    If I remember correctly, it's a street version of the Porsche 962 race car.

    0-60 in 2.6 seconds. That's all i needed to know when i first heard about the Dauer.

    Also, i believe the Sultan owns 2(?)... One black, one red... Maybe a yellow one, i'm not sure... They're beautiful cars; the Porsche 962 is my favorite of all Porsches...

    Here's their site.

    This "street" car won the 24 hours of LeMans "overall" in 1994......much to the consternation of the ACO.

    The Porsche factory collaborated with Mr. Dauer to the extent that they have never done before with Ruf or anyone else. It truly is a remarkable, rare and expensive vehicle......worthy of every penny you'd spend. Sort of an "unnofficially" sanctioned factory street version...if you get my drift.

    Porsche was pissed at the ACO for changing the rules at LeMans, so they did this project to stick it back to them........heh.

    Would it beat a Mclaren F1 on track?

    For sure it would.
    McLaren F1 LM or GTR vs Dauer 962 would be a better comparaison.

    Possibly. But it is completley undrivable as a normal car imo. There was an article in EVO about it. The McLaren would beat it for everyday driveability

    Well.....using the Dauer 1994 LeMans results, compared to the 1995 McLaren F-1 GTR BMW results when Porsche did not enter this car, I would say yes....easily in fact.

    Dauer Porsche 962LM......344 laps completed......4,678 km

    McLaren F-1 BMW.....298 laps completed.......4,058 km

    Probably. But then again, the F1 was never designed to be a race car, the Dauer was...

    See, now, i saw a show on Speed Vision some time ago about the street-legal 962 and it was almost Benz-like civilized... 7 speed manual gearbox that could be switched to an automatic when in traffic and the whole nine; maybe i'm thinking of something else... Can anyone confirm this...?

    I'll post the evo article and you can decide for yourself ;)

    Well......the Dauer 962LM meets the European Economic Community (EEC) emission standards as well as the TUV safety standards. I might add that both were more stringent than the US reg's at the time IIRC.

    Read their website....oh yee non-believers of little faith....chuckle.

    That might just be my favorite EVO issue!!... other then the lastest special Ferrari issue of course ;) The street legal racers throughout the years like the XKSS and the 2.8 RS are marvelous cars.

    Ryan....

    They were a million USD back when they were introduced.

    The website leads me to believe you can still get one.
