In 1982, regulations in World Endurance Racing were changed and it became known as the Group C racing class. Porsche created the 956 in the same year specifically for this class, later modifying this highly successful car to comply with American IMSA regulations and renaming it the 962. In 1985 Porsche unveiled a further improved 962 which complied with additional revisions to world endurance racing regulations. This new car was named the 962C. Since then, this highly sophisticated car has undergone many subtle changes and but continues to be a consistently top performing machine. It has won praise from numerous racing teams all over the world for its exceptional reliability at the track. Many private teams selected the Porsche 962C as their entry to vie for the 1989 World Sports Prototype Championship.

The Porsche works team withdrew from Group C racing in 1989, however a number of private teams emerged and one of these teams was the Joest team of Germany. Throughout the season, the Joest team demonstrated tremendous potential using their updated 962C car finishing second to the all conquering Sauber-Mercedes.

Predomiantly an OOB build I added a few little extras to the internrior, transmission and engine.
