The Porsche 356 was a lightweight rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and convertible configurations. To distinguish among the major revisions of the model, Porsche 356's are generally classified into a few major groups; 356A, 356B and the 356C.
Late 1955, with numerous small but significant changes, the 356A was introduced. Its internal factory designation, "Type 1", gave rise to its nickname "T1" among enthusiasts. In early 1957 a second revision of the 356A was produced, known as Type 2 (or T2).

The 356's four-cylinder pushrod engine was later re-introduced in the Porsche 912, offered between 1965-1969 in response to customer complaints that the new 911 was too expensive.
