What would the Hans-Peter Porsche Traumwerk be without dream cars? We will introduce a new Traumwerk-Car every month.
You will find the original vehicle as a special highlight in our Achter. And for everyone who doesn’t make it into our exhibition at the moment, feel free to check this page regularly.
PORSCHE 356 A CARRERA
YEAR 1956 – 1498 CM3
100 PS / 73 KW – 198 KM/H
4 CYLINDER BOXER
In the year 1956, the Porsche 356 was replaced by the extensively further developed 356 A. This was offered with five different four-cylinder engines from the market launch.
This particularly sporty variant was given the additional designation “Carrera” for the first time – this refers to the Mexican road race “Carrera Panamericana” of the 1950s, in which Porsche achieved some class successes. These models were powered by a so-called Fuhrmann engine. With a comparatively small 1.5l engine, Porsche was close on the heels of the much more powerful Ferraris with 4.5l displacement.
Visually, the A-Series differed among other things. through a one-piece, curved panoramic windshield from the first 356. The front indicators were always integrated into the horn grilles and all models had a modified hood handle with the Porsche logotype embedded.
