Porsche 356

The 356 was according to some the original Porsche automobile (others say the Porsche 64), created by Ferry Porsche using parts and knowledge from the Volkswagen factory. It was available both with and without roof (coupé and roadster). The car body was designed by Erwin Komenda.

The car bears a close resemblance to the Volkswagen, including an air-cooled, rear-mounted engine.

The 356 was introduced in the 1948 and was replaced by the Porsche 911 and the Porsche 912 in 1963.
