Following its initial release as the Pre-A 356, the Porsche 356 A was released in late 1955. With numerous small but significant changes, the 356 A was introduced with the internal factory designation "Type 1", giving rise to its nickname "T1" among enthusiasts.  Body styles included coupe, cabriolet, and Speedster. For the coupe and cabriolet, exterior changes included a curved windshield that replaced the “bent” windshield of the Pre-A model. The other major change was to the interior dashboard that now had a padded top and a more modern look. Engine displacement included the 1300 cc motor, but most were equipped with the 1600 cc motor which also could be had as a “Super” version. In early 1957 a second revision of the 356 A was produced, known as Type 2 (or T2). In late 1958 the Speedster was replaced by the Convertible D, the “D” denoted the coachbuilder Drauz. It had a few more creature comforts, most significantly roll up windows. The exotic four cam race inspired motor also became available in the A. 356’s so equipped are denoted as the 356 A Carrera. The 356 A generation was replaced by the Porsche 356 B in late 1959.
