Is there a Porsche Fan In the world that deserves this Porsche art print more than you?
One of only fifteen production Carrera Pre-A 1500 GS Speedsters were built in 1955.
Porsche’s magnificent and complex Carrera “Four-cam” engine was laid out in the early 1950s, penned by Dr. Ernst Führmann to power the little 550 Spyder, the company’s first thorough-bred race car. This brilliant engineer would later joke that he called it the “Drawer motor” because he had to slip his design paperwork into his drafting desk drawer whenever Dr. Ferdinand Porsche entered his office – the project had not yet been approved!
After the 550’s class wins in the Carrera Panamerica Mexican road races, Porsche decided to make this potent little engine available in its production coupes and open-topped Speedsters and Cabriolets.
These special and very expensive automobiles would carry the name “Carrera” in recognition of those racing successes, and they are both extremely rare and much sought-after today.
The first pushrod-engined Porsche Speedster appeared in 1954, after the company’s New York importer, Max Hoffman, and its West coast distributor John von Neumann encouraged the factory to offer a lightweight and spartan sports roadster to better compete in terms of price with the popular British and Italian sports cars of the day.
Speedsters quickly established themselves as the cars to beat in their respective classes. After a 356 coupe fitted with a Fuhrmann engine won the grueling Líege-Rome-Líege Rally in 1954, Porsche installed a Type 547 four-cam into a Speedster for testing, and similar engines were fitted to a pair of 356 coupes. Low-volume production – just a hundred units - began soon afterward.
The first 356 Carrera Pre-A Speedster intended for public sale was completed in July of 1955, wrote Marco Marinello in the definitive Porsche Speedster Type 540, and data compiled by the factory’s Olaf Lang places the total of Carrera Speedsters completed at 148.
Visually, these special cars were nearly identical to standard Speedsters fitted with less-powerful pushrod engines; only small gold scripts on the front fenders and tail, along with a few extra switches on the dashboard, signaled what lay beneath the engine cover. The quad-overhead cams were driven by a combination of quill-shafts - one them hollow and containing a round piece of birch hardwood, and spiral bevel gears.
The built-up Hirth-patent crankshaft and one-piece connecting rods ran in roller bearings. Lubrication was by dry-sump and there was dual ignition, the distributors initially being driven from the ends of the intake cams. The 1.5-litre Type 547 developed a lusty 100 bhp at 6200 rpm, and the engine thrived at high rotational speeds.
In such a lightweight chassis, performance was thrilling: In GT Speedster form with 110 hp, The Carrera’s first gear was good for 65 kph (40 mph), second to 112 (70 mph), third brought 160 (100 mph), and almost 193 (120 mph) flat out.

Michael R. Greenwich Conn. Porsche 356 owner.
I am a beginning art collector and I am well pleased with Newbury Press. They have been professional and patient, helping me through the ordering process. They did everything just as they said . The order even arrived a few days early. I have another order on the way and I have no worries that the process will have any problems. The order I received was made to be signed for and I truly believe that they have good security measures to make sure there are no snafus. And equally important, my product was in very good shape. Overall I would recommend this company to anyone looking to buy Porsche art. I can't wait to get my next package because I truly believe that I will be just as pleased.. I look forward to doing more business with them in the future. I would say they deserve an A+ rating.

Newbury Press has been one of the most impressive companies I have ever worked with. I have transacted multi million dollar collectibles and have received worse support, than the few thousand dollars I have spent with Newbury. This is a true rarity in today’s business world. Big or small purchases it doesn't matter Newbury Press, Alfred in particular is great to work with.
