Based loosely upon the VW Beetle, which Dr Porsche also designed, the 356 was the first Porsche model and, as such, represented the birth of a legend. The curvaceous little coupés and spyders were a huge success throughout the world, and continued to be so throughout the model's life because of a policy of continuous development. Here is the full and fascinating story of the Porsche 356, and the racing and rallying cars which sprang from it. Here, too, is the story of the very beginnings of what, today, is one of the greatest sports car marques and an icon of automotive excellence. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

The second edition of this book continues the restoration of a 356 Porsche to driver level condition. This book does not spend time or money creating the “perfect” 356, and does not necessarily search for NOS (new old stock) replacement panels if a reproduction panel or patch is appropriate; but the book strives to give you a restoration that will be correct, admired and driven. This second edition provides more detail and contains additional comments to assist those restoring a 356 which was purchased disassembled. This second edition follows the restoration of a 1957 sunroof coupe from the time of purchase to the first drive. Additionally, detailed comments are provided from vendors, such as media blasting, painting, and upholstery.

Aside from Ferraris, no model of old car is rocketing up in value as much as the 356 "bathtub" Porsches, which made their debut in 1949 when they were being hand built in a converted sawmill in Gmund, Austria. Wallace Wyss, author of the incredible Barn Find series, decided to take the best pictures from his long out-of-print Porsche 356 Photo Album and add additional new pictures to a new version, including freshly shot ones from recent Porsche events, including Rennfest, to provide a visual guide to all he different variations. It starts with the all aluminum ones from Gmund, then then goes into the pre-A, the A, the B, and the C. The frosting on the cake is new visual coverage of the factory race cars such as the Carrera Abarth GT/L, the SL356 cars and the "three pointed scrapers." Porsches built by outside coachbuilders such as Glockler and Beutler are also included. Wyss also applied his considerable historian skills to write an 8,000 word history of the 356 starting with the very first car and ending with the last. If you are new to the subject of 356s, this book gives you a generous overview, as well as an inkling as to why they are now bring so sought after by a new generation of collectors, with the Carrera models leading the way.

- Together the companies Reutter and Porsche made automobile history. Author Frank Jung, Albert Reutter's great-grandson, embarked on detailed research on this subject. Through personal contact with former staff and contemporary witnesses he discovered unique pictures and texts that were used largely for this book- On the basis of historical photos and previously unpublished documents, the models and events are presented chronologically until 1964: starting in the 1930s with the cooperative work on Volkswagen predecessors and prototypes, the focus is on the companies' cooperation and the development of their factory buildings, as well as on the production of the Porsche 356 bodywork since 1949- Descriptions of the work on prototypes and special vehicles complete this comprehensive monographThe long and successful cooperation between Porsche and the Stuttgarter Karosseriewerk Reutter & Co. GmbH was, right from its beginning, more than just a marriage of convenience. It was based on mutual sympathy of two unique companies within the automotive industry. In 1931 the Reutter coachwork company, founded in 1906, started building prototypes of what would later be known as Volkswagen on behalf of the Porsche engineering office. In 1949 Porsche gave the order to Reutter to produce 500 bodies for the Porsche sports car, and around Easter time 1950 the first Porsche 356 ever to be constructed in Germany was finished in Reutter's factory I. Porsche bought ground from Reutter within the plot of its factory II in order to build a new construction site for manufacturing motors. At the same time Reutter moved the complete bodywork to factory II in Zuffenhausen and from that moment most of the legendary Porsche 356 were manufactured in intensive cooperation and side by side. Besides those vehicles made by hand in serial-production Porsche 356 presents many prototypes and special cars made for Porsche up to the point of collective evolution of the later called Porsche type 911. The book's focus is on the description of the development of a Porsche 356-body, colorfully illustrated and detailed as never before. Much of the material used was taken from the Reutter-family archive. Previously unpublished documents and pictures were found in several institutional and private archives, especially the archive of Porsche itself.
