One example is the moveable body sections made of aluminum. Other pioneering features include the safety steering system with hydraulic shock absorbers and the optimized cooling of the brakes.

Also new are the different transmission ratios. From 1955 on, all vehicles with a racing engine have the word "Carrera" added to their name.

The Porsche 356 is one of the most important designs in automotive history. Classical, streamlined, elegant, iconic, the 356 simply got better and better. This 356 Carrera 2000 exemplifies Mies dictum, form follows function. Less is more. This Porsche is iconic.
