This very special Porsche 356 was delivered on the 3rd of May 1955 by Reutter coachbuilding to Porsche but was released from Porsche two months later on the 11th of July. This abnormal delivery delay was founded in the problem of mounting the brand new Fuhrmann four-cam engine in a street useable 356 body as previously only the 550 Spyder had this engine. This is the first of five coupes and a Speedster which received the 547 engine from the factory in the Rennsport version and consequently it is the first 356 with the Carrera name. The first of many named Porsche 'Carreras'. The first owner, Reinhard Schmidt, owned the car until he ordered a new 356 and sold this car to a United States serviceman, then with a push rod engine in it. It remained in the serviceman's family for 55 years. Only during the its sale in 2014 did the son of the longtime owner discover that his father owned the first 356 Carrera produced.
