But it was the 962, which followed the 956, which would stick in many people's minds. A package so excellent that it won 21 constructors titles in the hands of Porsche and its customers in less than a decade.
So many 962s were bought by customer teams that there's an incredibly healthy supply of running chassis still available in 2019 – you could almost run a Group C championship for just 962s. But happily that's not what they do.
Which brings us on to this clip. The 962 is a handful, especially by today's standards. There's no power steering, an h-pattern manual gearbox and oodles of turbo-lag to contend with. But when you get it right, it must be all the more satisfying.
At the Spa Classic getting an array of Group C cars together means we get visions like this, which not only includes some proper wheel-working as the 962 tries to escape its pilot at Fagne, but also the sight of a Group C Porsche overtaking a Group C Jaguar at Raidillon. It could be 1988 again.
