History

Porsche has the Speedster to thank for their success in the United States. But there was the luxury version was called the 356A Convertible available for nearly $1,000 more, which included a padded headliner, reclining front seats, rear seat bench, clock, glove box, the cigarette lighter, dash light, side vent windows & roll-up windows.

It could be argued that Porsche sales might not have ever taken off in the fiercely competitive U.S. market. Boasting creature comforts with excellent driving characteristics, it helped cement Porsche’s reputation in the United States and earned it a hugely desirable portion of the sports car market at a time when the motto of most British marques was “export or die.”
