Description

Meet one of the most successful racing cars, created by Porsche. It surprised the motorsports world not just with its capabilities but also with its almost 10-year racing lifespan. We can’t recall other modern era racing designs that lasted longer than this. Pete Dials is sharing its artistic perception of this car with this Porsche 962C GReddy poster print.

This Porsche 962C Greddy poster is beautifying the brute force

The story of 962 began with Porsche 956, which debuted in 1982 for then-new Group C category of top endurance racing. With the epic Mulsanne straight in mind, this car was big on power and low on drag. It appeared more than enough to strike its first Le Mans win in its debuting season with speed of 235 mph/h reached at Mulsanne. Welcome to the era of Group C.

Porsche 962C GReddy

It was not only there. Porsche 962 was a spectacular winner from Japan to America. For its record life span, the car was driven by legendary pilots like Mario, Michael and John Andretti, Tiff Needell, Derek Bell, Henry Pescarolo, Gary Brabham, Hans-Joachim Stuck and last but not least – Jacky Ickx. Porsche produced 91 962 cars in total in different trims. All of them were powered by air-cooled 6-cylinder boxer engine with different kind and stage of turbocharging.

Porsche 962 was so good to drive that Derek Bell, a 5-times Le Mans winner who drove 962 to 21 victories between `85 and `87 said it was “a fabulous car”. The factory racer Hans-Joachim Stuck said that “Porsche 962 is the best race car that I ever drove. Brute force and unbelievable ground effects. The centrifugal forces were enormous, and there was no power steering. You needed the strength of a bear and a lot of courage.”

The GReddy livered Porsche 962 praised with this poster artwork is from its last years, just before FIA banned the turbos out of the competitions. It seemed that this car was so good it had to be banned.

Now you can make yours this Porsche 962C GReddy poster, beautifully created by Peter Dials and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.

Peter Dials is a full-time Graphic Designer and part-time artist with degrees in Fine Art and Graphic Design.  Peter’s passion for the automobile stretches back to his childhood, with his first word being “car.”  As a child, he was always drawing cars but as he got older his art interests entered the fine arts and abstract painting.  However, his passion for automobiles and racing never left.  He was fortunate enough to grow up near the iconic Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course where he was able to get up-close and personal with race cars that fueled his passion.  He now spends his time at Mid-Ohio tracking his own car when the opportunity arises.

Peter has now returned to “drawing” cars stemming from his passion in racing and his interest in the graphic design of racing liveries.  His focus has been on creating illustrations of iconic liveries and the cars they were applied to.  Peter focuses on the shape, lines, colors, and shadows to create a clean and simplistic but eye-catching illustration.  Peter also creates detailed illustrations of whatever car inspires him at the time.
