In late 1954 Max Hoffman, the sole US importer of Porsches, convinced Porsche to build a stripped down roadster version with minimal equipment and a cut-down windscreen. It was a brilliant idea: with few frills (reduced weight) and above all a lowered price, it was the ideal 356 for young and sporty customers. The idea had perhaps not entirely predicted the truly winning aspect: a breathtaking line.
We'll tell the story of this model on the occasion of its anniversary or when it will reach a sufficient number of cars.
