First launched in 1955, the Porsche 356A was the second generation in the series and offered a significant amount of improvements over the rather primitive 356 Pre-A models. Numerous changes could be stated, however the most important were a change to the chassis, which made the car easier to work on, and a new instrument cluster and accompanying dash. To give owners a more comfortable ride, suspension was also improved. Cosmetic changes to the 1957 Porsche 356A included bumper guards on cars exported to the United States, and in the first part of 1957, beehive taillights. Later in 1957, the taillights would change to a teardrop shape and the license plate light would move to below the plate. Of course these are small details, however they are great ways to show potential buyers that they are indeed looking at an authentic 1957 Porsche 356A. As with any classic car purchase, serious buyers will also ask you for confirmation of the 356’s chassis and engine numbers to compare with Porsche records and historical information.
