The book about the Porsche 356 made by Reutter
Porsche and Reutter – this cooperation has written automotive history. On more than 300 pages and with 500 illustrations, Porsche 356. Made by Reutter tells an incomparable success story: The starting signal was given by the work on precursors and prototypes of the Volkswagen in the 1930s. Then the Reutter body shop and the Porsche design office began to develop the first models for the Porsche 356. Frank Jung documents the entire production period of the Porsche 356 from 1949 to 1964 in all its development phases up to the successful 911 model. Former employees and contemporary witnesses report on the creation process of the sports car legend, which is captured with unique images and texts.
The Porsche 356 is not just any sports car. It resembles a myth, a legend. It was born out of the collaboration between two Stuttgart-based automotive companies that made history together: Porsche and Reutter.
Frank Jung, great-grandson of company founder Albert Reutter and head of the Porsche AG Historical Archive since 2018, has set out on the trail of this legendary joint production. With many historical photos and previously unpublished documents, this book lets you take part in the exciting creation of the Porsche 356.
