The body was given a full interior and steering gear from a Beetle, but it won't be a running car. Instead it's just a show model meant to demonstrate what the actual car first looked like. Based on the comparison photos from Porsche, the replica is incredibly close to the original. If you want to see it, it will be touring to different events, including the Luxury and Supercar Weekend in Vancouver, Canada, from Sept. 8-9, and at the Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca from Sept. 27-30.
Although the original car exists, Porsche has kept that car in its current state in order to preserve its place in history. This replica shows what the 356 looked like in 1948.
