The Porsche 356 was Porsche's first production car, it was produced from 1948 through 1965. The 356 was created by Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche who is the son of Dr. Ing. Ferdinand Porsche, the founder of Porsche. The first Porsche 356 was debuted on June 8, 1948, using many Volkswagen parts for manufacturing economy. However, Porsche quickly refined the car with a focus on performance, so that by the late 50's very few parts were shared.
