The 356 History
The Porsche 356 was a sports car
produced from 1948 through 1965. It was
Porsche's first production automobile.
The first Porsche 356 was debuted on
June 8, 1948, using many Volkswagen
parts for manufacturing economy.
However, Porsche quickly refined the car
with a focus on performance, so that by
the late 50's few parts were shared in
common between the two marquees and it
became the Swiss watch of auto-motive
design. The 356 has always been quite
popular with the motor press, and in
2004 Sports Car International ranked the
356C tenth on their list of Top Sports
Cars of the 1960s.
