1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet

Porsche’s 1950 model-year would mark the first release of the illustrious Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet and Coupe models. Despite having approximately 50 hand-built models floating around in the market from 1948 and 1949, the 1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet would be the first production model. In total 7,627 Porsche Pre-A models would be manufactured, of which only 1,409 were Cabriolet models. It is estimated today that approximately half of these models remain in existence, making them even more rare. Rather primitive, changes to the 356 would be made at a fairly rapid pace; the model would evolve quite considerably by the time it would be released as a 356A. The Pre-A Cabriolet body style is perhaps the most sought-after today and would be a great addition to any garage or showroom. It is important to mention that buyers will be looking for 1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet models of all conditions, as these cars are extremely valuable.
