Classic 1965 Porsche 356C 1600 Cabriolet at Daniel Schmitt & Co.

Porsche is famous for the careful development of its automobiles, so it is no surprise that the 1965 356C model, the last of the 356 series, is a highly developed and sophisticated automobile. Featuring visual improvements such as an outside fuel filler cap and the rear twin grilles over the engine compartment, they incorporated many of the design characteristics early Porsche buyers came to expect with its introduction.
Shortcomings in design and execution had years to be identified, analyzed, massaged and eliminated. The Porsche flat four was close to bulletproof. Rear suspension revisions long since refined and perfected had rendered its handling characteristics nearly flawless. Additionally, these models further represent the pinnacle of the series as four-wheel disc brakes became standard items on the 356, as did ZF transmissions and upgraded high output engines with stronger internal components. Construction had matured until the cars’ fit, finish and function set the standard to which other manufacturers strived.
The production Porsches existed in parallel with their racing counterparts, benefiting from the innovations of racing, but pursuing their own course toward meeting, and exceeding, the expectations of customers. To most Porsche enthusiasts, the C version of the 356 represents not only the last, but the best of the line.
