Porsche 356 1300 ~ 1951-1955

Initially only available with an 1100cc engine, in 1951 Porsche offered the 356 with a more powerful 1300cc engine, facilitated by changing the bore and stroke from 64x73.5mm to 64x80mm. However, at the same time, the compression ratio fell from 7.0:1 to 6.5:1, so the power only increased by 4bhp to 44bhp. Porsche 356 1300
