The second generation of the Porsche 356 series, the 356A, was renowned for bringing about significant improvements to the previous Pre-A models. Launched in late 1955, the Porsche 356A would feature a revised chassis that made it easier to work on the cars, a dashboard that would accommodate the new three-instrument cluster, and most notably, the adoption of a curved windshield. In fact, this windshield shape is one of the telltale signs that buyers are indeed looking at a 356A rather than a Pre-A model. When selling your 1959 Porsche 356A Coupe, you can expect for buyers to look for these hints as clues to your models history. In total, approximately 7,012 units of the 1959 Porsche 356A would be produced in Germany, of which 4,063 were estimated to be Coupe models. Characterized by its fixed steel roof, the Coupe garnered the most popularity during the era; it often outsold its Cabriolet counterpart. Today, while the open-top models seem to be the most desired, the Coupe models are still favored for their driving experience, protection from the elements, and overall curvature and styling.

Due to production numbers, the 356A Coupe is easier to find in the market when compared to its Cabriolet and Convertible D counterparts. However, thanks to its fixed steel roof and much needed protection from the elements, the Coupe version is often in better condition. Interested buyers for your 1959 Porsche 356A Coupe will likely understand this, and will watch for any areas of wear and tear that they need to factor into their restoration budget. However, don’t worry; there are buyers out there looking for models of all conditions.
