Over the fifteen-year production run of the illustrious Porsche 356 series, four different model variations would be released: the 356, 356A, 356B, and 356C. The early Porsche 356 models are often designated “Pre-A” to avoid confusion when talking about the earliest models. The first production 356 would roll off the floor in 1950. Launched in 1960, the 356B would be a milestone in the Porsche 356 series, as there were some major changes from the previous 356A models. The most noticeable change to the 1960 Porsche 356B Cabriolet and Coupe was the front end. The hood would become flatter and a massive chrome handle would replace the polished aluminum one that was found on the Pre-A and 356A. Bumpers were also bigger and higher, and now had a pointy shape. Headlights were raised and front fenders made almost a straight line from the headlights to the windshield posts. Interestingly, this would also be the last year that the Porsche script would be found on the front of the car; it would be moved to the rear for future models. The 1960 Porsche 356B Cabriolet is highly desired, as only 1,616 models would be released during this model year.
