As the first car ever produced by Porsche, the 356 ran from from 1948 to 1965. The 356 is a lightweight, rear engine sports car that came in either a hard top or a convertible. Cabriolet models of the 356 was offered since the beginning of production. General production of the 356 continued until 1965, after the 911 which was supposed to replace the 356, made its autumn 1963 debut.
The Porsche 356 Carrera, SC, Super 90 and Speedster models are today among the most desirable 356 models. Very few 356 Carreras were produced and often times they bring well over $250,000 at auctions. A fully restored 356 Carrera Speedster will sell for around $300,000 at auction. The original selling price of a late 1950s Porsche was around US$4,000, today they run between $20,000 to well over $100,000 at auctions. In 2004, Sports Car International ranked the 356C number 10 on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. Thousands of owners worldwide maintain the 356 tradition, preserving their cars and driving them regularly.
