1953 Porsche 356

July 1948 Porsche’s first production car was introduced, the Porsche 356. Until then, Ferdinand Porsche had worked for other manufacturers. Designed by his son, this new Porsche received instant praise and acclaim. Initially available as a coupe, cabriolet and roadster, the Porsche 356 went through a number of evolutions. Max Hoffman, an importer of Porsches to the US, was responsible for the Speedster. He requested a basic model for his American clientele, which included racing-style seats, removable side curtains and a low windscreen. Today, the Speedster is one of the most desirable of the 356 models.
