1963 Porsche Carrera 2 Coupe by Reutter VIN: 120351 The Carrera 2 was an amazing advancement when it arrived in 1961, and the most expensive car Porsche had ever built. The star of the show was the jewel of an engine that resided in the back of the car: a two-liter, quad-cam masterpiece that put out 130 horsepower. This example has been meticulously mechanically and cosmetically restored by Road Scholars in North Carolina. They took 120351 down to its bare shell and painted it in its factory correct slate grey. Autobahn Interiors took the Carrera's original interior and recovered its correct hue in red leather. The engine was rebuilt by four-cam expert, Chris Powell, of Chris's German Auto Service. While not original to the car, the Type 587/1 engine is correct to a 1963 Carrera 2. All the original components on car were completely restored before being reinstalled. Every system was gone through and examined for functionally and correct appearance. Completed in 2008, the car would go on to win the Zuffenhausen Award (296.2 points out of 300) at the 2009 Porsche Parade. Here is an excellent opportunity to own a mechanically and cosmetically correct example of the rare two-liter, fou
1964 Porsche 356C T6 Carrera 2 Cabriolet by Reutter VIN: 160232 The exclusive 356C Carrera 2 Cabriolet, which only 28 are believed to have been built from 1964-65, is one the rarest Porsche road cars. This example was finished at the factory on 5/5/1964. It would be imported to the US from Germany in 1976 by then owner, Lieutenant Colonel Fromm of Hartford, CT. At that point the car's original 4-cam had been lost to history. Fromm would put the car up for sale in 1977, and it would move on to Rick Cool of Fairfax, VA. He would own the car for only a short time, and the Cabriolet would move on to Rusty Ferrell of Utah in 1982 for $5000. During those years Ferrell would own five 356C Carreras, and would go on to restore the Cab. He sourced a correct 4-cam Carrera engine #97395 from Jim Shane of Salt Lake City and installed it in the car. Around 1989 the Cab would be sold to a European owner. The next appearance of 160232 would at a Christie's auction in Tarrytown, NY on June 15, 1996 where the Cabriolet would fetch $134,500. In 2013, after a couple of owners, the car would begin a top-level, concours level restoration here at Canepa. The Cabriolet was stripped down to its bare tub an

The 356 was created by Ferry Porsche (son of Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the company). Like its cousin, the VW Beetle (designed by Ferdinand Porsche Senior), the 356 was a four-cylinder, air-cooled, rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive car utilizing unitized pan and body construction The basic design of the 356 remained the same throughout its lifespan, with evolutionary, functional improvements rather than yearly superficial styling changes. Nevertheless a variety of models in both coupe and convertible forms were produced from 1948 through 1965. To distinguish among the major revisions of the model, 356's are generally classified into a few major groups. 356 coupes and "cabriolets" (soft-top) built through 1954 are readily identifiable by their split (1948 to 1952) or bent (center-creased, 1953 to 1954) windshields. In 1955, with numerous small but significant changes, the 356A was introduced. Its internal factory designation, "Type 1," gave rise to its nickname "T1" among enthusiasts. In early 1957 a second revision of the 356A was produced, known as Type 2 (or T2). In late 1959 more significant styling and technical refinements gave rise to the 356B (a T5 body type) The mid 1962 356

The Porsche 356 is an automobile which was produced by German company Porsche from 1948 to 1965. It was the company's first production automobile. The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and open configurations. Design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its autumn 1963 debut. The 356 was created by Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche (son of Dr. Ing. Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the company). Like its cousin, the Volkswagen Beetle (which Ferdinand Porsche Senior had designed), the 356 was a four-cylinder, air-cooled, rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive car utilizing unitized pan and body construction. While the 356's body was an original design by Porsche employee Erwin Komenda, its mechanicals (including engine case and suspension components) were based on and initially sourced from Volkswagen. The fi
With the Carrera nameplate, Porsche had produced their first real production sports car. Named after Porsche’s victory at the Carrera Panamericana, this model mated the potent four-camshaft engine from the 550 RS Spyder into the 356’s unassuming chassis. Called the 1500RS, the Carrera engine was an air-cooled, four-cylinder engine that was designed by Ernst Fuhrmann to be an out-and-out racing unit. This engine used a complex system of bevels and shafts for the valvetrain, as well as a dry-sump lubrication system. Further distinguishing it was an aluminum block with chrome-plated cylinder walls and twin-spark ignition. Fuhrman personally motivated the Carrera 356 after fitting his own car with a four-cam. He recalls “In fact I put the first one in my own car… And people around here drove it and said, ‘that’s not so bad!'” This was good news, since four-cam unit had to sit further back behind the rear wheels than the standard engine. Soon after, Ferry Porsche had a four-cam in his own 356A. In 1956, Porsche introduced the 356 Carrera GS (road version) and GT (race version). A legend was born. This particular example was delivered new in France by Porsche importer Sonauto. Restored i

(SOLD) The Porsche 356 ‘Pre A’ is definitively known as the original 356. Production of the 356 began in 1950 and relied heavily on Volkswagen components. The 356 had an integral body and chassis utilizing unitary construction. By 1955 the 356 had been developed into one of the worlds most respected sports cars. This feat was quite remarkable considering that Porsche had yet to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The 356 ‘Pre A’s production ended in 1955 to make way for the 356A.
