1961 Porsche 356 B


A brief history of the 1961& 1962


In 1961 Porsche contracted with Karmann Body Werks to produce a new body style for the 356. The " Notchback "Hardtop was designed to increase sales by offering two fixed roof styles. This new stylealso served two objectives. First: to offer anew thirdbody style.Second: to have a second company to produce bodies for the 356 incase of supply disruptions with their current supplier "Reutter body Werks". The new Karmann design accomplished this bybuildingaCabriolet body and welding (Soldering)a "Notchback" Hardtop to the body. This new body stylethen would secure a constant supply of "Notchback" Hardtopand Cabriolet bodies in case of any disruptions with their current supplier.

During the1961 model year Karmann built1048 carsof this body style.It is estimated that fewer than 100-150 of theseremain today in either Notchback or the top removed Cabriolet.
