1956 Porsche 356

Porsche released the 356A in October 1955, which was the first major variation in the Porsche 356 line. While the 1956 Porsche 356 looked very similar, it actually was quite an update. The most obvious changes being slim rocker rub rails and a one-piece curved windshield. Roadster, Coupe and Speedster models were continued. The Speedster’s top-frame bows rose approximately 2.5-inches. Perhaps one of the key changes was the change from 16 to 15-inch diameter wheels with a new 4.5-inch breadth. Tires were more fat to accommodate. The interior also saw several changes, the most significant being a new flat-faced panel dash. At this time, Porsche also updated its engines to offer a 1300 (normal and super), a new 1600N and 1600S, and the 1500GS.
