Kremer Porsche 962 C



When the safety features of the IMSA decision were adopted in the FIA Sports Act on 1 January 1985, it was the end of the story for the successful Porsche 956. The Type 962 C was developed as the successor. This model underwent fundamental changes due to the new safety regulations.


The front axle was moved forward by 12 centimetres, extending the wheelbase to 2.77 metres. For the 962 C, various drive units from 2.65 to 3.0 litres displacement were available, the output reaching well over 700 hp in the displacement strong engines.

After an already successful use of the 962 CK6 in the previous years, driven by Bernd Schneider, Kremer Racing used in 1992 the further development of this vehicle in the Interseries, the Porsche Kremer 962 CK7-1, piloted by Manuel Reuter.

Manuel Reuter and Harry Toivonen took over Schneider's cockpit in the 1991 season.1992 followed a further development with additional air intake on the bonnet.


On 30 August 1992, the fifth round of the Interseries was on the agenda. After winning three of the previous four races and finishing one in second place, the focus in the idyllic Most was on victory.In a spectacular race Manuel Reuter took the first place with the Porsche 962 CK7-1 and maintained the top of the Interseries table.
