1959 Porsche 356-A Print
Out of Stock
It’s hard to believe, but Porsche design – and the Germans in general – were able to reboot and go from thinking about Tiger tanks to sports cars in the span of just three years. In 1948, the first Porsche 356 emerged from a converted sawmill in Gmund, Austria (the Allied occupation forces were the new residents of Porsche’s Stuttgart, Germany offices).
By 1950, a much improved version of the Porsche 356 built in Zuffenhausen, Germany was being sold in America. The A series (356A) was the first refinement of the line introducing numerous refinements including a curved windshield rather than a split or bent screen. The 356A is arguably the most pure and beautiful variant of this timeless icon.
