Porsche Carrera
The Porsche 4-cam motor and the early years of Porsche motorsports from the 356 and the 550 Spyder to the 904 Carrera GTS. The motors, the cars, the pilots and the results for race cars built from 1953-1965

Carrera - this term is as much part of the Porsche vocabulary as is “Turbo” or “911”. lt roots in a race win of a Porsche 550 Spyder at the legendary Carrera Panamericana in Mexico in 1954. The racing engine they used was unique: termed “Carrera motor”, it became part of automobile history. The remarkably powerful engine with four camshafts, constructed by Dr. Ernst Fuhrmann, was used successfully in a row of famous Porsche racing cars, from the 356 Carrera to the 550 and 718 Spyder to the 904 Carrera GTS.

The Porsche archive and two exceptional authors worked together on the history of this racing engine and its cars. Rolf Sprenger, Porsche employee for 40 years, explains the technological development of the “Fuhrmann engine”, which was used from 1953 to 1965, so that laymen and experts alike comprehend its impressive technological refinement. Along with that, lots of previously unpublished documents and photos from the factory's archive are presented - unveiling exceptional backstage views of the then young brand Porsche, plus interviews with directly involved contemporary witnesses. Moreover, US-American Porsche expert Steve Heinrichs researched every single race of all Porsche racing cars with Carrera engine- there where about 14 000 - so that this book gives the first full account on the history of those races. ln doing so, he gained a full documentation of all chassis and engine numbers with condition on delivery and motorsports' history. Undoubtedly, this bilingual reference book will cause a great sensation in the Porsche community worldwide.
