Porsche 356 C

Porsche 356 C

In model year 1964, the 356 C replaced the 356 B. The range of engines was reduced to three and the existing 60 hp variant was discontinued. Instead, the 75 hp engine of the B 1600 Super represented the entry-level engine. The top-of-the-range engine in the 356 C 2000 GS Carrera delivered a power output of 130 hp.

Visually, there was very little difference between the C series and the B series. One striking change was the modified rims with flatter hub caps without Porsche Crest. The new hub cap design was the result of the fact that all 356 models were now equipped with disc brakes as standard. The B type also featured a round exterior mirror.

The last Porsche 356 C was delivered in May 1966.

All 356 generations were also available in an open-top version (Cabriolet, Speedster or Roadster).

From the type 365 A onwards, particularly sporty versions were given the additional designation "Carrera" and were powered by a Fuhrmann engine.

This power unit, named after designer Ernst Fuhrmann, was characterised by four overhead camshafts, which were driven by bevel-gear shafts. The engine also featured a dual ignition with two separate distributors.
