Porsche 356
The 356 is a two-door, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive,
lightweight and nimble-handling car available in both hardtop
coupé and open variants. During the years of production,
engineering advances continued, contributing to the car's
success and appeal in motorsports. Porsche began production
at Gmünd, Austria, in 1948, with roughly 50 cars made. Only
about half of the original 76,000 that were ever produced are
still surviving.
A modified 1120 cc 4-cylinder air-cooled Volkswagen engine
with a single Solex carburetor provided power for the
automobile. The output power of the air-cooled engine was
increased from 25 horsepower to 35-40 horsepower by
increasing the compression ratio and widening the intake and
exhaust valves.
The perforated headliner and the ultra-comfy springing system
in the seats, like in recent Porsches, feel top-of-the-line, and the
details are gorgeous. The 356 was not only attractive to the
sight, but it was also incredibly comfortable, and you did have a
fantastic time in it. Unlike today, everything was laid out so
simply and the simplicity of use was so high.
