Favorite 1990s supercar, along with the Jaguar XJR-15, the Bugatti EB110 SS, Ruf CTR2, and the Lotus Esprit V8

The 956/962 was a successfull race car from 1982-1991 and a great road car since 1994.

Only 13 units were built (2/year; the last in the year 2002).
And:
6 of them belong to the Sultan von Brunei!
(That is not really surprising)

The best road version of the legendary Porsche 962.
It a race version of it won in LeMans 1994.
And the real race version a lot more...

Where that 6.9s 0-200Kph come from? Fastest test was 7.3s, and 2.9s to 100Kph, ...or i could be mistaken?..

cant think of a car i want more i just love how low it is and it has a jet fighter style cockpit plus its built by the germans for one purpose only . the only other cars that turn me on would be the f430 and in my price range the audi rs6 avant

Its not hard to imagine this dipping into the 9's, its more than on paper stats you have too consider, driver/tarmac/conditions/fuel/gearing etc. if Ultima can get a 9.9 at 144mph with there 720, and Saleen can get a 10.5 at 147mph with its crap tyres, and JR with a ZR1 in 10.7 at 134mph, even though there runs were all on dragstrips. still,with this 2300lbs 720bhp car, its not really unbelevable that it did it with stock tyres, but also, supposedly you can turn the boost up and youll be getting 920bhp (so i here), But, the article which had that time was writen in German with that stats psoted, i cant read German, but it is possible, doubt it, but definetly possible it was using different tyres.

I don't think the 1/4 mile is really important for this car. It's territory is a track and not a dragstrip.

Fair enough.... wouldn't be surprised if those tests used slicks!

No, i have no reason to lie. just telling what ive seen.

9.7 At 147mph Actually, no proof, just what ive seen a while back.

You just made it up, didn't you...


User avatar

BumRush  11y ago

There was also an ole German test of this which had a 1/4 mile in the 9's (9 something) a small article though, from back when it was relesed. its on a forum somewhere too.

Maybe but I'd be surprised, most (but probably not all!) 10 second cars have at least 800bhp/ton. The increase in power needed for every tenth of a second improvement in 1/4 mile time (in anything sub 11 seconds) is generally pretty big.

Theoretically for this car to hit 10 seconds dead it would need ~900bhp, to hit 9sec dead it would need closer to 1200bhp

I think I'd have guessed 10 flat, going off the Mclarens 10.8


User avatar

Wads  11y ago

1/4 would probably be closer to 10.5 as it would need over 1000bhp to get close to 9.5

Unfortunately I think we will never get a 1/4 mile time or any laptime, but this one is definately capable of beating any laptime for road legal production cars.


User avatar

Slayer123  11y ago

I think the 1/4mi time would be aroubd 9.5 s maybe??


User avatar

BumRush  11y ago

Couple things, 1, the FXX is a race car, so there is no time at the ring, unless it was cloaked during a race, and that would be irrelavant in the streetcar times, 2why you saying this of the 962 page? 3, why do you think it will beat the Gumpert?


User avatar

schumi  11y ago

I expect the new Ferrari F70 to beat the Gumpert time.Does anyone know what time did the Fxx at the Ring?


User avatar

steve__1979  12y ago

I think that the Caparo T1 would be the fastest by several seconds. Between 6:30 and 6:40 maybe - just look how much faster it is on the Bedford Autodrome West Circuit and that's a very short track.

I guess that the Dauer 962 would have a very close time to the 6:48 Radical SR8LM. However there is also a 500bhp Radical SM500 and a 800bhp 855ft/lb Ultima GTR that are almost ready to go into production which should not be overlooked.

Yes Definetly It Could, If I Had Too Guess I would Say These Cars Would Be The Top Dogs At The Ring:

So I Personally Think Each Of These Cars Have The Potential To Break Into The 6:00Minute Barrier At The Ring If They Were Ever Tested:

Not In Any Order:

Ultima GTR 720
Porsche Dauer 962Le Mans
Saleen S7 TwinTurbo
Mclaren F1 LM
SSC Ultimate Aero TT
Mosler MT900 GTR XX

Anyone;s Other Thought On What Would Be The Top Dogs If Tested?

Thats very interesting I never knew that. It's amazing that nobody has beaten that time for 17 years, what a legend Stefan Bellof was.

Do you think the Dauer 962 could beat 6:48?


User avatar

Georg  12y ago

it wasn´t the 962 which did the 6:11min it was the 1983 Porsche 956... the 956 are almost identical but have some major differents..
the 1983 956 had 640hp the 962 had 680hp, the 962 had a slightly longer wheelbase to get the driver feet behind the front axle and both drove two different version of Porsches flat 6, the weight was identical but the 962 was almost 50km/h faster..

Stefan Bellof did the 6:11min in traffic with several other Group C cars like Keke Rossbergs forcing him to slow down a little bit.

If the racing 962 can lap the Nordschleife in 6:11 could the road legal version do it in 6:48?


User avatar

Under 6:55 thats for damn sure.
