The car is based on the Le Mans Porsche 962C by designer Achim Storz under the guidance of racing driver Jochen. The car was first shown in Frankfurt in September 1993.
The first two Dauer 962 road cars, in black, were presented in 1993 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
In order to be approved by the German TUV, it took one-third more space in the cockpit to make it a two-seater, revised all body panels, wider doors, a larger windscreen, raised floor and roof level, added direction indicators and number plate covers, a small boot at the front, a lower rear wing and no air tunnels in the underbody.
However, the car’s structure remains the same: an aluminium monocoque with an integrated steel-tube safety cage and a Kevlar-reinforced carbon-fibre body.
