Porsche has always manufactured rewarding cars, beautifully made and totally individual, in many ways the modern equivalent to the pre-war Bugatti.
The 356 was Porsche’s first production car, and hence the model which brought the marque such enduring fame around the world. Its reliability, performance and wonderfully entertaining handling endeared it to many a keen driver in its time.
This lovely example, presented in red, was restored by the present owner in 2006 by Rupp, who is a Porsche specialist in France and has been maintained by Porsche Lapierre. It was showing 51,000 kms on the odometer when restored and it now shows a mere 65,000. There have only been 4 previous German owners and during the restoration its body was sandblasted and re painted.
This particular example also comes with disc brakes, sport shock absorbers, makrolon windows, leather seats and a racing tank.
