I'd like to suggest some corrections:
the car Motortrend tested wasn't a Cabrio, it was "356A Convertible D", which was lightened version - the successor of 356 Speedster;
the car had base 1600 engine with 60PS at 4500 rpm and 110 Nm at 2800 rpm (mentioned 70 hp was US SAE gross power for this engine);
production years for this car - 1958-1961, factory claimed curb weight - 855 kg.
