The first car to bear the Porsche name was the model 356. Made entirely by hand in a saw mill in Gmund, Germany, the production run for the initial 356 totaled some 50 cars and took two years to complete. Beginning with the 356, the models that followed were the 356A, 356B, and 356C. Manufactured from 1948 till April of 1965, some 76,313 cars were made, some still running. Perhaps a handful have been maintained in pristine condition.



By default, customer cars are maintained according to Porsche factory specs. Want to take your car beyond factory spec? Say how far you want to go. GP will get you there. If you're out of bounds for any reason, you'll be informed why.
