If it’s March, it means Spring is near, and a driving person’s fancy turns to thoughts of convertibles. Not everything has to be a 600 HP behemoth, there is much to be said for driving a light 4-cylinder ragtop.
The 365 is a lightweight and nimble-handling, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, 2-seater. The 1,582cc flat-four produced 95 horsepower and was paired with a four-speed manual transmission.
76,000 were produced from 1950-65 in the Zuffenhausen, Germany factory; about half of them survive today. When they first came out, the 356 Cabriolet cost $4,250 (coupe was $3,750). The 356 was eventually replaced by the 911, which made its debut in September 1964. The 911 had its 50th anniversary a few years ago and is likely to see its 60th in 2024.
