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
Here is an incredible opportunity to own a rust free, very nice example 1959 Porsche 356 A 1600 Super Convertible D. This incredible survivor has had a good life over several caretakers, where it was properly maintained, and cared for, for over 50 years. It has minimal wear and nice patina. It remains its original Ruby Red exterior and Light Brown interior, with US bumpers as delivered new. It has a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity to verify its birth colors, and numbers. Delivered November 26, 1958, it went to Hoffman NY, where it started its life in the US. During its ownership, the original engine was taken out of the car, and replaced with a 356 B engine, as it added more power and performance. This Porsche also comes with the original block. One of only 1,331 models made during production, the body is the same as a Speedster, expect for the taller windshield, and roll up windows. This car is currently being serviced, and will receive a full vehicle detail afterwards. A file of receipts will accompany the car, as well as the PCOA, and the original engine block.
Philip Raby Porsche Porsche Sales and Service This Porsche 356 Speedster recreation has just been treated to a full cosmetic and mechanical restoration and looks absolutely stunning. It is based on a 1966 Volkswagen with an Scats-worked 1.6-litre engine that has been bored, and fitted with uprated push-rods and twin Weber carburettors, it produces around 75bhp. It has just been stripped right down and rebuilt with a full stainless-steel dual-exit exhaust, new cowling and other trim. The rest of the mechanical parts, including the brakes, have been overhauled with new parts as well. The body was, we believe, created by replica specialist Pilgrim and is extremely well built and features ‘Outlaw’ style wide arches to give the Speedster a cool Californian roadster look, set off perfectly with brand-new 8×15 Smoothie chrome steel wheels and hubcaps, plus new tyres. The Ivory White paintwork has recently been applied to a very high standard. The interior is finished with refurbished red leatherette seats, matching carpets and a new wood-rimmed steering wheel. This is a unique and wonderfully fun car at fraction of a price of a genuine Porsche 356 Speedster. It is beautifully presented an
1958 Porsche 356 A 1600 Coupe with Sunroof s/n 101972 engine no. 67304 (included), 87072 (fitted) Burgundy with Tan Leather Interior Porsche began the venerable 356 series as their first foray into sports car production. With much of their success in racing, the world could see that Porsche was a force to be reckoned with. By 1958 the 356 could be purchased with the potent Super engine, initially as a 1500, and later in 1600 form. The 356A became one of the most sought after early Porsches, exhibiting the finest craftsmanship and engineering, particularly in these early cars. This particular example is a nicely restored and beautifully presented car with the rare 1600 engine, which now features a sunroof. It was restored in a very striking color combination several years ago, and has nicely aged via a dedicated 356 collector who enthusiastically used the car prior to selling it in 2011 to Tom Papadopoulos of Autosport Designs, Inc. through Fantasy Junction. Papadopoulos spent an additional amount of time and money refining the car even further over the course of several months (receipts of this work included with the car). While a previous owner believed this to have always been a
The engine Willhoit created isoriginal, with a SCAT lightweight 74-mm crankshaft and Carrillo connecting rods. Willhoit sent the case to Ollie's Machine in Santa Ana for all internal work. Custom, 91-mm cylinders made from Mahle VW big-bore cores yielded a displacement of 1600cc.
1965 Porsche 356 Cabriolet VIN: 161539 Originally imported to Teaneck, NJ in 1965, the car's first owner was Jean A Giebink from Cleveland Heights, Ohio. She was getting her graduate degree in Social Administration at Case Tech and used a government stipend to help buy the Porsche. The car proved too expensive for her, and it moved onto another owner around 1968. In doing our research on this car we were actually fortunate enough to speak with Ms. Giebink and get this story directly from her. When the Cabriolet first arrived at Canepa in 2008 it was already restored in its beautiful Champagne Yellow paint and black leather interior. While not an original SC car, the Cabriolet has a period correct SC powerplant rebuilt to stock specifications. We put the car through the Canepa Difference process, and it was sold to a collector in the Northwest shortly after. In the past 8 years, the owner only put on a careful 3,000 miles, while maintaining and storing the vehicle perfectly. Now back at Canepa the Cabriolet has once again passed through our meticulous mechanical and cosmetic inspection, and is ready to show, or put the top down for a spirited summer drive.
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
1958 Porsche 356 Speedster VIN: 84251 Purchased new by a resident of Woodside, CA in 1958, and he would go on to own the car for the next 32 years. In 1973 he would drive the car to his property in Ukiah, CA and put the car in storage until its sale in 1990. The second owner from San Anselmo, CA (a personal friend of Bruce Canepa since the 1980s) would take the car in 1992 to renown 356 restorer, Tim Goodrich of Grants Pass, Oregon, for a complete, concours level restoration. Tim Goodrich only restored 12 Speedsters during his illustrious career. Six of them would go to the Porsche family, and are on display at the factory. The other six went to private owners. This car is the last Speedster Goodrich would restore before he retired. What sets his restorations apart is his attention to factory details, reproducing even the smallest aspect of a Speedster - just as it left the Porsche factory. The car was stripped down to its tub and restored from the ground-up. The original engine and transmission were rebuilt. No expense was spared, and the owner even flew out master upholsterer, Don Fowler, from Connecticut to do the interior and top. The result was a perfect restoration of a very
Porsche 356A Reutter Coupé, originally produced in 1957.Included with the vehicle of course, is the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, confirming the original build date and specification which included a Blaupunkt Bremen radio, sealed beam headlights and ventilated chrome wheels.

