1961 356 BT5 Roadster - Red




During the 1960 production year, the 1960 Porsche 356B Roadster would replace the Convertible D model that had been introduced in late 1958. Essentially the same car, the 356B Roadster was updated to meet all the new 356B specifications. It is estimated that approximately 1,529 of the 1961 Porsche 356B Roadster models were released. In the years that would follow, buyers would turn their sights to the Coupe models and the open-air appeal of the Cabriolet and Roadster models would diminish. The 1961 production year would be the last for the Roadster model and moving forward only the Coupe and Cabriolet models would be available. Because of this, the early Roadster and Speedster models are highly desired in today's classic Porsche market.
