Porsche 356 A 1600 T2 1957 For Sale
|The Porsche 356 was the first Porsche production car. It was produced by the Austrian Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH, which earlier worked on the Porsche 360 Cisitalia and Volkswagen Beetle, as well as the Auto Union Grand Prix cars. After Ferdinand Porsche was released from a French prison after the war, production of the Porsche 356 was taken over by Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH in Germany. In total about 50 cars were produced by the Austrian factory.|
The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel drive two-door car, available in coupé and convertible versions. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity.
From the early 1100 cc beginnings, the overall shape of the 356 remained more or less the same. In 1951, 1300 and 1500 cc more powerful engines were introduced. By late 1952 the divided windscreen was gone, replaced by a V-shaped unit which fit into the same opening. In 1953, the 1300 S or Super was introduced, and the 1100 cc engine was dropped. In late 1954 Max Hoffman, the sole US importer of Porsches, convinced Porsche to build a stripped down roadster version with minimal equipment and a cut-down windscreen, the Speedster. Towards the end of the original 356's time Hoffman, wanting a model name rather than just a number got the factory to use the name “Continental” which was applied mostly to cars sold in the United States. Ford, makers of the Lincoln Continental, sued. Because of this the name was used only in 1955 for 1956, the equivalent version was briefly sold as the “European”.
In late 1955, with numerous small but significant changes, the 356 A was introduced. Its internal factory designation, “Type 1”, gave rise to its nickname “T1” among enthusiasts. In early 1957 a second revision of the 356 A was produced, known as Type 2.
