1990 Porsche 962C Team Trust

VIN:  962-170

Team Trust
One of the Last Porsche Factory 962s Built
Prototype High Downforce Bodywork
The turbo 3.2 liter motor is of the latest and last Porsche factory 962 specification

Ordered by the Japanese racing team, Trust, 962-170 was constructed by Porsche as a complete rolling chassis, built by the factory to FIA World Sportscar Championship configuration. After its completion in December of 1990 it was sent to Japan in early 1991. The motor, 956 358, was sent on separately as it cost considerably less with regards to customs duty for importation. This was and still is a common practice. Motor 956 358 was a new turbo 3.2 liter 962 motor in latest and last Porsche factory specification.

962-170 was used by the Trust team for testing only and has very few hours of track time. Since it was a test car and not subject to the rigors of racing it was not modified or damaged in any way. Because of this 962-170 is the most original, period correct 962 in the world today.

This car has undergone a complete restoration and race preparation by Canepa. It is fully sorted, track tested and race ready. It is absolutely stunning, equally at home on the race track or in a museum. Nothing was over looked in the restoration of this car. It is as close as you can get to a brand new 962.

This car is eligible for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and other historic events worldwide, and has a current HMSA log book.
