Porsche 356 Pre-A

Easily the most iconic of the Porsche brand, the classic Porsche 356 was the first vehicle to carry the Porsche name. The 356 started production in Gmund, Austria where aluminum bodies were used, however production moved to Stuttgart where a company named Reutter produced the bodies of the Coupes in steel, and the Cabriolets were made by the firm Glaser. These first versions of the Reutter and Glaser cars are known as the “Pre-A” cars. Produced from 1950 to 1955, many of the Porsche 356 Pre-A models are extremely rare. In fact, only a handful of the first 500 cars produced from the first model-year of official Porsche production in Stuttgart actually remain in running order today – these 356 Pre-A models are highly sought-after among collectors.
