Epic Restoration Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabrio ‘It’s incredibly rare… and was missing loads of parts’ One of two right-hand drive survivors, this Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabrio arrived as an unfinished project with a pile of boxes – and hid a critical flaw no-one could have forseen.

Though the less numerous earlier 356A models are holding their end up, values of #Porsche ’s 356B and C coupés have slipped back to roughly where they were three years ago.
That interesting nugget of information may offer some comfort to those enthusiasts who thought they’d missed the boat and would never get their hands on one. And it’s easy enough to leave the 356As to the acquisitive ‘own it but don’t use it’ crowd. In reality they’re probably not really worth the 17.5% premium they currently command.
From the driver’s seat the later cars are actually better, and it’s hardly as if they lost much of their design purity as they grew older – unlike XKs or E-types, it could be argued. Are they going to fall any further? It’s possible, of course, but given these cars’ status and the relatively low numbers available compared to later Porsches it’s unlikely to be by any kind of shirt-losing amount. In fact if there’s a further general mid-market downswing they may even outperform it.Stream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
