THE PORSCHE 356

Although Ferdinand Porsche had established his independent automotive design consultancy in the early 1930s, his name would not appear on a car until 1949. When it did, it graced one of the all-time great sports cars: the Porsche 356. The work of Ferry Porsche, the Type 356 was based on the Volkswagen designed by his father, Ferdinand, and like the immortal 'Beetle' employed a platform-type chassis with rear-mounted air-cooled engine and all-independent torsion bar suspension. In production until 1965, the 356 is where the Porsche legend began and good examples have long been prized by collectors.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at Porsche in June 1961 as a B-model, this 356 Coupe was finished in Heron Grey over a black leatherette interior. Although the early history remains unknown, the Porsche is believed to have been delivered new to the US.

A comprehensive restoration was completed on the little Coupe in 2015; it was upgraded with a period, Outlaw performance look. Completed in October of 2016, the work performed totaled more than $87,500, and included a full strip and repaint of the exterior in the classic Porsche color of Slate Grey and the installment of a new red interior. The 356 was serviced and refurbished mechanically, carburetors and ignition systems were rebuilt, four new Koni shock absorbers were installed and a new set of wheels and tires were mounted.

The classic Outlaw look is apparent throughout, from the racing seatbelts, a wood-rimmed steering wheel and dash-mounted Chronometers to the center-outlet performance exhaust and racing-style side mirror. With very few miles since the restoration, this sporting Porsche presents beautifully throughout. The car's history file includes restoration receipts and photos, as well as the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity confirming the car is matching numbers. Accompanied by the owner's manual and a tool roll, this striking 356 Outlaw is ready for spirited drives.
