As the exclusive East Coast dealer for Vintage Motorcars of CA I am proud to offer this BRAND NEW 356 Speedster Replica finished in an original 356 color called Slate Gray. I have bought and sold used 356 Speedster Replicas, built by various manufacturers , for over 10 years so I have seen quite a few. I can honestly say that the product being put out by Vintage Motorcars of CA is simply a notch above what was being produced in the same facility for over 30 years. Everything from Paint and body quality, performance, options, fit and finish and right down to the undercarriage is a notch above!! If you have been considering one of these really cool Speedster replicas you have seen the values of the used ones rise for the past several years. If you appreciate quality and the idea of getting a brand new build, you cannot go wrong purchasing this amazingly hand crafted, brand new, classic replica
These cars are built on custom shortened, reconditioned VW chassis with a reinforced steel sub frame. The car is actually titled as a 1968 VW utilizing the vin number of the VW pan used. The hand laid fiberglass body is top quality and workmanship is second to none. Building Porsche Replicas since 1995 the builders motto is "Quality over quantity" and I can attest to the high level of quality he is producing. In fact, it was because of this attention to detail and quality that I made the commitment to be a dealer for his product. I am 100% confident that the lucky new owner will be absolutely thrilled with the quality and performance of this car...maybe you!!!? Most people have no idea that this is not an original worth well over $150k and it will be up to you if you want to reveal the secret when you get stopped everywhere you go. I will do my best to provide you with enough large images, a video of the car running and an honest description to help you decide if this is the one for you. Sit back and enjoy!!
This particular build was done in an authentic Porsche 356 color called Slate Gray. It is absolutely stunning and looks a little darker in the shade or at night and has a softer hue in the bright sunlight. The fit and finish most likely exceeds the original. As you will see, this one is equipped with a nice set of driving lights. The body is adorned with Porsche badging on the nose, rear and dash. Since this is a BRAND NEW build with under 10 test miles the paint and body are essentially flawless. I always recommend driving these cars top down but of course it also has a brand new black canvas soft top. Window inserts are also provided and a matching boot cover when the top is down for a clean, sophisticated look.
Complementing the authentic Slate Gray exterior is an equally stunning Dark Wine Red interior. The Speedster seats are very comfortable. Door panels are beautifully customized with closing document pockets and polished door pulls. Matching dash pad and passenger side grab handle. Period correct VDO gauges with a digital odometer allow the driver to monitor the speed and performance of this air cooled Speedster. Beautiful Wood Grain steering wheel with a Porsche horn button and vintage style turn signal lever adds to the authenticity. This 356 is also optioned with heated seats for both driver and passenger for those of you in cooler climates. Shelf pad behind the front seats. Dark Gray carpeting throughout and a custom set of Coco mats have been added for that finishing touch. Simply gorgeous interior!!!
Turn the key and let the fun begin!!! As impressed as I was with the cosmetic improvements on these new builds I am equally impressed with the performance these new cars offer. The 1914 cc. is a brand new, fully balanced motor with top quality components from CB Performance. Rated at 110 hp with the dual Kadron carburetors and 8.2:1 compression ratio this motor pulls strong and crisp. I would be happy to provide more technical data on the engine build for those who need it. Transmission is a 4.12 ring and pinion with a .82 4th gear. This combination provides excellent torque and acceleration in 1st-3rd and also allows easy highway cruising at 75 mph. Empi 5 lug 5x205mm 4 wheel disc brakes stop this Speedster precisely with ease. Other features include electronic ignition, stock dog house oil cooler and remote 72pass oil cooler with electric fan thermostatically controlled, silver powder coated Vintage 190 Aluminum 5 lug wheels, and more. Great vintage tone from the dual tip exhaust. The undercarriage is also nicely detailed and floorpan protected with a bed liner material to ensure it lasts the test of time. Make sure you watch the video to hear this car start up and running. These cars handle the road beautifully and are an absolute joy to drive. As mentioned this is a BRAND NEW build and has under 10 test miles.
If you have been considering one of these 356 Speedster replicas this is a top notch build at an excellent value. I have seen the prices on the used ones climb 20% in recent years and expect the prices of the new builds to rise soon as well so this is a great time to buy one. This Slate Gray beauty is ready to go and I can assist with great prices on Enclosed Transport anywhere int he US. I also welcome overseas buyers and can assist in getting the car to the port of your choice. I have several others coming in as well so if you have a color combination that you would like to order please give me a call to discuss. The price on this car is $37,900 and serious buyers can call me at 770-359-8400 to discuss.
