1956 Porsche 356 A Carrera 1500 GS Coupe

100 hp doesn't sound like much, but when your car weighs right at 1,800 pounds, it's not as bad as you might think. Indeed, the 1956 Porsche 356 A Carrera 1500 GS Coupe was considered blistering for its time, using its Type 547/1 engine and Type 644 transmission to happily run 100 mph for extended periods, and reach a top speed of nearly 120 mph. This particular example was completely restored in Italy during 2005 and 2006, fitted with a series-correct replacement engine that itself was completely rebuilt, and carries with it a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
