The Porsche 356 was Porsche’s first production automobile for sale - a lightweight and nimble-handling, rear-engine & rear-wheel drive . Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. In 1951 it emerged as a winner of the legendary 24-hour Le Mans race. In 1954 Richard von Frankenberg furthermore won the class in the  Mille Miglia driving exact this model. The car is therefore also approved to participate in the Mille Miglia.
Therefore, the Porsche 356 became famous for extraordinary performance and aerodynamic design.
