Description

A unique and exclusive opportunity to add an incredibly rare Porsche to your premium collection.
The epitome off sportiness of all 356 incarnations bare the Carrera name and where powered by the Famous Fuhrman engine named after its developer. When new the Carrera 2 was more than twice the price of the standard 356B 1600 and was the most expensive Porsche on the line-up.
Its 2000cc GS engine with its horizontally opposed four-cylinders , who was derived from the legendary 550 speedsters offered an unseen 130bhp that offers this Porsche and incredible handling even compared to today’s standard restrained by its four wheel disc brakes.
Some subtle changes on the outside complete the package. The rear bumper sports the front bumper guards excluding the exhaust ports. On the front the horn grilles are deleted to improve airflow to the 2 extra oil radiators.
This fine example offered here is full matching numbers and one off only 63 build. Has undergone a major nut and bolt restoration and could easily be better than when it left the factory.
All of this is packed in a pristine heron-grey paint finished of with its black leather interior.
It comes with its original chrome wheels and electric antenna as stated on the factory certificate of authenticity. Also you’ll received its fully documented history files together with all restoration invoices and fully documented photobook of all the work that has been done, from its bear shell to its final glory.
In short: you simply won’t find any other as fine example of a 356 carrera 2 convertible for sale anywhere and an highly praised investment that can actually be enjoyed to the fullest.
