"Endurance legend Porsche 962C" Painting by Malcolm Fletcher

Up for auction is a 30" x 40" original acrylic painting of the legendary Porsche 962C. The Porsche 962 is a sports-prototype racing car built by Porsche as a replacement for the 956 and designed mainly to comply with IMSA's GTP regulations. The 962 was introduced at the end of 1984, from which it quickly became successful through private owners while having a remarkably long-lived career, with some examples still proving competitive into the mid-1990s.

Canadian artist Malcolm Fletcher is a bush pilot, lifelong painter/illustrator/designer, and vintage air-cooled mechanic. Malcolm's work stems from deep love of automobila, vintage aviation, and more specifically the exceptional cars of Porsche. The painting up for auction is of his favorite race car which has just come out of restoration. Legendary endurance racing champion, the #17 Porsche 962C.

Malcolm has chosen to paint in a formal style scene that captures the eye and the imagination while still remaining true to the car's iconic form. Absolute realism isn't his goal but a creative and aesthetically pleasing work that can be enjoyed for many years that captures the essence of these cars at a single moment in time. "I paint in a very long process that involves many minor changes and tweaks over a period of several years. Paintings are often turned upside down to sort out the balance of individual areas. They get moved around and often stored for long periods until the inspiration hits. The paintings have evolved over the last number of years as I work out and refine my craft but am confident and pleased to present this piece for auction."

    Thank you for all that bid on this painting. It certainly didn't go high enough to reach the reserve but fortunately the Dealtank option makes it possible others to continue making offers and hopefully sell this piece. The current offer is greatly appreciated but it will need to go a bit higher for me to let this go. Please make an offer and this 962C painting could be yours. Cheers, Malcolm Fletcher

    Good morning fellow Porsche enthusiasts! Welcome to the last day of the auction! As stated in my description, this painting is continuing to evolve! I have made a few minor tweaks after looking at the pics up here. There was a spot of glare over the seat belt that bugged me so it's fixed! There is a tiny hook on the edges of the headlights that has been added as well as the vertical bar in the cabin air intake. The tow ring is now red and I am officially done! Good luck to all those interested and I'm excited to see some action as this auction gets closer to the end!

    I have the privilege of owning several of Malcolm's works and they are truly amazing and more impressive and vibrant in person than these photos can reflect. Malcolm has been great to deal with in all aspects of these transactions. Please bid with confidence.

    Thank you for the comments and opening bid! I'm excited to see this go to a new home but also going to miss having it to enjoy. This painting took 3 years to reach completion and has only 4 days left at auction. Good luck to all the bidders, I check in regularly to monitor progress and answer any questions about myself, painting techniques or subject matter. My previous works shipped easily to the US and this one is getting crated up ready to go. Happy bidding and thank you for considering my works. Malcolm Fletcher

    It has been many months since I first saw this artist’s work on PCARMARKET . This newly listed piece is as vibrant, detailed and beautifully executed as the earlier painting. The quality of this artist’s work deserves recognition. I certainly will be following the progress of this auction. BTW. I think it is terrific that PCARMARKET accepts artwork for auction.
