Porsche 956LH Le Mans 1984 car No.47 ‘BOSS’ 1984 George Fouché / Jürgen Lässig / John Graham
The 956 model was created by Porsche in 1982 to compete in the new Group C category. It was one of the most successful racing cars ever: it won four 24h Le Mans competitions consecutively, in 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, and the World Car Manufacturer title three times. The car was powered by a 2.650 cc engine. Its monocoque aluminium chassis was new for Porsche, previously known for their space frame design. Through this change, the regulated minimum weight of 800 Kg was reached.
