The Porsche 356C would be the last of the iconic 356’s to be produced by German automaker Porsche, to make way for the 911. In fact, just months after the 356 B gave way to the 356 C, the 356’s successor would bow. Produced from 1964 to 1965, the classic Porsche 356 C model, similar to the 356 B, was a T-6 body type model, with one of the only outward differences being the hubcaps. There were generally three types of hubcaps used over the entire 15-year production of the 356: the Baby Moon, rounded in a protruding moon shape; the Super, similar to the Baby Moon but with a protruding center; and the “C,” which were flat and often featuring the Porsche crest. These hubcaps indicated you were looking at a car with four disc brakes, the 356 C. The arrival of standard four-wheel disc brakes was a significant mechanical update. The production of the 356 peaked in 1964. Interestingly, Porsche continued to sell the 356 C in North America through 1965 as demand for the model remained quite strong in the early days of the heavier 911 models.
The Porsche 356 C is arguably the last and best of the early pushrod Porsches and is often considered a top collectors item for Porsche enthusiasts.
