From the launch of the Porsche 356 to the introduction of the Porsche 356A, 10,466 Pre-A 356 models were built, including 7,157 Coupes, 1,409 Cabriolets and 1,900 Speedsters. The higher production of the Coupe makes them the most readily available, while the Roadsters are perhaps the most sought-after. The 1952 Porsche 356 Pre-A is an interesting model-year, as it marks the change from the split windshield to the bent windshield, which is curved in the center and at each edge. This was a defining characteristic of the early Pre-A models. If you’ve always wanted to own a Porsche 356 Pre-A, you’ve come to the right place for resources and information. If you’re buying a 1952 356 Pre-A, it is important to remember that this is an old car with old attributes; many are not suited to be daily drivers. And, because of recent interest and increased demand, you’re unlikely to find a real bargain among any of these 356 models. The price you will pay is based almost exclusively on the car’s condition. It is also important to remember that restoration costs on the Porsche 356 are very high, so it is always best to look for a car that is in the best condition you can afford. In many cases, a car that was previously restored, but may not be in the best showroom condition now may be your best buy.
On the other hand, if you’re experienced in the area of bodywork and have plans to attend to any mechanical needs yourself, a 1952 Porsche 356 Pre-A in poor to fair shape is worthy of consideration. Overall, the Porsche 356 Pre-A you choose will be based on your comfort level with restoration and your desired intention for the car.
