Porsche produced just 1,331 examples of the 356A Convertible D between August 1958 and September of 1959. The Convertible D was a more civilized 'Speedster', with a larger windscreen and winding side windows. Overall the new car was 3.5-inches latter. It was a some-what more practical car than the speedster, offering a more protective windscreen, more comfortable seats, and proper side windows while retaining the cars sloping waistline and attractive body.

This particular example left the Porsche's facility on November 15th of 1958, powered by the same engine it uses today. It was paint in Ruby Red paint and given US bumpers and sealed beam headlights, along with a luggage rack and chrome rimes.

The current owner acquired the car around 1991. A cosmetic restoration began a year later, which included having its dark blue color restored back to its original Ruby Red. A new convertible top was fitted, and some elements of the interior were reupholstered.

The original transmission was replaced in 1989 and prior to 1987 the original Solex carburetors were replaced with Weber units.
