Powered by a tubocharged flat six, the 956/962 had
Porsche?s first full monocoque structure and was the first car its
engineers designed to produce aerodynamic downforce. Raced both by the
factory and by private teams, these were turn-key cars: just turn the
key?and win. These are among the world?s most respected racing cars. In
these pages an expert on Porsche, Karl Ludvigsen, shares rare images
from his personal archive and describes the highs and more highs of
these great Porsches.
