Jay Leno's 1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 is Another Car We Want


The Porsche 356 was the precursor to the 911 and it’s a car that purists like Leno lust over.

This is the car to buy if you wanted to own the fastest road-going Porsche in 1963. The Porsche 356 Carrera 2 was the Porsche 911 Turbo of its day, so of course Jay Leno owns one that has been beautifully restored. Renowned Porsche purist, John Willhoit, was the car’s former owner and restorer who sold the car to the guy that sold it to Leno back in the seventies for $16,000, a huge sum of money for a car if you consider a Lamborghini Miura was $22k at the time.

Leno waxes lyrical with Willhoit about the twin-cam powered Porsche in his garage before going for a spin. Check out the video to see why the Denim Chin calls the Porsche 356 “one of the most beautiful driving cars of all time.”
