Porsche 356A

The Gold Cup meeting at Oulton Park in August 2012 included the 45 minute HSCC Guards Trophy Race for GT Cars and the photographs below are of two of the participating cars.
 This is a 1958 Porsche 356A, driven in the race by Steve Wright and Ian Clark.
The Porsche 911 succeeded the 356 in 1963 and is still is production, and you can see the family resemblance in this side view of the 356.
When I walked through the paddock later there was a 911 alongside the 356, Philip Basil's 1965 model which also took part in the same race.
