Vehicle Description

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, 1957 PORSCHE 356 SPEEDSTER BUILT BY THE BEST, VINTAGE SPEEDSTER, WITH JUST 3490 MILES...NEAR FLAWLESS CONDITION!! This attention getting, beautiful, 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Replica is an absolute blast to drive and is practically brand new with just under 3500 miles!! That's correct, I did say Replica, but not just any replica....this Speedster was hand built by Vintage Speedsters out of California, the #1 builder of Porsche Speedster Replicas. They are a California company that has built 90% of all of the Porsche Speedster replicas on the market and their quality is top notch! Vintage Speedsters uses a custom built, jig welded 2×4″ 11 gauge steel frame. This rigid new structure retains the original VW pan designed by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche and integrates the largest frame possible. In addition the steering wheel is offset slightly just as it was in the original Speedster. While the original Speedsters are certainly a rare breed, these Vintage Speedster replicas are rare in their own right with roughly only 3000 built. I actually sold this Speedster to a local buyer about 18 months ago. He absolutely loved the car and only put about 800 miles on it during his ownership. With 2 kids and a busy lifestyle he realized he was not using the car as much as he had hoped and decided it was time to let it go to the next lucky owner to enjoy..maybe you!!!? I have the car in my showroom and it looks as good as when I sold it to him. He is a true car enthusiast and took meticulous care of the car. It actually runs even better as he had it tuned and dialed in to perform at its best. I am confident the next lucky owner is going to be absolutely thrilled when this awesome Speedster arrives in their driveway. This particular Aquamarine over Wine beauty was built in 2012 for a gentleman who was from California and recently had moved to Florida. He actually knew the owner of Vintage Speedster and had owned several Speedsters before this one. A recent move to Florida and a busier lifestyle with 2 kids made him realize he just was not driving this one enough to justify keeping it. This is obvious from the super low mileage. It runs fantastic and the color combination is quite stunning and adds to the authenticity. The original owner chose an original color combination when he had this one built. It is an eye catching Aquamarine metallic with Wine colored interior and a black top. Even hard core Porsche enthusiasts would be easily fooled that this is not the real deal worth well over $100,000. These Vintage Speedster replicas are an amazing value and a blast to drive at highway speeds or just around town. This car handles extremely well too!! As mentioned the body on this Aquamarine Porsche Speedster is in near flawless condition and turns heads wherever it goes. With just under 3500 miles put on it in the 4 years since it was built, it has always been pampered and detailed and the paint looks practically brand new. Body panel fit is fantastic and the doors on this car open and shut like a new Porsche. Everyone who looks at the car is very impressed by the fit and finish. The only thing I noticed that keep me from saying that it is absolutely perfect is about 3-4 extremely tiny rock chips that have been touched up. Other than that it looks like new. All of the chrome trim, badges, and glass look fantastic. The color really stands out on this car and truly matches the class and great lines of this Speedster. Although the best way to enjoy this beautiful Speedster is with the top down it is also nice to know that if needed this Speedster also has a full convertible top that is easy to put up or down as well as side windows that insert easily. When enjoying this beauty with the top down you have 2 different boot/tonneau cover options. You can simply snap the boot cover over the convertible top area, or place the tonneau cover on which can cover 3/4 of the cabin while you are driving alone and can be zipped up to cover the entire cab area when you leave the car to keep the interior protected. The Aquamarine exterior is complimented by a beautiful Wine Red interior. This was an original Porsche color combination and it is truly stunning. Seats are in near perfect condition showing practically no wear. Beautiful Nardi Wood Steering wheel with Porsche Crest center. Simplistic gauges in the dash all work correctly. Lights and turn signals all function correctly. Matching wine red shifter boot, e-brake cover and dash all in near flawless condition. Nice set of black cocoa mats. Rear seating area is padded to match and lets face it is really more of a storage area then a seat. If needed this Speedster also has heat for those cool fall drives through the mountains. Just a beautifully designed interior that looks just like the real deal and in close to new condition I have owned quite a few of the Vintage Speedsters so I knew what to expect when this one arrived. However, when I got my first one I have to admit I was a little skeptical about how much fun it would be to drive. Well, after driving the first one we owned I was immediately a fan…after enjoying this Aquamarine on a nice ride today I am still a huge fan!!! I have driven plenty of high horsepower muscle cars, newer Corvettes, BMW’s and Porsches but these little Speedsters have truly won me over!! It has a serious fun factor to it unlike anything else. This Speedster has just under 3500 miles on the 1600 cc, single carb air cooled Volkswagen motor and the engine compartment is clean as a whistle. While we have had a few with the larger 1915 cc motors and dual carbs I have to say I feel little to no difference in the performance of this one compared to those. In fact the original owner confirmed that he chose this set up because his previous one had the dual carb larger motor and it seemed to need contestant tuning and he felt this set up would be perfect for the kind of sunny day driving he planned on using it for...I agree with him and think the next owner will be thrilled with the current set up. This car has just been serviced, tuned and fresh oil change so the new owner should not need to do a thing. This particular speedster also has the upgraded 3:88 4-speed transmission shifts smoothly and takes this little roadster up to speed quickly with no problem and sounds great doing it! This one also has front disc brakes making stopping a breeze. When the original owner had this one built he also had them lower about 1" for better handling. This little roadster really handles the road well and to me feels like a Porsche 911 on the road. Maintenance is cheap and easy on this car and any foreign car mechanic should be able to do a valve adjustment and tune up every 3-4,000 Miles to keep it running great. The wheels look great with the chrome baby moon hub caps and tires have 90% tread. There is nothing this car needs but you in the drivers seat!!! Undercarriage looks great! Plenty of storage in the front trunk area so go ahead and take that weekend trip to the mountains or the beach…this will be the ride of your life. Make sure you leave a little extra time for all the questions and conversations you will have with folks who stop you. Check it out and also be sure to listen to the video to hear this baby start up and running. Asking price is $28,900 and serious buyers can call me at 770-359-8400.
