1958 Porsche 356 A Cabriolet

In total, there were approximately 1,381 Porsche 356A Cabriolet models released during 1958, compared to more than 3,000 Coupe models. The 1958 Porsche 356A Cabriolet and Coupe also marked the launch of the T-2 body, although only a few small changes were made from the previous 356A body style. However, the Cabriolet model did get new vent windows; an option that would not be seen on Coupe models until the launch of the T-5 body type in 1960. If you’re trying to point out characteristics of the 1958 Porsche 356A that will authenticate your model as an original, check the door striker plate, which was now moved to a lower position, and for the two exhaust pipes that exited through the lower part of the bumper guard. As the owner of a 1958 Porsche 356A Cabriolet, you understand the thrill that comes from the open-air driving experience and the appeal that these Cabriolet models have to buyers. Also during this production period an open-top Speedster was available. It is important to help buyers understand that a Cabriolet is not the same as a Speedster. The Speedster was its own unique model, while the Cabriolet was the soft-top version of the corresponding Coupe.

Due to limited production numbers, the 1958 Porsche 356A Cabriolet continues to be more sought-after than its Coupe counterpart.
