Available for auction is a rare Porsche Dauer 962 Le Mans crest. This 962 memorabilia piece measures 22" x 16", features a convex curve, and weighs approximately 8lbs. A sticker on the back reads "Made In Germany Dr. Ing. h.c F. Porsche AG / Porscheplatz 1 / D-70435 Stuttgart PORSCHE."
With relatively high construction numbers and excellent parts availability, Porsche’s 962 inevitably became the Group C platform of choice for street-legal conversions. This paved way for a variety of well-known tuning companies to offer their own interpretations of a road-going 962. The most successful exponent was Dauer Sportwagen, the firm established by ex-962 racer Jochen Dauer after closing his racing team in 1991. Dauer purchased several unused chassis from Porsche who by this time had almost completely wound down its 962 operations. Within a couple of months, Dauer had a standard-bodied prototype up and running with the help of Porsche in an unofficial capacity assisting Dauer in sourcing parts and providing technical advice. The collaboration was later stepped up a notch when the two companies joined forces to manufacture a contender for the 1994 Le Mans 24 Hours. The result was the dominating 962 LM ‘Sport’, an enhanced GT1-class competition version that won the race and was banned from participating in 1995.
