Porsche 356 Coupé Zagato

The Porsche 356 Coupé Zagato: Zagato’s Porsche that went lost

Vehicle Overview

The Porsche 356 Coupé Zagato has an intriguing and somewhat mysterious history. While searching through Zagato’s archives for material on the Porsche 356 Speedster, an elegant drawing surfaced, depicting a coupé variant based on the 356 Carrera. This drawing, dated 1959, suggested that the project had reached an advanced stage of the production process. Alongside the drawing, final sketches were also found, further indicating the potential development of this model. Despite the absence of detailed information about this specific model, it is presumed that the Porsche 356 Coupé Zagato was produced at some point, but its whereabouts became unknown, adding to its mystique. Inspired by the success of the Speedster, the Sanction Lost version was later created. This limited run of nine units sought to revive the spirit and design of the original concept, blending Zagato’s distinct styling with Porsche’s engineering excellence. The Porsche 356 Coupé Zagato and its modern counterpart, the Zagato Sanction Lost, exemplify the enduring allure of classic automotive design and the fascination with lost prototypes that captivate car enthusiasts and collectors alike.
