 This hand-crafted fantastic artwork has been designed to celebrate the Porsche 962 Works.

Our artwork is created to capture your passions. Each product is hand finished in a high gloss finish using vibrant colours which are baked onto the surface of high-quality aluminium sheet.

The Porsche 962, built from 1984 through to 1991 was based on the 1981 Porsche 956, after the 956 became ineligible for North American IMSA GTP Championship due to the way the front axle sat behind the drivers’ feet not in front. The wheelbase was lengthened to get around this issue, and the 962 was born.

Of the 91 cars that Porsche built, 16 were factory cars, the rest went to private individuals. One of the factory drivers, Derek Bell, drove the 962 to 21 victories between 1985 and 1987 and is quoted as saying that the 962 was "a fabulous car, and it was really quite easy to drive".

Bell won the Le Mans 24hr 5 times, twice in the 962 (1986 and 1987) with co-drivers Al Holbert and Hans-Joachim Stuck. He also won in 1981 with Porsche and co-driver Jacky Ickx in the 936, and again in 1982 with the 956.

Our artwork is created to capture your passions. Each product is hand finished in a high gloss finish using vibrant colours which are baked onto the surface of high-quality aluminium sheet.
