This is the story of the most successful racing car of all time. The Porsche 956, 962 and their derivatives won countless international sports car races in the 1980s and into the 1990s.
Not the least of the tally were seventeen wins in the classic endurance races — seven at Le Mans, six at Daytona and four at Sebring. In a competitive career at the top level that lasted fully fourteen seasons, this family of racing cars rewrote the formula for winning with an endurance racing car.
Internationally acknowledged writer and Porsche expert Peter Morgan has looked behind the podium statistics and discovered the real story of the Stuttgart car maker's most successful racing product. Porsche 956/962 is the result of very detailed research in Porsche's own records and many hours of discussion with those most closely involved in both the factory and customer racing teams.
This fascinating and absorbing story is told in the direct and often revealing words of those whose diverse talents and passion for winning are undimmed even today. The success of the Porsche 956 and 962 was no stroke of good fortune, it was the product of these gifted individuals
