Welcome to the 356 Register
The Register was formed in 1970, becoming the Club's first register. It covers the very first Porsche production cars built in Zuffenhausen near Stuttgart from 1950 to 1965, as well as the very rare cars manufactured before this in Gmünd, Austria. The Register covers four major model types: Type 356 (sometimes called pre-A); Type 356A; Type 356B and Type 356C. Its main aim is to promote the model's heritage, maintain a record of all 356s in the UK and provide information and advice relating to the restoration, maintenance and running of these cars.
The Register provides a unique and highly valuable knowledege-base for this classic of classic Porsches that was described by the motoring press as being “Years ahead in engineering and miles ahead on the road” when it was first launched. Had this not been the case it seems reasonable to conclude that it may also have been Porsche's last car. As it turned out, the 356 was the first of a very long line of great sports cars to bear the Porsche badge and the car that first made the Porsche marque a truly desirable one.
As well as being socially active, the Register provides valuable technical support and helpful advice for owners.
