The Porsche 956B is a prototype that participated at the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1986. The team Joest Racing after the victories in 1984 and 1985 again with the Porsche 956B, showed up in the new year with the same car and with the same ambitions, but the maker of Stuttgart entered its official team with the new Porsche 962. The private team of Reynhold Joest sided two cars with two different liveries.

George Follmer, John Morton and Kenper Miller with the Porsche 956B n.8 arrived third at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1986. The car had a livery that represented the American flag as a symbol of contrast to French politics. For the team Joest Racing was a podium achieved in the last hours, after halfway through the race remained without gasoline at the edge of the track and only thanks to the little reserve that had remained managed to return to the pits and start again. The other car of the team, n.7 driven by Klaus Ludwig, Paolo Barilla and John Winter, was forced to retire at mid-race due to the engine failure while he was in the lead. The race won by Porsche 962C n.1 of Derek Bell, Hans-Joachim Stuck, Al Holbert, while in second place the Porsche 962C n.17 of Oscar Larrauri, Jesus Pareja, Joel Gouhier.
