The Porsche 911 Carrera…..Since the Mexican government canceled Carrera Panamericana—probably the most dangerous race of its time down the Pan-American Highway—in advance of the 1955 running, the Spanish word Carrera “race” has been connected with Porsche. In fact, Porsche really made it as its own. Similar to the word “Targa” and the Targa Florio, Porsche chose to name its most interesting models after racing events where Porsche had achieved a huge amount of success. In their tenth year anniversary of the 911, Porsche christened their new top of the line performance model as the Carrera, which they also scripted as a logo on the sides of their most exciting limited-production model. Demoting the 911 S from the senior ranks, they catapulted off the success of the 2.7-liter engine from 1973 and from the RS Carrera. And they established—along with a series of competition 3.0 Carrera RS, RSR, and IROC models-that the Carrera was the best Porsche you could buy.
We here at Street Scenes Auto had the privilege of completely restoring this one for our good friend Adam Corkhill Here are some pics of the process!
