  • Porsche 356 Factory Video

    A video showing how a 356 was manufactured "back in the day". The thing that jumps out is the complete lack of any safety precautions in the factory. From a guy using a metal grinder on welds with no gloves or safety glasses to spraying primer in a booth with no mask. And everything was adjusted and made to fit by hand.....

    Thinking about getting one, Bob ?
    If you can afford one these days you won't regret it...if you think a TR6 is easy to work on, the 356 is easier although keeping it original is more costly.
    If I could have one of my 40 plus cars back, I think it would be this one:

      Cool video, I wonder if modern factories do anything like the quality checks they're showing for these new cars. It also makes me wish I had space to add an air-cooled VW or Porsche to my garage, I like working on those.

        Here is the one I used to race. I could have the engine out in 30 minutes working alone. Fun to drive as it had about 150 hp.

          They are pricey. Especially the drop tops.
          I'm really not that interesting...
