For their third and final season contesting IndyCar racing in 1990, Porsche Motorsports commissioned new chassis from March Engineering, which were explicitly built to accept the latest 161-cubic-inch V8 turbocharged Porsche engine. The result was perhaps the lowest-sitting cars ever seen in this type of racing. Teo Fabi, who had finished fourth in the previous year’s point standings for this team, was unable to duplicate his successes, but did finish third at the Meadowlands, New Jersey, street course and won the pole at Denver. Teammate John Andretti finished tenth in points with six finishes of seventh or higher, including a pair of fifth-place finishes. This particular chassis, which dropped out of the 1990 Indianapolis 500 after 162 laps with transmission trouble with Fabi driving, finished seventh at the Meadowlands, driven by John Andretti and seventh again at Laguna Seca, driven by Fabi.
