The Porsche 956 is the winning car of the 24 Hours Le Mans of 1983. After the victory with the Porsche 956 in 1982, the official team began selling the 956 to the private teams giving them the chance to win races like the official team.

Vern Schuppan, Al Holbert and Hurley Haywood won the 1983 Le Mans 24 Hours with the Porsche 956 n.3, the trio crossed the finish line with the steaming car due to engine problems, parking it immediately after the checkered flag. In second place with a gap of seventeen seconds the 956 n.1 winner of the year before, the official team got a splendid double. The 956 sale to individuals led to a domination of the Stuttgart manufacturer occupying ten positions on the first eleven.
