Before the legendary 911 there was the 356, the first car made by the Porsche car company in 1948. Designed by Dr. Porsche’s son Ferry from Volkswagen Type I components, the first 50 cars were hand made, followed by a planned production run of 500 cars, which ended up being more than 5,000 cars by 1954. Iteratively upgraded as the 356A, 356B, and 356C, it was the mainstay of the Porsche lineup until the 911/912 was introduced in 1963.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
