Porsche 356 A 1955-1959
To quote the brochure: “The knowledge gained from the manufacture of racing cars, and the invaluable experience accumulated over many years have all been incorporated in this successful design. Constant improvements to detail have been made on the Porsche car, and in its present form it may be considered to have reached a state of perfection. No changes have been made in the external shape of the vehicle, since this was aerodynamically the best solution, and its undated elegant form has become a symbol of technical beauty in our age”.
The 356 A was available with a 1300, 1300 S, 1600 or 1600 S engine.
