We report on electron transport measurements in high-quality carbon nanotube devices with a total transmission of about 1/2. At liquid helium temperature the linear conductance oscillates with moderate amplitude as a function of the gate voltage around an average value of the conductance quantum. Upon decreasing temperature, we observe an intriguing fourfold increase in the period of the oscillations accompanied by an enhancement in their amplitude. While the high-temperature oscillations are suggestive of charging effects in an open interacting quantum dot, the low-temperature transport characteristics is reminiscent of single-particle Fabry-P\'erot interference in a carbon nanotube waveguide. A similar crossover is observed in the low-temperature differential conductance by tuning the source-drain voltage. We reconcile these observations by attributing the four-fold increase at low energies to the interplay of interactions and quantum fluctuations, leading to a correlated Fabry-P\'erot regime.
