A professionally built recreation of one of Porsche’s most iconic sports cars, this 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster replica was crafted by Vintage Speedsters of Hawaiian Gardens, California. Powered by a 1,915cc flat-four engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission, this example is presented in grey over red vinyl upholstery. Driven approximately 8k kilometers (5k miles) since the completion of the build, this Speedster replica is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Oregon.
The handcrafted fiberglass bodywork comes finished in grey with a black convertible soft top. Appointments include teardrop-style taillights, chrome brightwork, a black-finished driver’s side mirror, headlight cages, yellow-tinted driving lights, leather hood-retaining straps, a central exhaust outlet, and Mobil Pegasus graphics on the front fenders. It rides on paint-matched 15” Vintage 190 steel wheels with aluminum hubs and Pirelli P4 tires from 2008. The seller notes very slight paint flaws along the hood & driver’s side door, and touch-up paint will accompany the sale. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin presents red vinyl upholstery with low-back bucket seats and a color-coordinated dashboard and door panels. Equipment includes lap belts, a gold-finished Porsche badge along the dashboard, a wooden steering wheel & shift knob, woven floor mats, and an AM/FM stereo with auxiliary inputs. The seller notes the alternator light flickers on low idle and the horn is currently nonfunctional.
This example equips an air-cooled 1,915cc flat-four engine featuring dual carburetors and an external oil cooler. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. Stopping power is provided by disc brakes in the front and rear drums. The seller adds that a recent oil change was carried out in preparation for the sale.
This sale will include a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “This car is an attention-getter. It turns heads and gets a thumbs up just about every mile you drive it. While I haven't had it long (selling due to medical issues), it's been a joy each time out. Always stored in a climate-controlled garage. Fresh oil. It's a unique car with the perfect color combination, in my humble opinion.”
