The Porsche 356. The car that started it all for Porsche .. Ferdinand Porsche Senior, had already designed the car in 1931 that would later serve as the Volkswagen Beetle. His son, Ferry Porsche, laid the foundation for the Porsche 356 in 1939. All technology came initially from Volkswagen, but this soon became very different. Porsche made adjustments to the engine, gearbox, interior and steering. Later, almost everything was tackled and Porsche ‘own’.
Thanks to the Second World War, the entire concept went on the bookshelf until 1948. The first prototypes were born in that year. The new Porsches were sold very well; the new owners were very impressed with the aerodynamics, handling and build quality. Nevertheless, the 356s were easy to use in all-day traffic. Basic principles that Porsche pursues to this day.
Our model, the 356 B (T6) was born in Stuttgart in 1962. It was also delivered there, which makes it an original German-delivered Porsche, in the city of origin! This generation received a fuel cap in the right front fender and two cooling grilles in the nose. In addition, the interior received a freshening up and a rear seat. Ours is in actual competition condition and has comprehensive documentation. In addition to all maintenance invoices, appraisal reports, restoration report and associated bills, we also have a summary with the owners (including current owner; 3) and all kilometers driven.
In short, a Stuttgart Cool Classic that we (almost) never encounter! Both rationally and emotionally a perfect candidate for the enthusiast!
