The 356 was created by Ferdinand Ferry Porsche, son of Ferdinand Porsche Senior. Originally conceived as a small, lightweight sports car that shared design characteristics of the Porsche-designed Volkswagen Beetle that was developed prior to World War II. Believed to have taken its name from being the three hundred and fifty-sixth Porsche design, the 356 was the first automobile to bear the Porsche name. Production began in 1948, with the first cars being built with aluminum bodies and constructed in Austria; production eventually switched to Germany after Porsche contracted Reutter Coachworks to build the 356 bodies. In 1951, the 356 took a class win at LeMans, and thanks to the efforts of U.S. Importer, Max Hoffman, the Porsche brand had won over motoring enthusiasts from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Of all the 356 variants one of the most coveted is the Reutter bodied Cabriolet. While available during the entire 356 productions, most are quick to point out that the Reutter lines compliment the first generation 356A the best. The low sitting headlamps and bumpers give a particularly sporty appearance, especially with the Cabriolet top in the lowered position. These stunning design elements ensure the collectability and the desirability of the Reutter 356A Cabriolet for years to come. The magnificent 1958 356 A Super Cabriolet featured here is finished in stunning Ruby Red over the gorgeous black leather interior and black folding convertible top. This incredible motorcar has been comprehensively restored with no expense spared and is one of only 23 356s to come equipped from the factory with highly desirable and sought after Rudge wheels.
