Under the rear hood resided the familiar Beetle-based air-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. Porsche engineers had reduced its displacement to 1,086 cubic centimeters (1.1 liters) from the original 1,131 so it could compete in the 1,100-c.c. racing class. To compensate for the smaller size, a redesigned cylinder head gave an output of 40 horsepower (up from 25). Along with the 356╒s 84-mph top speed, there was also plenty of stopping power, thanks to hydraulic drum brakes instead of the Beetle╒s cable-operated system.
