1955 PORSCHE

Continental Cabriolet

Derived from the well-known Type 356, the Continental came factory equipped with an early signal-seeking radio, reclining seats, whitewall tires and elaborate wheel trim. The model was conceived by influential New York importer Max Hoffman who believed that the American market would be more likely to embrace a vehicle with an evocative name, rather than a mere number designation. Although the term implied European sophistication and style, Porsche was forced to re-name the Continental when Ford Motor Company legal representatives informed them that they already owned the name. As a result, few Porsche Continentals were produced before the name was briefly changed to “European,” then back to 356.
