 Vehicle Description
The 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster has proven to be classic that will always be in demand. More than just rarity, the mix of sleek style with a race-ready construction have made these an everlasting icon. So to find one in a beautiful triple-black presentation is the kind classic that makes you immediately take notice.br / brbr This was born a black car, and it has received proper attention throughout its lifetime. That means this is the kind of classic that gives off the exact right presentation. The high-gloss paint loves to highlights the curves that made the original Porsche an icon. But it takes more than high luster paint for this level of presentation. The panels line up nicely so light evenly rolls across the body, and the side trim appears like a virtually unbroken line. And speaking of trim, this one has the extra details youll love, like the stone guards over the headlights and the gold badging that looks awesome against the black paint. While all Speedsters look great with the top down, the black roof really adds an extra dimension to this one. After all, we all love the all-black appearance, and the folding roof and side curtains have the look and fit of quality. And the Speedsters special low windshield and roof combo give this the sleeker profile that instantly remind you of the Speedsters race-ready history.br / brbr The black interior completes the very desirable triple-black presentation. Youll also notice that the full midnight packaging has great details, like a correct weave charcoal gray carpeting and bold red piping on the sport seats. One of the great stories of the Speedster was that it was built to be a lower-cost Porsche, but it was never intended to be cheap. So while they removed items like roll-up windows, the coachbuilders at Reutter delivered the same level of careful precision expected from well-crafted German automobile. So the result was a lighter vehicle that still had the feeling of quality. And you continue to see that everywhere on this example, right down to the details like the dual-spoke Porsche steering wheel and correct VDO gauges with luminescent paint.br / brbr The badging below the engine lid hints at the upgrade within. This Speedster has been given the larger heart of a 1600 S motor. At first, this upgrade will not be too easy to notice, because the engine bay has the proper look from the 356 era. And everything is clean and tidy, right down to the toppers on the dual Zenith carburetors. More than just look ready to show off, this motor fires up and idles with the kind of energy that lets you know an enthusiast maintained it correctly. But where youll really appreciate this upgrade is out on the road. After all, the Speedster was all about performance through lightness, and now youve combined a weight savings with a power upgrade. The sound of the high-performance air-cooled motor, the control of the four-speed manual transmission, and the grip of new Vredestein tires all combine to deliver a confident feeling on the road. So it makes for a classic youll love to drive, and you also know its a thrill few others have experienced.br / brbr This triple-black Speedster is on a list of dream cars. And one lucky person gets to make it a reality.br/br/
