Because of their high level of finish and many luxurious amenities, Porsche cabriolets were quite expensive. The 356 B 1600 Normal Cabriolet carried a base price of $3,962 FOB New York, according to a 1960 price list from Hoffman Motors, the New York importer. That was about a hundred dollars more than a new Corvette. The 1600 Super versions and Carrera versions were even more costly. Porsche cabriolets were extremely well built by Reutter, adjacent to the Porsche Works in Zuffenhausen, and were very comfortable all-weather touring automobiles. Adjustable seatbacks and good soundproofing provided occupants with a smooth and reasonably quiet ride at high speeds.

The magnificent 1961 Porsche 356B super 90 Cabriolet featured here is finished in its factory correct color of Fjord green over gray leather interior and black folding convertible top. This incredible motorcar was subject to complete restoration including a 95 hp upgraded engine and has just been completed with test miles on it only. For those that are not familiar, Fjord green is extremely rare and the most desirable color for the Porsche Cabriolet. I personally believe that because of this extremely rare color combination the investment potential of this iconic motorcar will grow beyond your imagination. We are proud to offer this show quality 356B super 90 Cabriolet to the most sophisticated collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential!
