In 1958 Porsche succeeded its Speedster with the Convertible D, a similarly lightweight, sparsely-equipped sports convertible but now with more comfortable cabriolet-style seats, rollup windows, a taller windshield and larger rear window in the convertible top. With coachwork built by Drauz (thus the "D" designation), it proved to be exactly what the market wanted and went on to great success in the market. This very attractively restored example is finished in black with black vinyl upholstery, a tan cloth top and matching top boot cover. It is fitted with wider than standard chrome wheels mounted with 195/60-15 radial tires for superior handling and adhesion. Cibie headlights are protected by chrome stone guards and the front and rear bumpers have overriders for protection. The paint and interior are very nice, reflecting its long term ownership by a Porsche enthusiast who enjoyed driving it to Porsche club events and who maintained it in pristine condition. It is a real Porsche owner's car with chassis and engine numbers within the appropriate range for the first year of Convertible D production. Thoughtfully maintained both cosmetically and mechanically, it commends itself to anyone who wants to appreciate the Porsche 356 experience.
