One of the three carbon fiber tubbed 962s built by Schuppan

First unleashed as the revolutionary 956 in 1982, Porsche's first ground-effects car would turn into the 962 in 1984. The 956/962 would win every major endurance race in the world including the 24 Hours of LeMans six times. By the late 1980s the car was getting less competitive against newer technology cars like the Nissan and Toyota GTP and Group C entries.

Taking it upon himself to update the older aluminum monocoque design, in 1989 Australian racer Vern Schuppan produced his own composite chassis for Porsche 962 running gear and bodywork. Carbon fiber was the material of the future, and Schuppan believed it was the advantage that the aging 962 needed.

Ralph Bellamy carried out the engineering work, and the British company, Advanced Composites Technology, LTD who supplied materials to McLaren F1, manufactured the chassis itself. The complete racecars were assembled at Schuppan's factory in High Wycombe, west of London.
