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 in the eighties by Tanner in Switzerland, and upgraded from GS to GT specification at the same time. This means it got aluminium doors, bonnet and engine cover, perspex side windows, Weber carburettors, 80 litre petrol tank, slightly wider wheels, improved brakes and a Sebring sports exhaust. The engine, which was in period replaced by a very rare 692/0 example (one of only 20 examples made), produces approximately 130 bhp. This engine was overhauled again in 2008 by famous 356 Carrera specialist Karl Hloch, and serviced again by him in 2012. This 356 has participated in many prestigious events : 4 x Mille Miglia (1987, 1988, 2003 and 2012), 3 x Tour Auto (1992, 1993 and 1994) and 2 x Le Mans Classic (2008 and 2010). It comes with FIA HTP Appendix K, FIVA passport Cat. A3 and a huge file full of invoices and magazine articles. The Porsche has a Belgian registration. The car still looks fantastic, although the restoration was done more then 30 years ago.
If you are looking for a very correct Porsche 356 Carrera GS/GT with a good documented history, then this example is the right candidate. It can be used for almost any event, and is 100% ready for use on the road or the track. It looks fantastic in Erdbeerrot, and it is a sensational car to drive. These Carrera's come rarely available, and are very sought after among collectors. A unique opportunity.
