When it comes to classic cars, few are as visually stunning and highly coveted as those from Porsche. One of their most iconic models is the 356 Pre-A Gläser Cabriolet Split Window, currently available for purchase from German luxury car specialists, Schaltkulisse. If you have a sizable budget and are in the market for one of Porsche’s most captivating vehicles, this could be the perfect choice for you.

Rolling off the production line in the 1950s, this 356 Pre-A Gläser Cabriolet Split Window from Porsche is in exceptional condition despite being more than half a century old. It is one of only 242 cabriolets produced by Gläser between 1950 and 1952, making it a truly exclusive classic car for discerning collectors.

Porsche Perfection

As Porsche aimed to establish true series production after moving from Gmünd to Stuttgart, their trusted coachbuilder, Reutter, faced a backlog of orders. In 1950, Porsche decided to send several 356 cabriolets to Gläser, the workshop in Weiden known for crafting luxurious convertibles for brands like Mercedes-Benz, Horch, and Maybach.

This Porsche 356 Pre-A Gläser Cabriolet Split Window from Schaltkulisse has undergone a top-notch restoration, including a dark blue exterior repaint, black interior upholstery, and a matching black soft top. It was later purchased by a collector in Bonn with a correct 1,300 cc type 506 engine. The cabriolet received a thorough mechanical restoration in the early 2010s, ensuring not only stunning looks but also exceptional driving performance.

Being one of fewer than 130 vehicles bodied by Gläser in 1952, this rare cabriolet from Schaltkulisse is rich in early design details like the distinctive split-window configuration and elegant coachwork. It would be a show-stopping addition to any classic car collection, perfect for showcasing at Porsche events, regional concours d’elegance, or enjoying a leisurely drive on scenic roads.
