Allmän beskrivning :
Porsches immortal Speedster was born out of the vision of North-American importer Max Hoffman, legendary for bringing open-top European sports cars to the burgeoning US Market. Based on the early American Roadsters bodied by Erich Heuer's Glaser Karosserie, the Speedster took shape with Hoffman's realisation that a mid-market gap existed for a no-frills race ready convertible. Reutter smoothed over the American's original bodywork, to result in a famous high-waisted bathtub style, which eventually proved to be one of Porsche's most celebrated designs of all times.
Presented here is a rare and early 356 speedster 1600 A. Leaving the factory in 1956, this car was delivered to New York. After spending most of its life in California, the car has been sold to a Porsche collector in mainland Europe in the early 1990’s. This superb and matching numbers example has then been restored and is in excellent condition. Finished in Black with Tan hide and matching roof with side screens, this iconic Porsche certainly turns heads. The car is a delight to drive – fast and sure footed and will comes with a Porsche heritage certificate of Authenticity.
This wonderfully presented Speedster is sure to attract the attention of any Zuffenhausen enthusiast. It is eminently suitable for both spirited open-air motoring and vintage events or club meets.
Bespoke financial arrangements are available to assist in the purchase of this car.
