The Porsche 356 is the first sports car manufactured by Porsche. Its history begins in 1948, when it left a sawmill transformed in Gmund in Austria, the Allied occupation forces being at that time the new residents of the offices of Porsche in Stuttgart in Germany. Based on the model of an improved Ladybug, the 356 experienced many changes until its production stopped in 1965.
The Porsche 356B was produced from 1960 to 1963 according to two types, the T5 and the T6, simply removed by slight aesthetic modifications, and available in coupé, cabriolet and roadster. A new variant of the 1.6-liter 60-horsepower engine equipping the Porsche 356A also makes its appearance, developing this time 90 horsepower. The Porsche 356B thus brings a certain degree of maturity, refinement and sophistication to the brand and thus to the ever more demanding Porsche customers. Among the personalities who owned a Porsche 356B T6, are Georges Pompidou, a great sports car enthusiast.
Like the former French President, art photographer Amaury Soares is a passionate sports enthusiast, especially Porsche. He gives us in this table his version of a Porsche 356B T6 Coupe of 1963 with redesigned lines. This Artwork is available in Yellow korner Photo Gallery.

Composed with hundreds of photos, his photographic assemblies about symbolic cars put forward the history and all the peculiarities which characterize these models. Amaury Soares does not present us a simple automobile photography but the idea that we are made of these cars, all that inspires us, as a picture that we would take in our spirit.
«The idea is to recreate a mental vision of a car. When we evoke a model of car, there is not a single image which comes to the spirit, there is a stream of images which comes into the head. I freeze this mental process in a single picture, as the result we have a photography which goes out directly of our imagination.»
The art photographies of Amaury Soares on the theme of the automobile were revealed for the first time in 2016 during the autoshow Retromobile in Paris.
His work is exhibited in different art galleries across Europe, but some of his pieces are also part to many European and international art collections (in France Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland Switzerland Portugal Brazil USA …). His last exhibition was in Singapore.
