The perfect 356SC to drive and enjoy!
The 356 was created by Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche, son of Ferdinand Porsche Senior, and was originally conceived as a small, lightweight sports car that shared design characteristics of the Porsche-designed Volkswagen Beetle that was developed by prior to WWII. Believed to have taken its name from being the three hundred and fifty sixth Porsche design, the 356 was the first production automobile to bear the Porsche name. Production began in 1948 with the first cars being built with aluminum bodies constructed in Austria and production eventually switched to Germany after Porsche contracted Reutter Coachworks to build the 356 bodies. In 1951, the 356 took a class win at LeMans and thanks to the efforts of U.S. Importer Max Hoffman, the Porsche brand had won over motoring enthusiasts from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The 356SC or "Super Carrera" was first introduced alongside the 356C in 1963. Often considered the fully evolved 356 by enthusiasts, the third generation 356 featured upgraded handling and the addition of 4-wheel disc brakes which ensured adequate stopping power. Engine choices remained the same as the B, except with the addition of the SC model which offered a more powerful pushrod 4-cylinder Porsche engine with an incredible 95 horsepower. The 356SC was produced in limited numbers as only the most discerning drivers paid for the engine upgrade. 356 production would come to an end in 1965 to make more room for the 900 series line that was introduced during the prior year, but the legacy of the 356 and the 356SC in particular lives on in the hearts of motoring enthusiasts and collectors worldwide.
The 1964 Porsche 356SC Coupe by Karmann featured here is finished in its factory correct color combination of stunning Champagne Yellow over a beautiful black interior. This desirable 356SC was recently acquired from a long-term California owner, where it is believed to have spent its entire life.

Accompanying this rare and classic Porsche are copies of its owner's manual in both German and English, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, tool kit, service invoices and more.
