Porsche 356B

The year was 1948. The place: Gmünd, Austria. Much of Europe was still recovering from the devastation of the Second World War. In a small factory located in the small town near the Czech border, the designer who was the mastermind behind Hitler's "Car of the People" - better known as the Volkswagen Beetle - built a sports car that would change automotive history. That vehicle was the Porsche 356, a vehicle that would continue in production for the next eighteen years.

It was not Ferdinand Porsche's first attempt to built a sporty racing vehicle. In the late 1930s, he had designed and built a concept race car, which was designated the Porsche Type 64. It resembled its little brother, the VW Beetle, but was larger, with a lower, more streamlined profile. Porsche was able to produce three of these cars before the war broke out and put an end to all production of civilian vehicles for the next several years. One was destroyed in a bombing raid; another was placed in storage, where it was discovered by American occupation troops shortly after Germany's surrender. That vehicle wound up getting chopped and used for recreational purposes by bored GIs looking for fun until the engine wore out and the car was scrapped. The third survivor is currently owned by a European collector, but hasn't made a public appearance for decades.

The earliest Porsche 356 was an instant success on the European racing circuit, which caught international attention. Eventually, after two years of painstakingly assembling fifty of the vehicles by hand, production was moved to a modern, automated factory outside of Stuttgart. The vehicle began hitting showrooms in 1950. For several years, Porsches and Volkswagens had many interchangeable components, and would for many years. This would increasingly change as the two companies began to go in different directions.

The Porsche 356B arrived in dealer showrooms in 1960. This was an extensive upgrade of the preceding 356A, with stylish twin engine grilles and a generous back window. It was also equipped with a larger, more powerful engine - but retained the four speed manual transmission. Interestingly, the body came out of the same factory as the sporty-looking (but low powered) Volkswagen Karmann Ghia - in fact, some models were known as the Porsche 356B Karmann Coupe.

Today, a Porsche 356 speedster wide body for sale can fetch over $100,000 at auction. Porsche 356 restoration can also be an expensive proposition. Fortunately, if one of modest means must have a classic Porsche 356B, there are kits available from which a very convincing replica can be built.
