REVIEW

Developed after Porsche's 1994 LeMan victory with the 956 to replace the decades-old design with a new and improved international sports car. The final 1998 model, redesigned with a carbon-fiber body tub and incorporating an F1-style sequential shift gearbox, Porsche finally recaptured LeMan in it's 50th anniversary year. To meet regulations, a road version was also released, though only a few for select customers - at an original price of US$912,000.
