This Porsche 956 Group C Prototype Hits the Auction Block at Pebble Beach
This year's Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will be your chance to own this incredible Porsche 956 Group C Prototype. The vehicle will be going up for auction at the swank event providing someone with very deep pockets the chance to add an exclusive car to their collection. There were only 10 examples of the rare Porsche 956 Group C ever built. Porsche developed the car with Norbert Singer at its facility in Weissach with the intent of designing nothing but championship-bound cars. RELATED: See More Photos of the 1984 Porsche 962
This particular example, chassis #003, is the most successful of all the 956 race cars making it an even more precious commodity than its brothers. Its history starts with the 1982 24 Hour of LeMans when Jochen Mass and Vern Schuppan drove it to a 2nd place finish. That same year it won four races under the guidance of the best drivers of the time like Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell.
Al Holbert, Hurley Haywood, and Vern Schuppann won the 24 Hours of LeMans in this car in 1983 by crossing the finish line only 63 seconds before another Porsche 956. It will be going up for auction at Pebble Beach through Gooding and Co for an estimated price of between $7 and $9 million.
