During the 1960 production year, Porsche would release the 356B. Designated the T-5 body, the 356B offered bigger and higher bumpers in the front with large bumper guards, higher headlights and nearly straight fenders. A flattened hood with larger chrome handle can also help identify a 356B from the previous 356A models. A revised horn grille and turn signal, with additional grilles under the bumper are also notable changes, while this would also be the last year of front mounted Porsche script. During 1960, the 356C was available as a Cabriolet and Coupe, or as a special Roadster edition. The 1960 Porsche 356B Coupe would also be the first time the Coupes would feature vent windows, which had previously been used on the Cabriolet models.

When buying a 1960 Porsche 356B Coupe, it is important to remember that the price you pay is almost entirely based on the car’s condition. Restoration costs for the Porsche 356 can be high, so it is always in your best interest to look for a car that is in as best condition as you can afford. Because these cars had little to no rust protection, corrosion is one of the key culprits in the deterioration of these classics over time. Always be sure to have a thorough understanding of any damage or previous repairs that may need looked at in the future. For these reasons, many collectors and buyers look for 356 models that have previously been restored but are no longer in show condition or for cars that are fairly complete yet need the finishing touches. The Coupe, because of relatively high production numbers compared to the Cabriolet and Roadster models, is one of the more attainable 356 models from the 1960 production year.
