Our thanks to Mr. Manos and the whole Alex Manos team. The smoothest experience I ever had either buying or selling a car. I strongly recommend anyone with a classic car for sale to give Alex a call.

Would do it all over again. He was fair and honest. I would work with them again. Thanks Alex!Porsche only introduced the C when the was just about to hit the market inupgrading the old model with such extras as unassisted disc brakes all around, as well as an option of the most powerful pushrod engine Porsche had ever produced, the 95 hp "SC.
Devon's is not an SC. Instead, it's a numbers-matching father and son project that started out as a rusty yellow C a few years back. Since then, its engine has been rebuilt and bored to cc by a Hungarian mechanic, allowing the flat-four to produce a whopping 73 horsepower, at least.
As you can tell, it's also painted black now, but the factory four-speed and the 6V electric system have been retained, just like all the rest of the stock components.
And when it all fails, removing the engine for a major overhaul will only take about nine minutes. That's German engineering, right there. Join Now. New Cars. Car Culture.

The chassis was a completely new design, as was the 's body, designed by Porsche employee Erwin Komenda. At the same time, certain mechanical components, including the engine case and some suspension components, were based on and initially sourced from Volkswagen. Ferry Porsche described the thinking behind the development of the in an interview with the editor of "Panorama", the PCA magazine, in September I had always driven very speedy cars.
By the end of the war, I had a Volkswagen Cabriolet with a supercharged engine, and that was the basic idea. I saw that if you had enough power in a small car, it is nicer to drive than if you have a big car which is also overpowered. And it is more fun. On this basic idea, we started the first Porsche prototype. The first was road certified in Austria on June 8,and was entered in a race in Innsbruck, where it won its class. Volkswagen and Porsche shared fewer parts as the s progressed.
The aluminum-bodied cars from that very small company are what are now referred to as "prototypes". Porsche contracted Reutter to build the steel bodies and eventually bought the Reutter company in Little noticed at its inception, mostly by a small number of auto racing enthusiasts, the first s sold primarily in Austria and Germany.

To distinguish among the major revisions of the model, s are generally classified into a few major groups. The A was the first road going Porsche to offer the Carrera four-cam engine as an option.
Although the used numerous components, Porsche did not intend for the to replace the When the decision was made to replace thethe later was the road car designed to carry the Porsche name forward. In late the split windscreen was replaced by a slightly V-shaped, single windshield, which fit into the same shape opening. In late Max Hoffmanthe sole US importer of Porsches, convinced Porsche to build a stripped down roadster version with minimal equipment and a cut-down windscreen.
