1948 Porsche 356 Pre-A CoupeThe very first Porsche 356 models, although not an official designation, are often referred to as the Pre-A models as they are the models that came before Porsches release of the 356A. These early models featured a four-cylinder, air-cooled, rear positioned engine and were designed by Ferdinand Ferry Porsche, the son of founder Ferdinand Porsche. Possibly one of the most iconic classics to come from this era, the 1948 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe and Cabriolet models are today some of the most desired cars in the classic market. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. With so many kit cars and replicas in the market today Porsche should be extremely flattered! This also poses problems for 1948 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe buyers, as it makes it exceptionally important to verify that you are indeed looking at an original Porsche. Purchasing a kit car that you believe to be authentic can be a very, very costly mistake.
