Model History: The Porsche 356 was launched in 1948 as the first series model of the sports car brand from Zuffenhausen and is also referred to as the “original Porsche”. The first series (“Pre-A”) was produced until 1955. In October of that year, the 356 A was presented as a modified successor. The successful Porsche 356 series was continued until 1965 in the development stages B, C and SC. The engine was always an air-cooled four-cylinder boxer with various power levels. The available body styles were Coupé, Cabriolet, Speedster and at times Convertible D. It was not until 1963 that the 356 was replaced by the Porsche 901/911
Variant Speedster: In 1954, the model range was expanded by the Speedster variant. Initially built for export only, it goes back to the US importer Max Hoffman, who wanted a simple basic model for the US market. In particular individualists on the West Coast appreciated the excellent driving characteristics of the compact fast sports car and made Porsche popular and successful in the USA. The open sports car had a flatter windscreen. The soft top is lower than on the standard convertible and fully retractable. The doors have simple plug-in windows instead of crank windows. Its sporty note is underpinned by the bucket seats.
