Vern Schuppan's project
Vern Schuppan, winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1983, decided to develop a road-going version of the Porsche 962 after its retirement from racing. In cooperation with the parent company, Schuppan transformed the 962 from a competition car to a supercar for everyday use. The result was the 962 CR, an authentic racing car suitable for the road.
