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.

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?
