DESCRIPTIONThe Porsche 356 was the company's first production automobile. It was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and open configurations.

Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built.
