1990 Porsche 962C

The Porsche 956 and 962 captured the World Endurance Manufacturer's and Driver's Championship (1982 through 1985), the World Sports Prototype Manufacturer's and Driver's Championship (1986-1987), the IMSA GTP Manufacturer's Championship (1985-1988), and the IMSA GTP Driver's Championship (1985-1987), along with many other victories and series championships.

Factory Porsche 962s typically wore Rothmans colors, though for the 1988 24 Horus of Le Mans the works team cars had Shell-Dunlop livery.
