Porsche started producing the model 356 in 1950. The Roadster body - which Porsche called Speedster - satisfied the demand of the US market. It was supposed to be light, fast and affordable. It is still light and fast although its price has changed dramatically. The Speedster, especially the early Pre-A model, is highly sought after.
This rare Pre-A Speedster already had the stronger 1600 engine, when it was delivered in the US according to its Porsche certificate. Only a few cars of this series were made before the regular 365 A Speedster was released. The original engine exists, has been overhauled and will be delivered with the car. Our Porsche Speedster currently has a type 912 engine with approx. 90 HP. This Porsche Speedster impresses with its amazing driving qualities, has been meticulously restored and is in immaculate shape.
