Is there a Porsche Fan In the world that deserves this Porsche art print more than you?
Look again at this picture. This is the fabled 1983 Porsche 956,
a car that exists in the land of the superlative and is universally revered.
Now what would make a Porsche driver and collectors drool over a Porsche like this?
Let's find out.
In the early 1970s, Porsche's domination of international prototype sports car racing faced new threats as other manufacturers stepped up their game.
The legendary five-liter, twelve-cylinder normally aspirated Porsche 917s had been phased out, replaced by the open-top 936, which featured a 2.65-liter turbocharged flat-six engine developed for Porsche's short-lived Indianapolis project. In 1981, Porsche won Le Mans for the third time in a row with this engine, known as the 935/76.
Once again the regulations were updated at the end of the 1981 racing season. The FIA created three new categories to replace Groups 1–7: A, B, and C, with Prototypes relegated to group C.
Although the rules for these new Prototypes had some wiggle room, there were size and fuel consumption restrictions. In order to restrict their ground-effects capability, the new regulations required that the most forward- part of their undersides be flat.
Porsche started design work on the first new concept racing car in a decade, using a monocoque style chassis for the first time, just two weeks after the announcement.
Norbert Singer was the production engineer, Valentin Schäffer was the engine specialist, Horst Reitter was the body/chassis engineer, and Peter Falk was the racing boss.
They brought us what is probably the most famous endurance racing car ever. A bonded and riveted sheet-aluminum monocoque would underpin the new race chassis, dubbed Type 956.
The front and rear suspension systems were mounted to this monocoque. Because of the configuration, the majority of the rear suspension was able to be shifted out of the airstream. The “flat under-tray” rule was then challenged by Porsche engineers, who created wide under-floor venturis, (tunnels), that began behind the flat portion and went to the tail.
The 956 generated massive downforce when combined with a new wind-cheating carbon-reinforced Kevlar body and adjustable rear wing. Schäffer's aim was to ensure that the 935/76 engine, which had water-cooled four-valve heads welded to its air-cooled cylinders, could retain its 600 bhp performance while also meeting the new fuel efficiency requirements.
Bob Garretson of Porsche Year wrote that the engine easily reached both goals by using twin KKK turbochargers on moderate boost, mechanical fuel injection, and a carefully tuned Bosch ignition and fuel management system.
A 1/5-scale model was ready for wind tunnel testing by mid-1981, and the first chassis was ready for track testing in March 1982 at Weissach.
After only three short laps, factory test driver and Director of Customer Racing Jürgen Barth realized he was driving "a superb car, enormously strong with handling that one only dreams of."
Production started right away, with a total of 25 being built for the factory team and then for customer sales through 1985. They would go on to have a huge amount of success in the WEC, with a 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans highlighting the 1982 season. In 1983, the factory team competed in Le Mans once more, this time with three entries sponsored by Rothmans and eight privateers.
The 956s were almost unbeatable once again, sweeping the top eight positions plus tenth.
As a result, a popular factory poster proclaiming, "Nobody's Perfect!" was made. Perhaps you have seen it?

I am a beginning art collector and I am well pleased with Newbury Press. They have been professional and patient, helping me through the ordering process. They did everything just as they said . The order even arrived a few days early. I have another order on the way and I have no worries that the process will have any problems. The order I received was made to be signed for and I truly believe that they have good security measures to make sure there are no snafus. And equally important, my product was in very good shape. Overall I would recommend this company to anyone looking to buy Porsche art. I can't wait to get my next package because I truly believe that I will be just as pleased.. I look forward to doing more business with them in the future. I would say they deserve an A+ rating.

Newbury Press has been one of the most impressive companies I have ever worked with. I have transacted multi million dollar collectibles and have received worse support, than the few thousand dollars I have spent with Newbury. This is a true rarity in today’s business world. Big or small purchases it doesn't matter Newbury Press, Alfred in particular is great to work with.
