Without Porsche’s diminutive 356, the company would not be where it is today. Over 76,000 were built from 1948 to 1965 in coupé, cabriolet, and speedster body style. The first major update to the 356 platform was the 356 A, which was introduced in 1956 and featured a curved windshield and slightly modified suspension. A new 1,600-cubic centimetre engine replaced the 1.5-litre engine. These cars also received a new instrument panel, which included a tachometer and a fuel gauge, and also featured a lowered floor, which helped to improve legroom. The top-shelf engine for the 356 A was the ‘Super’ version, which produced 88 horsepower.

Built as a 356 A 1600 Super for the 1958 model year, chassis number 103435 boasts the desirable sunroof coupé body style. Originally finished in Ivory and fitted with rare accessories, including wind deflectors, headrests, and a horn-push ring, the car was retained by Porsche when new as a press car. It is believed that the car used to be owned by a French Porsche dealer, who restored the car to its current configuration upon his retirement, and that it was retained by him for many years thereafter. Acquired by the previous owner from classic Porsche dealer Serge Heitz in early 2014, the car was bought on the advice of noted Porsche specialist Andy Prill, who confirmed the car’s status as a genuine sunroof coupé and press car. The car retains its original engine and gearbox, and the bootlid and doors are stamped with their proper body numbers.
