1960 Porsche 356B Cabriolet / 153454 Chassis Information

1960 Porsche 356B
Cabriolet
Chassis Num: 153454
By the time of the Porsche 356B debut in 1959, nearly 40 percent of Porsche production was being sent to the United States. Many of those buyers used their Porsches as everyday cars. Many changes to the 356A were made both for usability and comfort and the most obvious was that the 356B T-5 body had bumpers raised substantially to come closer to matching the height of American cars, substantially protecting the bodywork. This change necessitated raising bodylines and headlamps, and relocating brake cooling air intakes. Less obvious mechanical changes included updated suspension, brakes and an improved transmission; and interiors were substantially revised both for comfort and safety. Opening quarter-windows also reappeared for the first time in nearly a decade, and combined with a rear-window defroster for thorough ventilation.

At the top of the range was a new high-compression S-90 engine. It shared the same 1582cc displacement as the 60 and 75 horsepower engines, but the Super made 90 horsepower at 5500 RPM and 89 lbs. ft. of torque at 4300 RPM.

For 1960, Porsche produced just 1,617 Cabriolets. This particular example has been treated to a restoration and finished in black with a black top over a brick red interior. The engine was reconstructed to Type 616-7 Super specifications. It also includes what was once called 'The Ultimate Option,' Porsche's original factory-optional steel removable factory hardtop.
