Sold for $341,000 at 2013 Gooding and Company - The Amelia Island Auction.
The Carrera named bestowed to Porsche automobiles was in honor of the rugged Carrera Panamericana Mexican road race. The Carrera was more than just a name; they signified a race-bred version of Porsche's flat-four engine devised by Dr. Ernst Fuhrmann, using twin ignition, two dual-throat carburetors, and four-cam valve actuation rather than single-cam pushrods.

Porsche introduced the latest version of the Carrera at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September of 1961. It wore the T-6 Reutter body style add was powered by an enlarged two-liter version of furhmann's four-cam flat four, designated Type 587/1. The 2000 GS or Carrera 2 (so named for its two-liter displacement) was the fastest 356 road car ever built. Production was limited with just 436 examples produced, of which 310 were built on the earlier 356 B platform. The Carrera 2 was also the first production Porsche to be given disc brakes.

This Carrera 2 example wears its original body panels and has been given a recent factory-correct restoration. This Porsche was optioned with extensive sonderausfuhrung (special equipment), including black leather upholstery, a velour-lined glove compartment, an Eberspacher auxiliary gasoline heater, Hella 128 driving lamps, Hella accessory interior lamps, Coco floor mats, outside temperature thermometer, dual loudspeakers, Talbot mirrors, armrests and a radio. The car also has disc brakes, a VDM wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a louvered rear apron with tailpipe valances.

This Porsche was purchased from a South Carolina-based owned by Dr. Phillip Scheinberg of Santa Barbara, California in the early 1980s. Dr. Scheinberg used the car as a daily driver for 10 years before selling it to an owner in Texas. By the late 1990s, the Carrera was owned by Jason Kim, who in 2000 sold it to a fellow Porsche connoisseur, Roland 'Roll' Resos. At the time, chassis number 120613 lacked its original engine, but Mr. Resos fortunately possessed a proper 587/1 motor, engine number 97203, which he had purchased as a freestanding component in the early 1980s. Porsche engine specialist Bill Doyle was entrusted to rebuild the engine.

Mr. Resos had the matching-numbers body panels repainted in the original factory color, bright while, factory code 67392. The color was not a standard Porsche option in 1962 and must have been custom-ordered by the first buyer. The car has its original black leather and the dashboard was repainted in its original color. The European-specification speedometer - then displaying just 70,333 km (43,677 miles) - was replaced with an American-spec gauge granded in miles.

A restoration was completed in 2009 and then shown at the 2009 Quail Motorsports Gathering as well as the Rennsport Reunion. In October 2011, the car participated in the Porsche Racecar Classic at The Quail Lodge, and was also the subject of a feature article in the August 2012 issue of Excellence magazine.

This Porsche is an early Carrera 2 production model, one of the first 100 homologated chassis manufactured during the model's first three months of production, and one of just 133 examples built in 1962. The engine has accumulated 1,500 miles since the engine restoration.
