One of the most desirable collector models is the 356 "Speedster",
introduced in late 1954 after Max Hoffman, the sole US importer of
Porsches, advised the company that a lower-cost, somewhat spartan open-top
version could sell well in the American market. With its low, raked
windscreen (which could be removed for weekend racing), bucket seats and
minimal folding top, the Speedster was an instant hit, especially in
Southern California. Production of the Speedster peaked at 1,171 cars in
1957 and then started to decline. It was replaced in late 1958 by the
"Convertible D" model. It featured a taller, more practical windshield
(allowing improved headroom with the top erected), roll-up glass
side-windows and more comfortable seats. The following year the 356B
"Roadster" convertible replaced the D model but the sports car market's
love affair with top-down motoring was fading; soft-top 356 model sales
declined significantly in the early 1960s. Today these early four-cylinder
models are highly coveted by collectors and enthusiasts worldwide.
