The original Porsche 356 Speedster has become a legend, but in its day, it was just a bit too bare-bones for some customers. Porsches answer was the 356A Convertible D, D referring to Drauz, the German coachbuilder that produced the new cars bodywork. The new car featured a higher windshield and wind-up door windows for enhanced weather protection, as well as fully upholstered seats, and it was built using the same 356A styling, chassis, and drivetrain as the final Speedsters. Of the three versions of Porsches lightweight open cars equipped with removable chrome-framed windshields, the Convertible D is the rarest. Only 1,330 were built, compared to nearly 4,000 356 and 356A Speedsters and 2,653 356B Roadsters. That makes the Convertible D a prized commodity today. A rare, most attractive, and more practical alternative to the 356 Speedster. This is a desirable, honestly presented Porsche of rarity and beauty, and it is ready to drive in style.
