The Schuppan 962CR was built in 1994 by Australian racecar driver Vern Schuppan. The car was built as a tribute to Schuppan's 1983 victory at Le Mans and the 1989 All Japan Sports Prototype Championship title. The 962CR is essentially a chassis recreated by Schuppan to resemble a modified, street legal version of the Le Mans-winning Porsche 962 racecar.
The 962CR is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive vehicle weighing 2,315 lb. Powering the car is a 3.3 L twin-turbocharged flat 6 giving 600 hp (about 182 hp/L) mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The car's top speed is 230 mph (370 km/h), and it has a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.5 seconds.

The only element of the car manufactured by Porsche is the engine, which was the air-cooled, 3.4 liter, twin turbo version, incidentally, assembled in the United States for the 962C North American IMSA-spec cars. The chassis and body were built entirely by Schuppan. The car was built in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England by Modena Wycombe with Japanese backing, and at least two of the cars were shipped to Japan.