This Porsche is as capable of touring as it is enhancing any static display or collection - a great investment for the future.

1953 PORSCHE 356 PRE-A CABRIOLET In accordance with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this charming 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet was completed on June 23rd, 1953. The car was originally ordered in Fashion Grey, paint code C531B with a red leather interior and comfort seats, and optioned as a USA deluxe model. It was one of just 394 Cabriolets built in 1953. The original 1500cc engine has been replaced with a later unit that appears to be a 1960 model year 1600 Super engine, an upgrade that would have added over 30% to the car's initial horsepower rating. The Kardex reads that the new Porsche had been ordered by a company called Cattaneo in California, but also logs a 700-mile service as being performed in September of 1953, presumably at a Porsche dealership located in Paris, France. One could assume that the first owner of the car took delivery in Europe and used it there before shipping it stateside. In July 1990, the car appeared for sale on the 356 Registry out of Atherton, California. At the time of the listing, the car was still in its correct colors. The car was in comedian Bill Cosby's collection at some point. Today, this rare Pre-A Cabriolet presents beautifull

The Porsche 356 was the first Porsche production car. It was produced by the Austrian Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH, which earlier worked on the Porsche 360 Cisitalia and Volkswagen Beetle, as well as the Auto Union Grand Prix cars. After Ferdinand Porsche was released from a French prison after the war, production of the Porsche 356 was taken over by Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH in Germany. In total about 50 cars were produced by the Austrian factory. The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel drive two-door car, available in coupé and convertible versions. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. From the early 1100 cc beginnings, the overall shape of the 356 remained more or less the same. In 1951, 1300 and 1500 cc more powerful engines were introduced. By late 1952 the divided windscreen was gone, replaced by a V-shaped unit which fit into the same opening. In 1953, the 1300 S or Super was introduced, and the 1100 cc engine was dropped. In late 1954 Max Hoffman, the sole US importer of Porsches, convinced Porsche to build a stripped down roadster version with minimal eq

