Drauz Coach Builders logotype.
Drauz Karosseriewerke was from the small city of Heilbronn in the German state of Baden. Founded in 1900, the firm did its earliest work for NSU and Daimler, and by 1911, Drauz had gained Adler, Fiat and Ford as clients.
In 1958, the continued improvements of Porsche Carrera engines yielded higher horsepower. Production began on the Porsche Carrera "Convertible D", a replacement for the Speedster. There were only about 1300 "Convertible D" built between 1958 and 1959.
The "D" is made by Drauz factory, and the car is between a Speedster and a Cabriolet in luxury and lightweight appointments. Most noticeable are the roll-up windows and a taller, but still "removeable" windscreen.
