1950 Porsche 356

The 1950 Porsche 356 was the first volume-produced Porsche and was the car that put the Porsche brand on the map. A lightweight rear-engine 2-door sports car available as hardtop coupe and convertible. Porsche would produce the 356 with several variations until 1963. Throughout its production, more than 76000 units rolled off the floor in Germany. The 356 was a 4-cylinder, rear-wheel-drive, rear-engine car, which used unitized pan and body construction. Much of the mechanics of the Porsche 356 including the engine, chassis and suspension were derived from the VW. First debuting in 1948, Porsche quickly re-engineered the car with a focus on performance.

Chassis numbers are stamped in the trunk area in front of the tank and the engine number is on the base of the generator stand. Rust is also a concern with the 1950 Porsche 356. Rarity of the 356 models means that replacing chassis parts can be quite expensive.
