Porsche 962: The Sounds

Monday, September 20th, 2010

We recently captured this Porsche 962 on the start up of a mid-day “revielle” at the 2010 Fairfield Concours d’Elegance. The Revielle is a time for concours participants to start their engines and rev them up for the crowd for a minute or so.

In the video below is the unmistakable sound of the Porsche’s Andial developed flat 6 3.2 liter motor. This particular Havoline liveried 962 won the Sebring 12 Hours twice.

There is not much left to be desired when you’re standing next to that car as it revs up. Overall sounds include stuttered pops, cracks, growls, snarls, burbles and whirring.

One really unique aspect of the 962 that we enjoy seeing is the exhaust coming from the top and center of the car just above the motor. How great is that?
