1957 356 Cabriolet Restoration – Part 9

We’ve got a new round of pictures from James detailing the latest progress on the 1957 356 Cabriolet restoration. Things are coming along nicely. From James… As promised we will cover the outer rockers today. I will stick to one side since they are the same on both sides  and we can move on to […]

1957 356 Cabriolet Restoration – Part 7

We’ve got some serious progress to report. Well, I use the term “we” very VERY loosely since I’m just posting the work James is actually DOING. From James… I know that at the end of the last installment I said that we would cover the outer rockers but I moved to the back instead. We […]

Time for another weekly update of the 1957 356 Cabriolet James O is working on (one lucky dude in my opinion). From James… Today we see the new floors going in. Inside rocker repair.

1957 356 Cabriolet Restoration – Part 5

It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve had an update from James on the 356 restoration project they’re doing. Quite a bit happening. From James… In this set of picture we finish rebuilding that corner, well almost. I know that I have a tendency to be long winded with my pictures so after this […]

Here’s the latest installment of the 356 restoration from James. I’m loving this project. From James… Now we get down to some real work. Because the rockers and floors are so rotted we can’t remove everything at once, so I have to pick a spot and start repairing section by section. In order to get […]

James sent me some more pics and another little update. We’re in for a long haul with this one, so there’s plenty more to come. Thanks James!!! From James… Before we can start cutting anything off, we have to brace the car. With the floors and rockers so rusted there is the real possibility of […]

1957 356 Cabriolet Restoration – Part 2

This is second part of the pictures James O sent me documenting their restoration of a 1957 356 Cabriolet. Been thinking a lot about this car lately and it’s made me want to go scour junk yards looking for gems like this. Even though I know the process would be painful, time consuming and expensive, […]

1957 356 Cabriolet Restoration

James O, definitely amongst the most envied of our fine group of PorschePerfect.com readers, sent me some initial pictures of a 1957 356 Cabriolet his shop is restoring. He shows the start of the restoration process and what they’ve done (and found) thus far. I find this fascinating and hope we can continue to live […]

900 Porsche 918 “Buyers” & Made By Hand Videos

Here’s a couple of things I came across today worth mentioning. First is a Bloomberg post claiming that Porsche has 900 potential buyers for the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid. “I’m confident that we will soon reach the threshold of 1,000,” was the comment Wolfgang Duerheimer (Porsche’s development chief) mentioned in an interview at the Beijing […]
