Magazine Extras:
Powering into its forty-fifth year, the Carrera 3.0 was the subject of low-volume production. The model is hardly known outside Porsche circles, but links the mighty Carrera RS 2.7 with the all-conquering SC and Carrera 3.2. In this issue of Classic Porsche, we take time out to re-evaluate the Carrera 3.0 and its significance in the Porsche product portfolio. Similarly, we look at the origins of the 356 Speedster, starting with the bespoke 1951 Sauter roadster, an extraordinary car much admired by Porsche, but one which found its way into an American junkyard. Saved from scrap are the three finalists in the latest Porsche Classic Restoration Competition. Along with a standout runner-up, this trio of awe-inspiring builds is showcased in these very pages, along with an ST-inspired 911 2.7 backdate and a 356 Outlaw equipped with an amazing radial engine.

Issue Summary:
Classic Porsche celebrates forty-five years of Carrera 3.0, an unsung hero of the 911 back catalogue and the air-cooled Porsche setting a blueprint for the big-selling SC and Carrera 3.2.

Top 3 Features:
DRIVING AMBITION - Enabled by the turbocharged 930, but sharing plenty in common with the Carrera RS 2.7, the Carrera 3.0 is, in many respects, the perfect air-cooled 911.

ENIGMATIC MODEL - Only sixteen examples of the America Roadster were produced, setting the pattern for the 356 Speedsters to come. A little-known 356 Cabriolet-based private commission for racing driver, Heinrich Sauer, however, set the template in 1951.

RACE ODDITY - When is a Porsche not a Porsche? Classic Porsche visits Germany to spend quality time with a KMW SP20, a little-known Porsche-badged rarity, but one which exerted big influence on the development of Stuttgart’s legendary Group C sports prototypes.
