Using a chassis originally earmarked for a customer, this 962C was built for the works team early in 1989. It was not raced until the 1990 World Sportscar Championship, when it was fielded by Joest Racing for Bob Wollek, who was joined for most of the season by Frank Jelinski. Despite receiving considerable support from the factory, Joest Racing struggled against the next generation, all carbon-fibre rivals like the TWR Jaguars and Mercedes-engined Saubers. In 1991, John 'Winter' scored an outright victory with the car in an Interserie race at Siegerland. Towards the end of 962-012's contemporary racing career, 'Winter' and Bernd Schneider did manage to clinch a class win in the Mexico round of the World Championship, after placing third overall. Joest Racing retained the car and it was eventually restored to the ultimate double-wing specification created for sprint events by Porsche's Norbert Singer. In 2006, it was acquired by comedian Jerry Seinfeld, and it has now been consigned from his collection to the 2016 Gooding Amelia Island sale.
