We don’t really do revisits much anymore, but I wanted to make an exception here because it’s such a great car, so rare and beautiful, and the price has changed dramatically from when I originally featured it last November. The original listing for this Oslo Blue 1963 Porsche 356B Carrera 2 Coupe had it priced at $839K. I said at the time that the price was higher than just about any other Carrera 2 auction I’d seen and it remained on eBay for a while going nowhere. It also had been listed with no description and that wasn’t helping. Here it is priced somewhat more reasonably at $565K, and we’re provided with some of the car’s history to help support its (still) very high price. At the very least we’re off to a much better start.

This nicely optioned T6 Carrera 2 was originally delivered to Hanover, Germany, but delivered to the United States in 1966 to its second owner and active PCA member, Arthur Foyt. In 1971 German, Eugene Deutsch, bought the Carrera 2 and retained it for most of it’s life.
The car underwent a lengthy restoration beginning in 1998. It was stripped to bare metal and repainted to its original Oslo Blue, which remains in great shape today, and the interior has been redone by noted 356 experts. This spectacular 356 is powered by a correct 587/1 four-cam engine that was built by the best; the late Billy Doyle of Rennwagen Motor Company and runs fantastic. His work lives on!
Though restored over 10 years ago, this Carrera 2 remains in superb overall condition and performs as well as any 356 you will drive.
