Porsche Classic Center Gelderland (launch at the Int. Porsche Collectors Day 2019)
The Porsche Classic Center proudly presents….. the first 356 Contintental in scale 1:43, a limited and unique Porsche 356 miniature in terracotta made by Spark Models in scale 1:43
In late-1954 Max Hoffman, the sole US importer of Porsches, convinced Porsche to build a stripped down roadster version with minimal equipment and a cut-down windscreen. Towards the end of the original 356’s time (in 1955, when the 356 A was about to be introduced) Hoffman, wanting a model name rather than just a number, got the factory to use the name “Continental” which was applied mostly to cars sold in the United States. This name was used only in 1955 and today this version is especially valued and very rare. In the US 1,200 early 356s had been badged as the “Continental in Coupé and Cabriolet. First time now aft er almost 65 years, the 356 Continental is being reproduced for the fi rst time as a quality miniature in scale 1:43. Mark Wegh of Porsche Classic Center Gelderland Netherlands and Henk Koop, President of the Porsche Model Club are responsible for making this wonderful modelcar in cooperation Collecting
The first Porsche 356 Continental Coupé modelcar is limited and numbered of 356 pieces in total and produced in the very rare color terracotta in a special giftbox with certificate and information inlay with information about the 356 Continental.
