Seller's Notes

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, four-cam Carrera 2 - the most advanced 356 ever built.
