The Porsche 356A Convertible D was manufactured for the 1959 model-year only. Easily identified by chrome windshield posts that are bigger and higher than the Speedster, and by the two upper corners making an angle with the top of the chrome frame (rather than the rounded corners of the Speedster). The 1959 Porsche 356A Convertible D, which gets its D from body maker Drauz, is one of the most sought-after classic 356 models in the market.
