The Porsche 356 quickly became a very popular vehicle which fostered rapid improvements and the possibility to expand the model line. The 356B was the second iteration of the small Porsche sports car, and was introduced to the public at the 1959 Frankfurt Auto Show. The 356B T6 body was introduced in 1961 for the 1962 model year. It had many changes included twin air-intake grilles in the rear lid, an outside gas filler in the right front fender, a flattened lower edge of the front lid, and a new cowl vent. The battery was repositioned which made room for an optional gasoline heater.

The 'Super' version was introduced for 1963 and offered an additional 20 horsepower for both the coupe and cabriolet form.

In 2008 this 1963 Porsche 356B 1600S Cabriolet was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it had an estimated value of $100,000 - $125,000. It is an original California car that has been given a comprehensive restoration. It has its original 6-volt system, Biscuit leather interior with German weave carpets, a period correct AM radio with Hirschman antenna and a spare wheel and tire. The paint color is Signal Red, paint code 6211. There are four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes, a four-speed gearbox, and a 95 horsepower engine. Bidding nearly reached the estimated value and came close enough to drop the reserve. The car was sold for $99,000 including buyer's premium.
