The Porsche 356 was a sports car produced from 1948 through 1965. It was Porsche’s first production automobile. The first Porsche 356 was debuted on June 8, 1948, using many Volkswagen parts for manufacturing economy. However, Porsche quickly refined the car with a focus on performance, so that by the late 50’s few parts were shared in common between the two marques and it became the Swiss watch of automotive design.

The 356 has always been quite popular with the motor press, and in 2004 Sports Car International ranked the 356C tenth on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s
