Even in the early beginning that Porsche made cars, it spent attention to marketing. During a 2 year production time in Gmund, Austria, only 50 cars were built. these cars have their own brochures with a nice design.
Next to the fairly known Porsche Gmünd brochure, there is another, less known brochure printed to promote the Porsche Gmünd SL cars. Even though Gmünd cars, they were assembled in Stuttgart and converted to light weights for race purposes.
Both brochures are extremely rare and are considered the holy grails among the Porsche literature collectors.
Porsche 356 pre-A Brochures
However the Porsches 356 produced from 1950 – 1955 are commonly called Pre A, this is not what the factory called the cars. The factory named the car ‘Type 356’. In this early period Porsche produced some great brochures to promote the cars.
Porsche 356 A Brochures
The Porsche 356A was produced from 1956 to 1959. Different models left the factory from the more common Coupes over the Cabriolets and Speedsters
the Convertible D, which was only produced in 1959. Several brochures were designed and printed, most of then by the well-known Erich Strenger.
Porsche 356 B Brochures
The Brochures and leaflets printed by the Porsche company to promote the Porsche 356B. The evolution of the artwork towards the Porsche 356A brochures is amazing.
Porsche 356 C Brochures
The Brochures and leaflets printed by the Porsche company to promote the Porsche 356C. Once again you can see that the style of artwork has completely changed. Not only the cars changed, the artist who was responsible for the brochures showed an amazing evolution too.
Porsche Race Car Brochures
The Brochures and leaflets printed by the Porsche company to promote the Porsche cars. Even back in the 50s, leaflets and brochures were printed for a car like the Porsche 550 Spyder, a car that could be used on the road but in nature it was a true race car.
