Up for auction is this 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster replica by Vintage Speedsters. Completed in 2018 and titled as a 1967 Volkswagen, this replica is presented in Ivory over red leather and features an air-cooled flat-four engine paired with a 4-speed manual gearbox. With just under 200 miles showing on the odometer, this newly built Speedster replica is now being offered for auction by its second owner out of California.
The handcrafted fiberglass bodywork is finished in Ivory, and a tan German canvas soft top is equipped along with matching side curtains and a boot cover. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery. Some visual highlights include Porsche Speedster badging, dual side-view mirrors, mesh headlight grilles, and 356-style 16” wide-five wheels with chrome nipple hubcaps.
The cabin of this Speedster is appointed with tan square weave carpeting and red leather upholstery on the dashboard, door panels, and bucket seats. Other features include a Nardi-style wood-rimmed steering wheel, 356-style instrument gauges with green numerals, a red leather shift boot, black lap belts, and heater vents in the front footwells. The seller reports all gauges and accessories to be working properly.
The rear wheels are driven by way of a dual-carbureted 1915cc air-cooled flat-four engine paired with a 4-speed 3:88 manual transmission. Stopping power is provided by disc brakes at all four corners and sway bars are equipped for improved handling. Barely 200 miles have been covered since the completion of the build and there are no outstanding maintenance items reported by the seller.
This sale will include a clean title. Offering the iconic styling and visceral air-cooled experience of the original 356 Speedster, this newly built replica provides a fantastic opportunity for any passionate driver.
