"A Convertible D Christmas in Holland" by Paul Niesing
Urgent Request: Looking for D 86471 or Information About It
Could the current owner of Conv. D #86817 please contact me? I might have located your original engine.
The purpose of the Convertible D Registry is to locate and track Porsche 356A Convertible Ds that still exist, to help Convertible D owners keep in touch with each other, and to provide historical information about these rare early Porsches.
The successor to the famed Porsche Speedster, the Convertible D model run was limited to 1,331* cars built between August 1958 and September 1959. Possibly less than half remain; we're not really sure, so we hope you'll help us find out. We currently have 583 cars in our database and continue to discover more!
If you are a Convertible D owner and your car is not in our database, we would appreciate hearing from you. If you used to own a Convertible D or parted or scrapped one, and you still have the car's VIN and/or other facts, we'd appreciate a quick note. We are also seeking specific information on the earliest Ds, Convertible D features that changed during the model run, and the two Convertible D Carrera models: where are they now?
If you are a 356 enthusiast who wants to learn more about the Convertible D model, you will find a wealth of information here. If you are new to the 356 Porsche world, the Convertible D Registry encourages you to become a member in your national and local 356 clubs, registries and groups. Please see our growing list of 356 Links, and we hope to see you and your 356s at these friendly events, treffens and holidays.
Disclaimer: Due to information given to us from a variety of sources, some of which can be second-hand and/or difficult to verify, we take no responsibility for the accuracy of the data presented about each Convertible D shown in the Registry listing pages.
