1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet

The Porsche 356, one of the most iconic designs in history, was first launched in 1949. Production was discontinued in 1965. During this exceptional run as one of the finest sports cars in history, the Porsche 356 would see more than 76000 units during its lifetime. Today, while all Porsche 356 models are highly desired, the early models are perhaps some of the rarest. Known as the Pre-A, the early Porsche 356 boasted a sleek design and attractive curvature. The 1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet can be distinguished from the later Porsche 356A models by it's 2-piece windshield, 16inch wheels and small polished-aluminum hood handle. If you’re looking to purchase an early Porsche 356, these characteristics can help you distinguish the model-year of the car you’re looking at.
