1992 DP 962

DP Motorsport, under the watchful eye of Ekkehard Zimmermann was the first company to covert the largely successful Porsche 962 into a road car. The conversion took over 1000 hours provided the owner had one of the 150 Porsche 956/962s as a base. Zimmermann spent 6-months developing this car which raised the headlights, added mirrors, reduced the A-pillars for vision and added four catalysts for exhaust emissions.

Only three 962 have been completed one in black with an orange ‘RS Tuning’ sticker, 1 green , 1 silver. Pictures of both the Black and Silver DP 962s have appeared on the internet.
