1960 Porsche 356B 1600S Cabriolet

Description

The 356 series was without doubt the model which catapulted the Porsche marque into world-wide contention in the hotly-contested sports car market. It put into practice Dr Porsche’s highly-evolved theories about ensuring traction through rear-mounted engines, as had been put into practice in some of his mighty pre-war racing designs, and subsequently some of the early Cisitalia racing cars.

Another keynote was to keep everything as light as possible, so that all 356 bodywork variations always demonstrated the classic engineering principle of form following function, remaining sharp and purposeful.

This is a left-hand-drive example of the ever-popular Cabriolet, built in Stuttgart in1960 was originally delivered new to Intercontinental Motors of San Antonio, Texas and is now fully UK registered with EU taxes paid. This example is delightfully presented in its original colour scheme of Silver Metallic with a red hide interior with a contrasting black roof.

Supplied with a UK V5 document, a current MoT certificate with no advisories valid until April 2016, a Certificate of Authenticity as well as correspondence from Porsche Club GB, this fine example looks stunning from every angle and appeals to buyers for its high build quality and stunning, sleek and aerodynamic looks.

With prices still on the rise, this 356B would be a perfect starting point on which to base a Porsche collection, or serve as a fast and comfortable ride for continental touring, vintage rallies and club events.
