Porsche is famous for the careful development of its
automobiles, so it is no surprise that the 1965 356C model, the
last of the 356 series, is a highly developed and sophisticated
automobile. Featuring visual improvements such as an outside fuel
filler cap and the rear twin grilles over the engine compartment,
they incorporated the many of the design characteristics early
Porsche buyers came to expect with its introduction. Shortcomings
in design and execution had years to be identified, analyzed,
massaged and eliminated. The Porsche flat four was close to
bulletproof. Rear suspension revisions long since refined and
perfected had rendered its handling characteristics nearly
flawless. Additionally, these models further represent the pinnacle
of the series as four-wheel disc brakes became standard items on
the 356, as did ZF transmissions and upgraded high output engines
with stronger internal components. Construction had matured until
the cars’ fit, finish and function set the standard for which other
manufacturers strived. The production Porsches existed in parallel
with their racing counterparts, benefiting from the innovations of
racing, but pursuing their own course toward meeting, and
exceeding, the expectations of customers.
