The German automaker Porsche is known for its speed and the unique design of its sporty vehicles. The brand is on the upper portion of the sportscar ladder. It was a bit of a shock when they delivered their first SUV. This begs the question, does Porsche also make a limousine? With Cadillac and most other car brands getting in on the market why not Porsche? The answer to the question is yes, there are a few Porsche limousines. Here's everything you need to know about the Porsche limos.
Does Porsche actually make a limousine?
You won't find a Porsche limousine that has rolled off the production lines at the factory.They're not in the business of making limousines. That doesn't mean that there aren't several Porsche limos around though. A few coachbuilders have undertaken projects to convert various models of Porsche vehicles into limousines, therefore, we confirm that there are quite a few Porsche limousines in existence.
1953 Porsche 356 Limousine Custom
The prestigious auction house RM Sotheby's, received a Canadian collection that included a white 1953 Porsche 356 Limousine Custom. This piece was a member of the Taj Ma Garaj Collection of more than 20 Porsche and W models. The auction was held in 2019. The limo featured a V-shaped windscreen and other components of the Porsche 356, including the trunk in the front along with the twin carburetored engine.
There have been a lot of changes made such as the stretch feature, several doors, and a soft-toop sunroof. A Reutter badge that is located in the rear end of the vehicle suggests that this is the company that customized the 356 to make it a stretch. It started out as a 1953 Porsche pre-A 356 coupe. The estimated value of the vehicle is between $150,000 to $250,000, depending on what a collector is willing to pay for the privilege of ownership. This is one of Porsche's first known conversions for limo service.
