Vehicle Description

1956 Porsche Speedster - Outlaw

VIN 82851 completed December 21, 1956

Very early T1 Beehive Speedster built for the 1957-year model. Same owner for the past 25 years who purchased this Speedster from the Norm Kaiser Collection who had this 356 since the early 1980s.

Finished in a beautiful color combination Slate Gray (single-stage Glasurit) with a Navy Blue interior. Very straight body with great gaps and panel fit. Options include two tops, a Glasspar style hardtop finished in black, a high bow soft top finished in black cloth by Autos International, GT style louvered rear deck lid, Spyder steering wheel, pickle fork wiper blades, GT style rims - custom Billet alloy rims (15" x 5.5"), Vredstein 185/70 tires, Bullet lug nuts, front sway bar, Koni shocks, and a 741 short shift linkage.

The driveline has been upgraded with a powerful 100-horsepower 912 engine (type 616/36), rebuilt for longevity & performance using the best components by Tollie Keller. A late 741 manual 4-speed transmission (# 70907) was rebuilt by Airport Air-cooled with a tall 4th gear for freeway driving. A ZF steering box was installed along with 356C four-wheel disc braking system.

Some of the details include Victor Miles restored T1 square door handles and the shine down license plate light and the gauges have been restored by Palo Alto Speedometer. A new wiring harness was installed, all of the electrical components have been converted to a 12-volt system, LED lighting and NOS switches.

Everything has been replaced with NOS parts or restored. This Speedster drives like a dream and connects you to the road like no other car, very fun to drive with plenty of power, smooth shifting transmission, and great braking. If you have been after a fun Speedster to drive at a reasonable price look no further!
