Because of Bruce s book 911 Performance Handbook plus. all the writing he did for magazines on later Porsches most. do not think of Bruce as a 356 enthusiast The reality is that. Bruce had a 356A coupe followed by a 356 T6 B coupe a. 1964 SC GT coupe and finally a 356A Speedster Each of. these except for the Speedster was his only car at the time. These were driven in all kinds of weather every day The. car port at our Palo Alto rented house was unusual not too. many other houses in the area had a pair of 1964 SC GT s tive member of the team which raced from local California. parked in their car port Bruce s was silver mine was white tracks all the way to Le Mans.
