The 1948 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe was a four-cylinder, air-cooled, rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car designed by Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche, the son of renowned Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the company. Easily one of the most recognized and iconic Porsche models ever produced, the Porsche 356 stands alongside the Porsche 911 as one of Porsche’s most successful lines in history. While the first models relied heavily on Volkswagen parts, by the late 1950s the Porsche 356 had been re-engineered with a great deal of focus on performance. One thing that you’re probably aware of if you own a Pre-A Coupe is the fact that these early models were actually handcrafted in aluminum. For this reason, the early Pre-A models are some of the most sought-after Porsche 356 models. In fact, because of the labor that went into making them by hand, it took almost two years to manufacture the first 50 examples.
