San Francisco Street Sighting: 1964 Porsche 356C
The 356C could make up to 95 horsepower, though this one appears to be a standard model due to its lack of "SC" badging. That means it probably makes a little more power than a Volkswagen Beetle and probably gets similar fuel economy, making it a stylish and relatively efficient little city car, albeit a rare and risky one to use as a commuter. This one wears its original black plates and probably its original trim and wheels. It shows some wear, but overall it's in very good condition for a 45-year-old sports car in a city known for its reckless drivers and atrocious parking situation.
