1988 Team Joest Porsche 962C

1988 Team Joest Porsche 962C

This Blaupunkt Team Joest Racing Porsche 962C finished in 3rd place in the 1988 24 Hours of LeMans. The car is famous world-wide and well recognised for its achievements with Swede Stanley Dickens, Germans Frank Jelinski and Louis Krages. This car is powered by the 2.8 litre twin turbo flat 6 with part water and part air cooling.

The 1988 LeMans race was significant for Porsche as their 7 years of successive wins ended. The well-sorted 7.0 litre V12 Jaguar XJR-9 of Jan Lammers, Johnny Dumfries and Andy Wallace broke Porsche's rein. Aussie Larry Perkins, along with Irishman Derek Daly and American Kevin Cogan, drove the second Jaguar to 4th place behind this Blaupunkt Porsche.

Group C cars are an amazing combination of automotive innovation, design and art! I had great pleasure taking time to observe as much of this detail and translate it into photos for your enjoyment. Please enjoy!
