General Information

The Porsche 356. A Dream Car.

The Porsche 356 is not only the first Porsche produced in the series, but also the first sports car to be sold under this name. Between 1948 and 1965, Porsche manufactured over 76,000 cars of this model series. It all started with "Porsche No 1" by Ferry Porsche (son of the automotive engineer Ferdinand Porsche), a two-seater, mid-engine roadster with a tubular frame and a 35 horsepower, 1.1 litre VW engine. Initially many Volkswagen parts were used in mass production, with some modified such as the frame, for example, and the engine was moved to the rear. It is remarkable that the 356 already bears the language of form which became typical of most Porsche models: the round headlights, the curved fenders and the sloping rear.

Toy version.

Schuco presented the Porsche 356, manufactured on a scale of 1:45, for the first time in 1959 at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair – scarcely ten years after its big brother first took to the roads. And how – even then – this model car made the hearts of young boys race so! Schuco has made a limited edition of 1,000 units of this zinc die-cast model in the cream and red colour combination shown here for Manufactum. It has been fitted with a particularly strong, long-lasting clockwork spring mechanism, making it well equipped for every race. Using a micro-screw, the steering wheel can be precisely adjusted for targeting the finishing line. As always, the box it comes with can be used as a garage. The special challenge here, of course, is to get the car driving into its cardboard garage in one go. The model is delivered in kit form.

Note:

Collector's model. Not suitable for children under the age of 14.
