What's Motorcar Gallery doing with a replica? A local guy lost his storage and had to give up the car. We took it on a test drive and had to have it. It's got enough wear that it's a perfect summer car. It's got enough go that you won't want to get out of it
The original Porsche 356 Speedster is one of the most beloved cars on the planet. Introduced as a lower cost version of 356 Cabriolet, The Speedster's low windshield and minimalist appointments made it a hit with the driver and racer crowds.
The Speedster was a rather simple car and enthusiast found they could mimic the original by making a fiberglass replica Speedster body and mounting it on a VW Beetle chassis. The result looked, sounded and drove like the original.
Our Speedster is a factory built car by Vintage Motorcars. Vintage is a major player in the Speedster world, having built over 3,000 cars. The body quality is very good and the interior is quite authentic.
The Speedster is powered by a 1641cc dual carb VW engine. The engine is quite healthy. The car and drives great and is surprisingly quick. It has a performance exhaust that sounds better than it should.
Looking for a lot of fun for not a lot of cash, here's your car. We don't think it will last long.
