Porsche’s popular 356 Roadster was introduced for the 1960 model year as a replacement for the one-year-only Convertible D, the Speedster’s more civilized successor. The new T5 Roadster brought several marked changes in appearance: the front fenders and headlamps were raised, as were both the front and rear bumpers to better deal with urban parking. New vertical bumper guards also helped in that respect. Brake-cooling intakes were added to the nose below the front bumper, helping assist the updated cast-aluminum Alfin brake drums with iron liners.

The new Roadster shared many of the comfort attributes of the Convertible D (and more expensive Cabriolets), including roll-up windows, adjustable seats, and a well-constructed convertible top with a tan-painted frame and wraparound plastic rear window. For those with competition in mind, the windshield could be removed fairly easily, a boon given roadsters, like the Speedster and Convertible D before them, remained popular in amateur sports car racing worldwide. Unsurprisingly, the model attracted celebrities like Steve McQueen and Janis Joplin and remains a highly desirable variant of the vaunted 356 to this day.
