 Second Best  
This is the second best Porsche race car of whole story, only behind the 917. Fantastic.

 dauer 962  
i love the design of the Porsche 962C.ive heard that dauer have a road version of the 962.ive only seen it once in black at the dubai autoshow in 2001.all the people were looking at it.the dauer 962 & the pagani zonda were the showstoppers that day.
 top speed  
Well, of course top speed at Le Mans is higher than indicated but this all depends on gear ratio's of the box and the dif. As the number of gears is limited you have to settle for a top speed which is dependent on the circuit. Most circuit have straights of less than 1 km, where the car would never be able to reach such high speeds, as therefore topspeed is sacrificed for traction. You may also have wondered at the top speed of WRC cars, having available 300 BHP. This is the same principle.
Dont ya think this porsche is kinda slow for 780 hp.come on yo i thought it was like 250mph when i looked at the hp,not 211mph.at least not the slowest in Le Mans.
It's berserk isn't it? I'm not too sure about top speed figures here though. As I've seen on the supercars.net site, there is a Dauer version with 730 horses and that one allegedly does up to 400 km/h. Could anyone tell what's the correct figure for this? Cheers.
 Driving the car.  
Later this year a 962C we?re building will be completed. I?ll get back to You on how it?s like to drive. It?s beeing built according to the IMSA rules. All-air cooled engine, one turbo and 650 or 750 BHP depending on which engine we?ll use. We have one engine and another is hopefully on the way. See You!
Yes I do agree that the 956/962 is one of the best ever. Nevertheless its initial dominance was so great that it became boring to see 10 to 20 differently painted Porsches circling around the track. However it was still much more interesting than to see 2 red formula 1 cars that are having the same dominance and will 15 years from also considered to be all time greats.

The 962 is one of the most awesome cars on the planet.Its only 900kg with an incredible with a turbocharged 3litre engine that delivers 780 horsepower. It is my absolute fave car ever!
