The tempting trinkets that enhance Porsche ownership
Bit of a bugger getting that 956 or 962 through the old MOT, isn't it? The workshop bills can really add up. Thankfully, there's now a solution in the form of the new Haynes Porsche 956 and 962 Owners' Workshop Manual. In all seriousness, the book probably isn't meant as a serious dissertation on rebuilding Porsche's iconic Group C sports car racer. You know, the one that won Le Mans on its 1982 debut and went on to win six more times in various guises. It's more a history of the chassis, a techno deep dive and a guide to the remaining examples. The book features a wealth of archive photography and detailed images of the cars’ anatomy, plus interviews with drivers and engineers who worked on them. The manual is available now from haynes.com for £18.95.
