or how was it then?
Since its inception in 1950, the Porsche 356 has been an extremely successful sports car in all its variants in racing on international markets. 1959 appeared the extensively revised successor of the 356 A, the 356 B, externally recognizable by the higher set and more dimensioned bumpers, as well as the higher set headlights. Available were various engine powers of 60, 75 and 90 hp and 115 hp of the 356 Carrera with vertical shaft motor. The 356 B T5 was available in the body variants Coupé, Cabriolet and Roadster. The Roadster was the successor of the 356 Convertible and differs from the Cabriolet as follows: The front separate windscreen frame is screwed and chromed as the Speedster, or convertible. The hood is unlined with open top linkage and thus fully retractable. The 356 Roadster was, as in the years before the Speedster, often used in racing.
or what else can he do?
The Porsche 356 conveys the incomparable and original driving pleasure that decades ago established the Porsche myth. More than in any other sports car of the time, one also senses the racing genes in the production cars, which are not documented by sheer size and engine power, but by a reduction in format and weight. And it is the resulting driving characteristics that always inspire. "Driving in its most beautiful form" was then as today no empty buzzword.
