Highly coveted by car collectors across the world, the 1949 Porsche 356 was part of the second half of the brand’s initial batch. Only fifty Porsche 356 models were produced between 1648 and 1949, the vast majority of which were sold in Germany and Austria. These vehicles, now known as part of the “pre-A” period of the 356, paved the way for what went on to become one of the most successful lines of its time. Their elegant shape and inviting curved edges represent some of the best-known incoming aesthetic trends of the fifties.


You only need to take one look at the 1949 Porsche 356 to see what made it such an appealing vehicle at the time of its release. Sure, now it looks like a classic because it is one, but it isn’t hard to imagine the impact it had back in 1949. It immediately started to make ripples as an instant classic of European automobile design. Its surprise first-place ranking at a race in Innsbruck, while the prototype was being developed in 1948, was the first sign that Porsche had more than one victory in its hands.
