Sedan
Underneath the sheep's clothing of this 1956 Volkswagen lies a feral Porsche wolf. The engine is a 1,700 cc 547/5 flat four (same as the Elva Porsche.) The transmission is 911 and Spyder brakes occupy the corners. Even what you see is a deception, the fenders, door skins, engine lid, front trunk, running boards and bumpers are all aluminum.

Ferdinand Porsche was the father of the Volkswagen. He left Daimler-Benz in 1931, to open an independent design studio. Porsche commenced work on several automotive projects numbered consecutively. The People's Car was project number 60.

During World War II, the Porsche Studio relocated near the family estate in Zell am See Austria. A nearby sawmill, in Gmünd was converted to automotive use. There the 356 was born in 1948. The engine was a Volkswagen block with Porsche designed heads and the bodies were hammered over wooden bucks out of sheet aluminum.
