Porsche 356 kit cars are replicas of the classic Porsche 356. Purchasing an actual, original Porsche 356 would be far out of the price range for most car enthusiasts. This is where kit cars come in. Kit cars generally include all parts except for the chassis and the engine. In other words, the body, glass, and interior are purchased with the buyer fitting the purchased kit to the chassis and engine. Regardless of the inner workings of the car, the finished product will look like a Porsche 356, but without the significant cost of actually buying one. In many cases, companies will build them for you, but you can also build them yourself.
