The “Clever” idea
356 B 2000 GS Carrera GT
Porsche seeks to respond to technological challenges with the best, rather than the quickest, solution. The “Clever” idea therefore presents Porsche’s engineering skills.
Since 1971 the sports car manufacturer’s engineers have been developing and optimising technical solutions at the Research and Development Centre in Weissach. They carry on the tradition of attention to technical detail first nurtured by Ferdinand Porsche. The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB), VarioCam valve control and the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) are just a few examples of the technologies developed by Porsche. The theme is deepened by the Porsche 356 B 2000 GS Carrera GT exhibit, which featured a locking-synchromesh gearbox as long ago as 1960. By 1960, the transmission in the Porsche 356 B 2000 GS Carrera GT already featured locking synchronisation.
