In 1954, Porsche works driver Hans Herrmann pedalled the 550/1500 RS Spyder to an astonishing third overall in the infamous Carrera Panamericana.

Porsche took part in this demanding and dangerous Mexican road race in order to raise its profile in the lucrative North American market. Following its success here, ‘Carrera’ was adopted as the nomenclature of all its sporting road and race variants.
