History of the Original 356/1 No.1:ThePorsche 356/1was the first real Porschecar created by Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche.This prototypecar was a two-seater open roadster with a mid-mounted, ir-cooled flat-4engine of 1,131 cc displacement that produced 40 horsepower (30kW). While the body was an original design, ost of themechanics(including engine and suspension) were derived from the Volkswagen Beetlewhich Ferry's father, erdinand Porschehad designed.The aluminum roadsterbody of the 356/1 was designed by Porsche employee Erwin Komendain April 1948 at Gmundand completed only a month later. Smooth and low, he 356/1 set the pattern for later 356swith one fundamental difference; the engine of the production cars was moved behind the rear axle (to reduce costs and make room for two additional seats). The car was registered by the state of Carinthia(Kärnten) with the license plateK45-286 and made its maiden voyage on June 8, 948.
