The car was built by Australian racer Vern Schouppan, who won the 1983 Le Mans Marathon and the All Japan Sports Prototype Championship.
In 1994, Australian Vern Schuppan attempted to re-create the supercar in which he won Le Mans in the 1980s, changing the Porsche 962’s brutal exterior to a more washed out form while adding some comfort. The supercar is called the Schuppan 962CR.
The carbon monocoque was manufactured by Reynard Motorsport and all the body panels were made in-house, using some design cues from the Porsche 962 racing car. Final assembly was carried out at Modena Cars’ facilities in England.
In total, only six examples of the Scuppan 962CR were produced between 1992 and 1994.
