Carrera is Spanish and refers to âracingâ. Carrera Panamericana was the legendary road race trough Mexico in the early 1950`s. Porsche participated in this extreme, over 3000 km long road race in 1952-1954 with the 356 and 550 models. The success of the factory in this epic race prompted the adoption of the Carrera name to its top of the range models. We restore classic Porsches in the old Carrera spirit respecting their racing heritage.
