The Porsche 356 was the company’s first production automobile. It was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and open configurations. Design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmund, Austria. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its autumn 1963 debut. It is estimated approximately half of the total production of 76,000 356s still survive.

This example is an early [up to July] 1963 356 B T-6 Cabriolet. The vehicle has a non-matching motor, motor is from 1962 1600 S [75hp]. The engine was rebuilt to a higher spec and now boasts 1720 cc and Dellorto carburetors instead of original Solex carburetors. A conversion from the 6 volt electrical system to 12volt was done at the time of the engine rebuild. The brake system was also upgraded from standard 1963 drum brakes to the disc brake system that became standard in 1964 [much more reliable and serviceable]. A complete professional restoration was done and documented between 1987-89. Finished in a gorgeous Silver 936 (circa 1980) and Black Leather Interior, this suitable four seater is just perfect.

This is an honest car with period correct Radio and Nardy Wood steering wheel and with a full superb detail this time capsule shows and drives very well. From what we know this is a Vancouver car since new.

This 356 comes complete with a set of service history thanks to the previous owner who kept meticulous records

This Vehicle is Lotus Certified Pre-Owned:

We’re proud to offer this vehicle, as a Lotus Certified Pre-owned (CPO) Vehicle, meaning that each car certified by us comes with a warranty for at least one year, and many with considerably more than that and even unlimited mileage restrictions. Have confidence knowing that you’re backed by a warranty unlike any other in the business. Come and visit us in store to learn more or email us here with your questions and we’ll tell you all about it.

Advantages of Lotus Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles:


We have you covered:

Drive with confidence knowing your vehicle is backed by an industry leading warranty with Superior Coverage. Our Lotus Certified Pre-Owned warranty program includes most of your car’s components, not just the drivetrain. For example, power windows, sunroof motors, even heated seats are all covered, as is your engine and transmission – but there’s lots more. Call or email us here for details.

Unlimited Mileage:

Most of our certified pre-owned vehicles offer at least one year of coverage, with no mileage restrictions whatsoever. If the vehicle you purchase from us is still covered by the factory warranty, our Lotus Certified Warranty starts the day that warranty ends.

Warranty Valid throughout Canada and the USA:

If you’re traveling and cannot bring your car back to us for service, have the confidence knowing your car is covered when you travel. You can take your car to any licensed mechanic for warranty service, across Canada and the USA.

You Can Upgrade your Coverage:

One year not enough? You can easily upgrade your coverage up to as much as 10 years from the original factory warranty at nominal cost with varying options; we’ll give you the credit for the first year on us! Speak with one of our experts to learn more.

 

Out of Town Purchases + Delivery:

We have customers across Canada, the US, and through parts of Western Europe. As much as we want to sell cars in British Columbia, we recognize that our brand and business has earned its reputation internationally.

In Canada, every province has different taxation rules and we can accommodate them all. We can help you secure worry free shipping to your door, and assist you with vehicle registration once your car arrives.

You have a number of choices available to you:

The first step is to contact us. We always have our professional photographs, our inspection reports, lien checks, service records, CarProof, and CarFax Reports available to you. We’re happy to refer you to previous out of town customers so you can get a reliable third party account of their experience with us, to give you peace of mind when purchasing a car sight-unseen.

Should you prefer to see, touch, and drive your vehicle prior to purchase, we will pick you up at Vancouver International Airport (YVR). From there, you can choose safe, insured door to door delivery in enclosed transporters that guarantee the arrival of your purchase in the same condition that it left our showroom.

Or, should you opt for an exceptional drive home, we will happily pay up to $250 toward your overnight stay en route. Please contact us if you have questions or need further information on out of province or international purchases, shipping, and/or sales tax exemptions.

 

The Fine Print:

Smart people always read the fine print, and you’re smart, so here it is:

  • all prices subject to applicable taxes and levies
  • *Lease payments are quoted on approved credit, and are subject to change from month to month. Applicable taxes, lease acquisition fee and PPSA registration fees additional. Contact us for details or to tailor a quote to your preference. We have terms up to 60 months with as little as $0 down available on most vehicles.
  • while we make every effort to ensure our website is correct, sometimes mistakes can, and do happen. Please contact us for exact vehicle options, history, mileage and details. Better still: come in and experience the car for yourself, to confirm it’s right for you. E.+O.E.
