Available as both a hardtop coupe and as an open configuration, Porsche's 356 included years of innovation contributing to Porsche's motorsports success and popularity. Replacing the 356A for the 1960 model year, the 356B was a step-up change from the previous Porsche.

The Porsche 356B was available in several different versions including a Coupe, Roadster, Super, Super Roadster, Super 90, and Super 90 Roadster.

For the interior, the driver and passenger are met with a lush tan interior. Complete with front buckets and smaller rear seats, this sports car is most comfortably a two-seater. Noted with an optional Blaupunkt radio 'Frankfurt De Luxe' combined with front speakers and CD player in the glovebox, this 356 has been updated to be a lovely cruiser. There is some wear to the leather driver's seat but does not appear to hinder the comfort or cause distraction to the driver.
