This Is the Oldest Porsche Sold in U.S.
This gorgeous strawberry red 1952 Porsche 356 Cabriolet is the earliest known Porsche imported to the United States.
So says Porsche, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary and set out to find the oldest Porsche sold in America. The search turned up an amazing array of vintage iron, including an impeccably restored 1950 356 Cabriolet (shown below) owned by Richard Brumme of Annapolis, Maryland. The blue drop-top is among the first series production 356s built in Stuttgart.
But it was sold in Germany, not America, so it didn’t take the prize. The honor went to Dr. Robert Wilson of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who found his Porsche 356 Cabriolet in a junkyard and brought it back to life. The 1.5-liter engine produces a whopping 60 horsepower, and we’ll bet the car is an absolute joy to drive.
