Great Energysavingelk 2020-02-06 12:13

Bonsoir Pierre!

Not so favourable a light, but this is a Porsche 356, every boy's dream in post-war Germany! I never heard of a 1600 S version (which might have been sold abroad or overseas), within Germany only a 1500 S version was on sale, with 70 HP and vmax=170 km/h.

Our elder son gave my wife and me a voucher for one day on a Porsche 356 Coup on the occasion of our 30th wedding anniversary. No steering servo, a handbrake to be operated with the left hand, hard manual labour and an almost nude feeling as safety belts were lacking. In strog contrast to today's concepts, all corners of the car were clearly visible...

Un bon weekend!
Sven

Default To Energysavingelk: porsche,

Hi Sven,

You are correct, it is a Porsche 356. I made the correction on my note.

Regards,

Pierre
