Ferdinand Porsche established his independent automotive design consultancy in the early 1930s, although his name would not appear on a car until 1949. That car was the Porsche 356, based on the Volkswagen designed by Ferry Porsche's father. Like the 'Beetle', the Porsche 356 employed a platform-type chassis with rear-mounted air-cooled engine and all-independent torsion bar suspension.

The early cars were clothed in aluminum and built at Gmund. Volume production of the steel-bodied 356 coupe later commenced in Stuttgart, at first in premises shared with coachbuilders Reutter and then (from 1955) in its original factory at Zuffenhausen. In 1951 a works car finished first in the 1,100cc class at the Le Mans 24-Hour Race.

The 356 enjoyed continued development and improvement over the years, with the engine growing to 1.3 and then 1.5 liters. The original split windscreen was later replaced by a one-piece, and a synchromesh gearbox was adopted. In 1955, Porsche introduced the arrival of the restyled 356A, featuring a rounded windscreen and 15- inch (down from 16-inch) wheels. At the same time, a 1600ccengine replaced the old 1.5-liter unit.

This particular example has been given a ground up restoration. In the process the car was upgraded technically with the fitting of a 912 motor and 901 5-speed transmission, without altering the external shell. Before passing into the care of its current owners, the car was part of the Steven Harris collection.
