Porsche's first production model, the 356, quickly established the company as a builder of serious sports cars. Produced from 1948 to 1963, the 356 progressed through four major model changes, several body revisions, and a considerable array of engines. The first major update, designated 356A, was introduced at the 1955 Frankfurt Motor Show. The engine was enlarged to 1,582 cubic centimeters, and higher compression resulted in additional horsepower. A new body in the 1958 model year was called, in factory parlance, Type 2, giving rise to the enthusiast shorthand T2, its predecessor being T1..
