1953 Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta

Giovanni Moretti made his name with racing engines for motorcycles. Following World War II, he began making small automobiles, the first powered by his own vertical twin-cylinder engine. In 1950, he developed a 4-cylinder overhead-cam engine, in both 600-cc and 750-cc sizes. Built on a backbone chassis, it was a […]

1950 Nash-Healey Roadster

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Supersport Cabriolet

Porsche revived the Carrera name — previously used for the competition-orientated versions of the preceding 356 — for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973. It applied the evocative title to all 911 models, coincidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-liter engine, from 1984. Not merely enlarged, the new engine […]

1967 Toyota 2000GT

1954 Chrysler GS-1 Special by Ghia

During the 1950s, Italian coachbuilder Ghia built numerous one-off “dream cars” for Chrysler Corporation.
