About Porsche, Karosserie Reutter and Max Hoffman

The story of the "Europeans"

Unfortunately, neither the Porsche archive in Zuffenhausen nor the Reutter archive contain much information or data on the special models "Continental" and "European", which were ordered by the USA importer Max Hoffman and manufactured exclusively for the American market. The information published here is based on statements, reports, stories and articles in forums, books and as provided by vehicle owners.



Do you own a 356 A T1 "European", but still haven't registered your vehicle? Then register your vehicle now and do your part to preserve the history and the last remaining vehicles for the future. We would be very pleased if you registered!