Variant: 1958 Porsche 356 A T2 Coupe This is a very rare opportunity for someone to own a stunning and iconic piece of Automotive history. It has been subject to a full 'nut and bolt' restoration while also being stripped back to bare metal to fully restore the bodywork. In fact the whole vehicle was returned to original factory condition.It is in superb condition and is a credit to the restorer and previous owner. It also comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. In 1956, Porsche upgraded it's 356 model, to a 356 A (T1), which further refined into a 356 A (T2) model for 1958 to 1959. Each evolution brought with it new innovation and a race winning pedigree. The Porsche 356 was not the most powerful car of it's time but handled like none of it's competitors on the race track or on the open road. Following an extensive 'nut and bolt' restoration, chassis #102310 is complete. The car carries it's original features, all original panels, with the exception of the floors and front nose panel which were replaced as part of the restoration. The car is now in 'concours' condition as it was when it was first built. Original stampings can be found in all of the expected places; VIN plate, engine lid hinges, door jams and through the engine grille. The wheels are original and date stamped 1957, the interior comprises the original seats, which have been re-trimmed in a luxury caramel leather and completed with original biscuit coloured German square weave carpets. Sadly this is not a fully matching numbers car as the original engine and transmission were removed at some point. However, the engine is an original 1958 correct period 616/1 engine from the same production run with the same specification - as per the Porsche certificate of Authenticity. The transmission was uprated to a 1958 Porsche type 716 transmission, which offers superior drivability. This transmission was only available for two production years and is very rare. This is truly a wonderful example of the iconic 356 model.
(SOLD) This rare and collectible Porsche 356 A coupe has recently benefitted from a restoration by Porsche specialists, Classic Showcase of Oceanside, CA. With only 30,015 original miles on the odometer, this beauty is a very sought after example, with a numbers matching motor and transmission, it has been registered with the 356 registry, and it has the special Reutter Coachwork. During the restoration process, Classic Showcase disassembled and documented the vehicle, the body was stripped, it was body worked and fit, all parts were fit to the car in bare metal; it was primered, sealed, painted base coat/clear coat, all parts were painted off the car individually, then it was color sanded and buffed, and the systems were restored, or replaced, as needed. The sheet metal and the engine compartment have also been restored, as well as the undercarriage. Sound deadening was installed prior to having the interior fit by their master upholsters. The interior is trimmed in all the proper German materials and it even features the Porsche radio blanking plate. The bright work was replated as needed. This is a very nice example of a highly collectible model that was restored in a desirable

(SOLD) This striking Porsche 356B is a very original car with the rare Smyrna Green exterior, and with factory super 75 HP. This Porsche has a matching numbers motor and the 616/12 case designation according to the factory Kardex Porsche build sheet (The Kardex is a card which resides in a card file in Ludwigsburg, Germany. The original purpose of this card was to be a warranty record for work performed on the car at the factory). It has had a fresh restoration performed by a Porsche 356 restoration facility where it was stripped to bare metal for its body and paint work. It was color sanded and buffed to show condition and has excellent hood, door and trunk fit. There was a complete motor rebuild performed and the cosmetic restoration included new weather stripping, chrome, interior, underside detail and 4-corner suspension detail. This beauty is ready for the serious Porsche collector who demands the very best.
(SOLD) This vehicle is an original unmolested example. This speedster has matching numbers. It has small California pink slip. Restoration was started approximately 25 years ago and was put away in dray storage.
(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.
(SOLD) The Speedster offered here received 3000 miles of sorting following a cost-no-object rotisserie restoration of a rust-free Texas original. Of the small umber of Pre-A Speedsters produced, fewer than 100 are believed to exist today. A complete photographic record of the restoration work as well as hundreds of receipts for parts and labor are included with the car. Stock 1955 Speedsters came in 55 and 70 horsepower versions. This car has benefited from being fitted with a 1960’s vintage Porsche 912 engine with a 1760cc big bore kit thereby increasing the output to 130 horsepower. This effectively raises the top speed from 97 mph to over 120 and reducing the 0-60 time by one-half. Extensive records and photographs of the engine build will also be provided to the new owner. In addition, front disc brakes and 12 Volt electrics have been fitted to make driving safer and more pleasurable. This example is bar far a most desirable Porsche as it combines a lovingly restored authentic Pre-A 356 Speedster with the most appropriate upgrades. Surely no early Porsche is deserving of the name, “Speedster.” This is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity.
(SOLD) This is a spectacular fresh restoration by Porsche professionals to the highest level. No expense has been spared in this comprehensive nut and bolt restoration. This 356 C Cabriolet will make a great addition for the Porsche collector. During the restoration process this vehicle has been fit to perfection and repainted, color sanded and buffed, all systems gone through, instruments restored, new windshield, new shocks, suspension, hydraulics, fuels systems have been gone through, new wire loom, battery and tires. The interior has been completed re-trimmed in all proper German materials. There are no disappointments in this 356 C! You will be driving in comfort and class with your restored Blaupunkt AM/FM radio (which has been digitized for maximum enjoyment), and the original headrests. It is presented in its original colors and comes with a Kardex build sheet.
