The Porsche 356 has a celebrated history. The winner of its class in Lemans in 1951, it is a sportscar renowned for its aerodynamics, handling, and build quality. With multiple refinements through its eighteen-year life, over half of the 76,000 produced still survive. It is a car rich in history, and one that is coveted by collectors.
This gorgeous 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Replica was built by Vintage Motorcars of California, the premier builder of 356 replicas. Finished in Black, this Speedster’s finish has a beautiful luster. Its finish is further enhanced by its chrome brightwork and optional front and rear bumper guards. Vintage 190 aluminum wheels with optional Porsche emblem hub caps, fog lamps, and mesh headlight grilles provide additional distinction. You’ll also appreciate its Black convertible top and side curtains, should the weather unexpectedly turn south on one of your jaunts.
The interior of this Speedster is equally sporty, featuring heated Black bucket seats and a wooden 3-spoke steering wheel with a polished center. You’ll also appreciate its vintage AM/FM/XM-capable radio, and full complement of driver-focused VDO gauges. With a large tachometer placed squarely in the center of the instrumentation, there is little doubt where Porsche’s sensibilities lay. This is a car that wants to be driven.
Powering this roadster is a 1915 cc air-cooled 4-cylinder engine with dual carbs that generates 110 horsepower. Its rear-mounted engine is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, allowing for complete driver control. Its 5-lug front and rear disc brakes and sporting handling characteristics will have you firmly in control on those twisty-two lanes. With just 1,100 miles, this Speedster runs and drives as well as it looks.
This 356 Speedster Replica has been titled as a 1968 Volkswagen on its clear Ohio title.
If a get-in-and go 356 Speedster with authentic looks and a quality build is what you desire, this 1957 replica is the one for you!
