The Porsche 356 is a luxury sports car which was first produced by Austrian company Porsche Konstruktionen (1948-1949), and then by German company Dr, Ing Porsche Gmbh (1950-1965).
It was Porsche’s first production automobile.
The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and open configurations.
By the early 1950s the 356 had gained some renown among enthusiasts on both sides of the Atlantic for its aerodynamics, handling, and excellent build quality.
Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity.
For 1960, Porsche introduced the new T-5 body style, designating the model 356B. The Convertible D was discontinued, replaced by the Roadster, still built by “Drauz”. The roadster featured glass roll-up side windows, replacing the side-curtain feature from the convertible D and speedster.
This car benefits from an older complete restoration that has stood up very well. Repainted in its original “Slate Grey”color, showing very minimal wear.
