Mecum Auctions is offering for sale this 1995 Porsche 962 Kremer K8 Spyder, chassis No. WCS01, at its Monterey auction Aug. 14-16. Originally built by Kremer in January 1995, the car took the overall win at that year’s 24 Hours of Daytona.
The car’s open bodywork and composite construction reduced curb weight to about 2,100 lbs, ushering in an era of open spyders in prototype racing.
In the late ’90s, WSC01 re-emerged briefly in the FIA’s SportsRacing World Cup in Europe, before being acquired by a private collector. It has now been returned to the original No. 10 Kremer livery as seen at Daytona, and even returned to Daytona as a featured car at the race’s 50th anniversary in 2005.
