On June 8, 1948, the first car to bear the Porsche name was homologated: the Porsche 356/1 Roadster, built in Gmünd (Carinthia/Austria).

The "Gmünd Roadster" was powered by Volkswagen's 1.1-liter, air-cooled, flat-four engine. The engine's power had been increased to 35 hp for the 356. This meant that the roadster, weighing just 585 kilograms, could reach speeds of up to 135 km/h.

The first 356s (also known as "Pre-A" models) are easily identified by their split windshield with a central bar. From the 1952 model year onwards, this was replaced by a one-piece windshield with a fold in the middle.

All 356 generations were also available in an "open" version (Cabriolet, Speedster or Roadster).
