The Porsche 356 1500 Cabriolet presented here was delivered to Düsseldorf on October 6th, 1953. From the factory it was equipped with the second most powerful engine, a 1500 engine with 55 hp (40 kW).
For greater driving pleasure, it was replaced in the past by a contemporary 1500 Super engine, one of four engines available at the time.
The 1500 Super was the top-of-the-line engine, which achieved a full 70 hp (51 kW) at 5,000 rpm thanks to higher compression and a larger carburettor. Thanks to excellent dynamics, well-run-in 356 1500 Supers run at speeds of over 180 km/h. Tempo 100 is reached from a standstill in just 14.0 seconds.
Three previous owners were noted chronologically on the data card of the Porsche works archive – a rarity! Without exception, these come from Germany. The last owner noted there from Nieder-Olm can also be found in the documentation on an old vehicle registration document.
In 1992, the former president of the 356 Club bought the vehicle and had it extensively restored by a competent Porsche specialist in Bologna.
The vehicle has been one of our customers since 2012 and has a complete owner history. It was always approved in Germany!
We are pleased to be able to offer you such a beautiful sports car.
