1949 Porsche 356

Produced in Austria using VW parts, the 1949 Porsche 356 was among the first of approximately 52 hand-built 356 models released between 1948 and 1950. Ferry Porsche wanted to build a car based on the Volkswagen Beetle, which was developed by his father. Having a deep race history to this day, the very first model was only a few weeks old when it scored its first victory in the Innsbruck City Race. Today, the Porsche 356 is an iconic classic car. Buyers and investors from across the world continue to make this one of the most sought-after and loved classic cars.
