Interesting, yeah, sort of.

It's like a 911, Audi TT and 356 had an orgy.

I like the backend better than the front. I'm not sure I'm digging the front bumper.

Is that re-bodied Cayman?

Need a more rounded roof line to look more like a 356

THIS is a cool 356 based on a Cayman!

This Porsche 356 Is Actually a Cayman Underneath

For less money I would go for a fiberglass replica with a tube frame and air cooled 911 running gear.

The Corvette guys have been doing this for a few years. Theirs are ugly too.

Especially, when you get the original.

I like Porsche's and I like Corvettes's... but that is just wrong on so many levels.

I kinda agree with Rattlsnak, the 356 to me looks like an incomplete design study.
The later ones are a bit better, but the earlier you go the worse they seem to me.

The picture above, cool picture, but that car looks halfassed to me.
The front bumper/nose is way to high , you can see the under pan.
Is that a model that is supposed to have a bumper attached to it??
Looks like they forgot to put a front spoiler on that, which obviously for a 356 would look like a joke as they aren't that fast anyway.

I was in the Museum this year, they had a line up of 356'es, all in to much clearcoat..
felt underwhelming up close. There are much nicer bodies from that design period

Now they may have been great to drive compared to other cars in the era. But design wise, bit meh.

I generally don't find many cars from the 45-55 era very "sexy".. The big design movement then was happening in the US , Europe was still licking it's wounds.

Late 50ies


The only interesting 356 to me is from Porsches friend, Abarth



Now i don't say you can't have some cool pics with some 356es.. especially outlaw modded cars.. But the original 356'es to me look well, they mostly just are an evolution towards the 904 & 911.
