Click here to download printer friendly versionThe Porsche 356 was a direct hit and proved a success on race tracks as well. One of the races in which the 356 was successful in was the Carrera PanAmericana and this made Porsche decide to name one of his new 356 models 'Carrera'. This new model featured a special engine with four overhead camshafts designed by Ernst Fuhrman. The Carrera versions of the 356 are by far the most sought after versions. The Carrera designation stuck and is still used to this date.
