The 1963 356 Carrera 2 Porsche is a vehicle of a remarkable vintage.

About 445 of the cars were produced, mainly produced to confirm the cars' racing abilities. The speedy automobiles were created with the same engines used in the racing 904 Porsche and were built with aluminum doors, hoods and deck lids, to make the cars lighter and faster.

The estimated value of these fast and very rare automobiles is in excess of $200,000.

Given the value of the car, its owner wishes to remain unidentified.
