This 1965 356 C 1600 Coupe, one of 1,738 Karmann-bodied examples built in the penultimate year of the model’s production, benefits from mechanical improvements such as four-wheel disc brakes and a 1.6-liter air-cooled flat-four mated to a four-speed manual gearbox. Even in its most basic configuration, as found here, this motor produced a punchy 74 horsepower at 5,000 rpm—enough to ensure sprightly performance on both road and track.
The magnificent 1965 356 C Coupe featured here is finished in classic and desired signal red over a black leather interior. This exquisite motorcar was restored with no expense spared and resided in one of the most prominent collections in the world for the last 10 years. A complete engine out service was performed in April 2022 at a cost of $14,851.43, and this investment-grade Porsche is ready for its next caretaker. We are pleased to offer this gorgeous example to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this iconic motorcar.
