Carrera. The name has graced thousands of Porsche models throughout history, derived from the name of the famous Mexican race, La Carrera Panamericana. The Carrera name appeared on some 356 models with the four cam motor, referred to as the Fuhrmann engine, after the engineer who designed it, Dr. Ernst Fuhrmann. The engine could be thought of as the 911 Turbo of its day, since it cost nearly double that of a Super 90 with the pushrod engine. Originally designed for competition, the four cam didn’t sell in large numbers and as a result, it has become amongst the most valuable of the 356 range. This 356B Carrera is for sale at Canepa out in California. Originally sold to a dealer in Italy, it spent a fair amount of years in The Porsche Museum of Japan collection before coming to the US for a restoration.
