STORY

The Porsche 356 C Cabriolet SC is a variant of the Porsche 356, one of the earliest models produced by the German car brand Porsche.

The Porsche 356 was first introduced in 1948 and was the first production model produced by the Porsche company.

The design of the 356 was developed by Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche and his team.

 

The 356 went through several stages of development over the years, which were identified by letters (such as A, B, C).

Each series brought improvements in performance, design and technology.

 

The Porsche 356 C was produced from 1963 to 1965 and marked the end of the 356 era.

Compared to its predecessor, the 356 B, the C featured several design changes, including a new bumper and a revised hood.

The letter "C" stands for "Carrera", which refers to the powerful variants with the famous Carrera engine.

 

SC (Super Carrera) variant:

The designation "SC" stood for "Super Carrera", which indicates the more powerful version.

The SC engine had higher performance compared to the standard variants and was aimed at sporty drivers.

 

Nowadays, Porsche 356 models, especially rare variants such as the 356 C Cabriolet SC, are highly sought after by collectors.

They are considered classics and have a high value on the collector's market.

 

The Porsche 356 C Cabriolet SC thus has a firm place in Porsche's history as a model that continued the tradition of the sports car brand and at the same time marked the end of the era of the air-cooled 356 models.
