Spotlight: 1987 Kremer Porsche 962C

Cars, Features I By Justin Cornelison I February 13, 2023

After an IMSA Porsche 962 sold in December on BaT for $962,000 (surely not a coincidental final bid $), another 962 is headed for the auction block: this time an ex-Le Mans racer!  Gooding & Company will be offering this stunning 1987 Kremer Porsche 962C at the upcoming Amelia Island Auction early next month.

This particular 962C not only looks absolutely incredible, but it raced in both the 1987 & 1988 24 Hours of Le Mans, finishing overall in 4th & 8th, respectively.  It last sold via Gooding & Company in 2019 for just over $1mil, with the new owner only using the car in one track day event.  Although the market has been down, we expect this one to sell for a bit more than it did the last time if crossed the block.

Incredibly original, well documented, and resplendent in its searing Leyton House livery, this Kremer Porsche 962C evokes the period as well as any in existence.  These legendary sports racing machines redefined the racing landscape and conquered all challengers for more than a decade.  Such domination is embodied in this amazing example, which promises a rewarding experience whether used for static display or on the track.
