This 1962 Porsche 356B T6 Twin Grille Roadster is 1 of just 248 cars built by D’leteren in Brussels, Belgium as a replacement to the T5 Roadster. D’Ieteren Freres was responsible for creating the Roadster bodies, painting them, then installing the various components to complete the car.
With the introduction of the T6 bodies on the 356B platform, Porsche switched production of the Roadster from Drauz to D’Ieteren Freres. These were identified by twin intake grilles on the engine cover and the model is sometimes named after them. The car benefited from a host of T6 upgrades such as variable speed wipers, adjustable seats, an anti-theft lockable shifter.
T6 production began at Porsche in September 1961 and the T6 Roadster was produced before the end of the year. Compared to the preceding convertible D, these models could be ordered with the Super 90 engine. The other engines were only slightly upgraded for the T6, but the Super 90 received a A12 Haussermann clutch.
Only 248 Roadsters were produced by D’Ieteren Freres then the model was phased out in favor of the cabriolet.
