The Porsche 356 which was introduced in 1949 was the first car designed by Ferdinand Porsche to bear his name.

The 356, which was closely related to the Volkswagen Beetle (another Ferdinand Porsche design), was initially powered by a rather sedate 1.1 litre aircooled flat-four cylinder engine which produced a mere 40 hp. Later the displacement was increased to 1.3 litre and then 1.5 litre versions, the latter put out 70 horsepower.

In 1955 the styling of the Porsche 356 was updated and the split windscreen was replaced with a single piece curved windscreen. The suspension was also improved and the car was fitted with a bigger 1.6 litre engine.

In 1959 the 356 was again revised and renamed the Porsche 356B. This came in 60 hp and 90 hp (called the Super 90) versions capable of 100 mph and 110 mph respectively.

The final version of the 356, the 356C was available in three forms, the 1600C, 1600S or 1600SC.

The most powerful model of the 356 was introduced in 1960. The 356 Carrera 2 was based on the 356B and C models. This car featured a 2.0 litre flat-four cylinder engine which developed 155 horsepower and allowed for a 130 mph top speed.

Throughout its lifetime the Porsche 356 was available in a range of bodystyles. There were coupes, cabriolets, and Speedster (later called Roadster) versions which had cut down windscreens.

The Porsche 356 was built from 1949 - 1965 and during that time over 82,000 cars left the factory.
