A dream lives on

Unthinkable today, at the time it was a dream come true: With the assistance of Ferry Porsche, a total of 13 replicas of the Porsche 356 were built in the GDR through 1959. Almost 60 years later, one of these “Lindner-Coupés” was bought by Alexander Fritz. Inspired by the history of the car, the dedicated tinkerer decided to undertake the demanding restoration.
