After the first Porsche sports car, the so-called Porsche No. 1, was
licensed for road traffic as early as the 8th of
June 1948, in March 1949, Porsche presented its first production sports car at the Geneva Salon de l‘Auto, the legendary Porsche 356.
Using classical tuning techniques, such as modified cylinder heads and twin carburettors, on the 4-cylinder boxer engine taken over
from the VW Beetle, the engine power of the first Porsche 356 could be increased to a respectable 40 hp. Between 1949 and 1950, a
total of 44 coupé and 8 convertible versions of the so-called „Gmünd Porsche 356“ were entirely hand-built. In 1950, Porsche moved
back to its main factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen in which, by the end of production of the type 365 in April 1965, slightly over
76,000 of this sports car icon were produced. Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 500 pieces a miniature model of this
legendary Porsche 356 Gmünd Coupé to a scale of 1:18 in the PRO R line. This line, consisting of resin as the material, stands for
exceptional and highly filigree small series models. By means of this highgrade model material, it is possible to produce very rare
and exotic exemplary vehicles in perfect quality and also in low and exclusive production runs.
