Le Mans (?) Fibreglass Model

hi there
i have what looks like a development model for a Le Mans (-type) race car, what seems like late 80s//early 90s, however haven't been able to trace it to anything.
the previous owner didn't know anything either...
just wanted to see if the shape rang any bells with anyone here

thanks !!

Doesn't ring any immediate bells with me from Group C, although there were no shortage of projects that never came to fruition.

Those deeply-sculpted sidepods ahead of the rear wheel-arch are what really throws me- at first thought, I don't recall seeing anything quite like that back then

This was the first thing that came to mind for me..... It clearly isn't because of that sculpting....

interesting, it seems to share general proportions with the LC2, but the sculpting is indeed strange, doesn't make quite sense aerodynamically to the amateur eye.
the previous owner apparently bought it from an ex-Porsche employee, but of course that doesn't mean anything, as it bears no resemblance to any of their designs...

Looks to me that the outer doors and sidepod covers are a separate part that aren't on there, the curvy shape is just the internal ducting. Sidepod coolers just behind the door that vent upwards right in front of the rear wheel were a common feature in early Group C/GTP designs.

The front fender cutout actually looks a lot like the 86G, but the tail and top surface of the fenders are quite different.

If you're on Facebook then the Mulsanne Corner group would be your best chance of answer. They know all sorts of random stuff like this.
