When it comes time to sell your 1957 Porsche 356A Cabriolet, you may find that potential, uneducated buyers are often confused by the differences between the soft-top Cabriolet and other soft-top models such as the Speedster, Roadster or Convertible D. The easiest way to show that a Cabriolet is indeed a true Cabriolet is by the windshield frame, as the other models have shorter, removable windshields. On the Cabriolet, the frame is the same shape as the Coupe and is painted the same color as the body. On the other hand, the Speedster, Convertible D models and the Roadster are special models that do not have a Coupe equivalent. Coupe and Cabriolet models would be available throughout the fifteen-year production period, while the Speedster was available until 1958, the Convertible D was available in 1959 only, and the Roadster from 1960 to 1962. These facts should help you when discussing the originality of your 1957 Porsche 356A Cabriolet with potential buyers.
