The 1990's to Present: The Legend Continues

1991 Porsche (Gunnar) 966: Called either the Porsche 966 or the Gunnar-Porsche 966, this was the first open-cockpit prototype sports car and paved the way for the World Sports Car (WSC) class. Based on a 962 chassis and inspired by the 936, the 966 was built and campaigned by Kevin Jeannette's Gunnar Racing from 1991-93. The car was powered by a 3.2L Porsche twin-turbo flat-six. John Paul drove this car at the 1991 IMSA Miami GP, but failed to finish.

1992 Porsche (Gunnar) 966: Gunnar Racing built only one car, although it seems like more since it appeared in many different liveries. Brumos Racing entered the car for Sebring in 1992. Hurley Haywood and Bobby Caradine drove the 3.0L single turbo entry in the 12 hour race, failing to finish due to electrical problems. The 966 was not as fast as the Toyota, Nissan and Jaguar competition, but very competitive none the less.

1993 Porsche 911 Turbo S LM: Walter Rhrl, Hans-Joachim Stuck and Hurley Haywood drove the Brumos Racing entry at Sebring in 1993. They finished 7th overall and 1st in class. The 911 Turbo S Le Mans GT was a stripped down, road legal Turbo S for racing, using a smaller 3.2L twin-turbo six-cylinder, producing 475 hp and was the prototype for the 911 GT2. This car was raced at Le Mans in 1993, where it failed to finish and second at Daytona in 1994.

1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cup: Jack Leconte, owner of Larbre Competition entered this Carrera 2 (964) in the French Porsche Carrera Cup series, a single make series that was often a supporting race to touring car and F1 races. The Carrara 2 Cup cars are powered by 3.6L six-cylinder engines, which produce 420 bhp. Like the cars themselves, the engines are assembled by Porsche. Leconte also competed in Porsche Super Cup races and took a class win at Le Mans in 1993.

1994 Dauer Porsche 962 LM (LE MANS WINNER): Yannick Dalmas, Hurley Haywood and Mauro Baldi drove the Le Mans Porsche Team entry at Le Mans in 1994 to victory. It was the third Le Mans victory for Haywood and he then had wins in three different decades (70's, 80's & 90's). The Dauer 962 LM uses the Porsche 962 chassis and 3.0L twin-turbo six cylinder engine, with revised fiberglass bodywork. It produces over 740 bhp and a top speed of 251 mph.

1994 Dauer Porsche 962 LM: Hans Stuck Jr, Danny Sullivan and Thierry Boutsen finished 3rd at Le Mans in 1994 (2nd in class) in this car. Its sister car finished in first place, however, Boutsen set the fastest lap of the race at 131 mph. Because Dauer had modified a Porsche 962 into a street-legal car, the 962 was able to run in the GT class, instead of the C1 class for prototypes. 1994 marked the end of Group C and the loop hole Dauer used to compete in the GT1 class.

1996 Porsche 911 GT1: In spite of its name, the car actually has very little in common with the 911. The floorpan was taken from the 956/962 Group C car. In addition, the GT1 featured a water-cooled, twin-turbocharged and intercooled, four valve per cylinder flat-six in a mid-mounted position and making about 600hp. Designed for competition in the GT1 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GT1 was also raced in the FIA GT Championship, in which this car was raced at both Sebring and Laguna Seca in 1997.

1996 Porsche/TWR WSC-95 (LE MANS WINNER): One of two chassis built in conjunction with Tom Walkinshaw Racing, this car (Chassis #001) was driven to victory at Le Mans by Davy Jones, Alexander Wurz and Manuel Reuter in 1996.

1996 Porsche 911 GT2: Based on their Porsche Carrera Cup, French and FIA GT Championship results, Larbre Competition was one of the favored teams to take GT2 honors at Le Mans in 1997. The team owner Jack Leconte drove this car with former F1 racer Jean-Piere Jarier and car owner Jean-Luc Chereau. Transmission failure sidelined the car in the eighth hour in a race with heavy attrition, with only 17 of 46 starters finishing the race. The teams second car also failed to finish, exiting the race with suspension failure after 205 laps. Suspension failure would also sideline this car at Le Mans in 1978 after leading the GT2 class. Based on the 911 turbo, the GT2 had a 3.6L flat-six, twin-turbocharged engine, which produced 424hp.

1996 Porsche/TWR WSC-95 (LE MANS WINNER): Built for Porsche by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) and run by Joest Racing, the WSC-95 can trace its origin to a Jaguar sports car designed in 1991.

Model by ALTAYA/IXO 1/43
1998 Porsche LMP1-98 (TWR): Having won Le Mans in 1996 & 1997, Porsche realized that its hopes for a third win rested with the successful WSC-95. After making chassis updates and improvements, the new car was called the LMP1-98. Pierre-Henri Raphanel, James Weaver & David Murry drove for Joest Racing at Le Mans in 1998 in this entry, which was one of two team entries. The third time was not to prove the charm, as one car went out early with electrical problems and this car(#002) spun in the 16th hour and was unable to continue. In 2014, Porsche will return to Le Mans in the new LMP1.

The race which began in heavy rain behind the safety car, had the lead change 40 times during the race betwween Audi, Porsche and Toyota. With a lead of 25 seconds, the winning Porsche slowly reeling them in on fresh tires, it looked as if the leading Toyota would hold on to win.

Model by SPARK 1/43
2017 Porsche 919 Hybrid (LE MANS WINNER): Porsche claimed their 19th outright victory at Le Mans in 2017, but not without some drama like the year before.

PLEASE NOTE: From 1968 into the 1990's tobacco companies sponsored many significant race cars. We don't promote tobacco use, rather we stronly discourage it. However, we do promote historical accuracy, Old Irish Racing chooses to display models in our collection as historically accurate as possible. While seeing a tobacco advert on a car gives me no more desire to go smoke than seeing a car makes me want to go suck on its exhaust pipe.
