Pebble Beach 2011 - 1949 Porsche 356 Gmund Coupe

This 356/2 Coupe is the 45th Porsche built. The first 52 Porsche’s were hammered out over wooden bucks by four employees in the little saw mill in Gmünd, Austria. It is powered by an 1100 cc, 40 hp air-cooled engine, with two Solex carburetors. This car won 1st place on the Postwar Sports Closed class this year. This car was painstakingly restored by Road Scholars for Hans-Peter Porsche. It was truly special to see a real Gmünd coupe...
