1957 PORSCHE 356 SPEEDSTER 

Driving a Porsche 356 Speedster always makes for a sense of occasion.

 

This Speedster is definitely not for the camera-shy. It seduced all the stars of its time including legends like James Dean and Steve McQueen, and it attracts a lot of attention wherever it goes. You can't drive a single mile without a wave, thumbs up, a shout, or a question. It's extremely photogenic so be prepared for passing crowds to take pictures whenever you stop.

In 1957 the Porsche 356 Speedsters cost only $2995. These days, it's a different story... They have become incredibly valuable, easily fetching over a quarter-million dollars.

This particular Porsche 356 Speedster tribute was hand-built by JPS Motorsports in California. Every detail is identical to the original '57 Speedster, but under the skin, it definitely breaks with tradition. That's because it's powered by a modern water-cooled Subaru boxer engine. And while the original '57 car only made 70 horsepower or so, this one makes a full 200. In addition, it boasts modern safety features such as disk brakes, modern suspension, seat belts, and even air conditioning. All the fun of a rare classic in the form of a safe and pleasing driver.

Make no mistake, the Speedster is a true gentleman’s racer. The sleek shape and the sophisticated deep black exterior, complemented by elegant whiskey tan leather make for a truly timeless design. Furthermore, the cockpit offers comfortable racing-style seats and a thin-rimmed, nostalgic steering wheel - begging you to wrap your hands around it while you navigate from one corner to the next.

The feeling of this car on the open road is like no other driving experience. From the sprightly acceleration and the addictive engine growl to the warm wind in your hair, this vintage Porsche will bring your bucket list to another level.
No one, and I mean no one, ever comes back without a giant smile on their face.
