This attention getting, beautiful, 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Replica is an absolute blast to drive and is practically brand new with just under 2700 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. 
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. He 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!! 
This would definitely be a great addition to any car guy or gals collection, or perfect for someone looking for a truly unique, sports car investment that can be driven anywhere as well as taken to the car shows and cruise-ins. I will do my best to provide enough large images and a video of the car running to help you decide if this beauty should be in your garage this Spring!  As with all of my auctions I encourage serious buyers to call me to ask any questions and potentially negotiate a price that would buy this classic before another car guy or gal scoops it up. Sit back and enjoy!!

As mentioned the body on this Aquamarine Porsche Speedster is in near flawless condition and turns heads wherever it goes. With just under 2700 miles put on it in the 3 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. Here is a walk around photo tour of the body:

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…have a look

This is the 4th Vintage Speedster we have owned so we knew what to expect when this one arrived. However, when we got our 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 2700 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 previous 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.  The car had 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 previous 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

Hopefully you agree that this is just an awesome looking little Speedster Replica. It is in amazing condition and is an absolute blast to drive. People will be stopping you left and right asking you what it is or wondering if it is an original….that will be up to you to tell them…believe me it is hard to tell!  This is truly a sun in your face, wind in your hair, super fun roadster that you can drive and enjoy and take to the shows and cruise-ins. It is registered as a 1965 Volkswagen which is what the floor pan came from. It has a valid California title that will be transferred to the next lucky owner.   Don’t let this one pass you by… Don’t you deserve it???
