Porsche Club GB 356 on display

20/3/2015

In July we have a welcome return to our showroom of the Porsche 356 which we started selling in 1957 when we took on the Porsche Franchise.

We are pleased to announce that we will be displaying the Porsche Club 356 in our showroom from Monday 6th July to Saturday 11th July and we invite people to come and view this stunning car.

Those not familiar with this model will be interested to read that on 8 June 1948, the first version, the 356/1 Roadster produced in Gmünd (in Carinthia, Austria) was road-certified. Essentially this made the 356 the first production road car to bear the Porsche name.

The "Gmünd Roadster" was powered by a 1.1-litre air-cooled flat-four engine. The engine's power was increased to 35 hp for the 356. The roadster weighed just 585 kilograms and reached speeds of up to 135 km/h (83 mph).

The Porsche Club 356 will be accessible to view during normal opening hours which are 9am – 6pm weekdays and 9am – 5pm Saturday.

We look forward to seeing you should you be able to attend.
