Rarity:
From 1957 – 1959 Porsche made
20,623 356A’s

7,225 356A (T2) Coupes
1,722 356A (T2) SUPER Coupes (Estimated)

Of those, it is believed that approximately 30% survived. So, you can understand how rare these cars are….

1958/1959 (T2’s) Silver 356A’s do not come up for sale often, in the last 6 months i have only seen 2 come up for sale, and one of those needed a full restoration.
