The Porsche 356 was the company’s first production automobile.
It was a lightweight and nimble handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2 door sports car, available in hardtop and convertible configurations.
Design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity.
Production ended in April of 1965, although 1963 was the last year for the 356B, soon succeeded by the 356C.
