Years ahead in engineering, miles ahead on the road’ was the slogan used by US Porsche distributor, Hoffman in his advertising campaign for Road & Track magazine (1955) and this captures the essence of the Porsche 356. First produced in Austria from 1948-49 and then in Germany from 1950-55, the 356 was Porsche’s first production car. In an era when many other automotive manufacturers were employing larger engines to gain performance, Porsche concentrated on balance and lightness to achieve the same goals.
In late 1955 the 356A was introduced, distinguishable with its curved windscreen. The A was the first road going Porsche to offer the Carrera four-cam engine as an option. This model is of the T2 variant, revised in 1957 to incorporate its exhausts through the rear bumper over-riders. The Speedster version offered some significant differences to it coupé and cabriolet siblings, with a low removable windscreen for weekend racing, fixed bucket seats and side curtains instead of wind-up windows.
