1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet

One of the most iconic sports cars ever made, the Porsche 356 was first introduced to the public via approximately 50 handmade, aluminum-bodied examples during 1948 and 1949. During 1950, the Porsche 356 would enter production with its beautiful curvature, simplistic design and nimble handling. Over the next fifteen years, Porsche would manufacture more than 76,000 examples in their Stuttgart facilities. The 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet ran alongside a Coupe model and, unfortunately, some Coupe models have been hacked down to look like Cabriolets. This not only destroys the Coupe model and ruins its value, but also is a sad ploy to capture unsuspecting buyers. Because of this, and because of the sheer number of 356 kit and replica cars out there, educated buyers will certainly expect you to verify your 1953 Porsche 356 model’s authenticity. This can be achieved by comparing engine and chassis numbers to Porsche records or by obtaining a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche itself. In 1953, only 1,997 Porsche Pre-A models would be released, of them only 460 were Cabriolet models. If you have an original model, you certainly have something of value in today’s classic car market.
