In late 1955, Porsche released the first 356A model, which was the first major change in the line since its debut in 1948. While it looked visually similar to its predecessor, the 1956 Porsche 356 was subtly altered to include slim rocker rub rails and a one-piece curved windshield that removed the vertical crease. Available as a Coupe, a Roadster, or a Speedster, buyers were excited about the new release. Perhaps one of the key changes that took place was the change to 15-inch diameter wheels and a new “super-wide” 4.5-inch breadth. Of course, tires also increased to accommodate the larger wheels. If you own a 1956 356, you can probably name some of the interior changes that happened during this model-year’s release. They include a new flat-faced panel dash with padded top and radio mounting slot, however the Speedster – to remain the affordable, slimmed-down version – did not get this change. Porsche also increased its engine options to offer a new 1600 Normal and 1600 Super, as well as a 1500GS. The previous 1300 Normal and 1300 Super were still available as well.
