion Frank Jelinski as its drivers. It raced in all nine rounds of the 1990 World Sports-Prototype Championship season with its best result being a 4th Place finish at Silverstone. At the close of the season, Joest Racing placed 5th in the team championship standings.

During the 1991 season, it participated in the European Interserie Cup with Sachs sponsorship. It was driven by John Winter (the pseudonym often used by German businessman and racer Louis Krages) in three of the four Interserie outings.

The car was retired at the end of the 1991 season, yet Joest Racing continued to campaign 962Cs in the US and Europe.

In late 1991, Porsche engineer Norbert Singer fitted two purpose-built 962s with Doppelflügel – or Double Wing. The carbon fiber bi-plane rear wing, coupled with revised rear bodywork and other aerodynamic advances, created more downforce than any prior 956 or 962. With the Double Wing, the cars were capable of about 370 km/h on the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans and reduced its lap time by approximately seven seconds over the classic longtail 962.

In 2001, chassis 962-012 was restored to as-new condition and given the Singer-developed Doppelflügel and revised bodywork. In January of 2006, Mr. Jerry Seinfeld acquired the car from Joest Racing.
