Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster

Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster

Roadster, 1957


  • Matching numbers engine
  • Offered from long term owner ship
  • Beautiful and desirable early T2 model


Completed at the Zuffenhausen-based Porsche Works in 1957, this spectacular Speedster was built as a 1958 model-year car, as an early and desirable T2 incorporating the mechanical and cosmetic upgrades introduced for the now legendary model during the production run. The new T2 Speedster was completed with a Aquamarine Blue exterior over a Black leatherette interior. The Porsche was destined for the North American market, where Max Hoffman’s famous Porsche agency is recorded as having been the importer.

The original ultimate US destination for this Porsche is unfortunately unknown at this time, but the Speedster is recorded to have been in San Francisco. The last owner, a German enthusiast with an incredible car collection, purchased the car in 2008.

Das Fahrzeug im Detail

The car has an older restoration which dates back to 1992 but is still very much up to date. The restoration was well done with only minor signs of use or patina on the paint and interior. Original parts were kept and restored instead of replaced, and where possible, new old stock Porsche parts were used where needed. The original VDO gauges was restored, while chrome and bright work was restored by the renowned specialists. The gearbox and engine – matching – where restored and still feel solid and fresh to this day. Finished in the classic color combination of black on black, the comprehensive restoration was completed.

As mentioned previously, the original engine has remained with the Porsche since new. In addition, stampings on the front hood, engine lid, and both doors confirm that the body panels are original to the vehicle. Further more, trim and chrome work and lights are all very original. Accompanying this spectacular Speedster is the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity, a copy of the original factory build sheet (Kardex), restoration records, jack, FIVA card, the service booklet and a full tonneau cover

The engine starts at the turn of the key and spins very easy. Gearchanges are smooth and the ride feels very solid; completely free of any weird noises or movements. The 15 inch wheels are fitted with recent Dunlop Sport Classic tyres. Today the odometer indicates 2.400miles, which is assumed to be since its restoration.

This spectacular Speedster would be welcomed at any classic event, or a superb participant in any number of significant rally events. With its original matching-numbers driveline and body panels still intact, its older but comprehensive restoration and desirable T2 specification, this Speedster checks all the boxes. It is the perfect car for someone looking for a true classic car icon.

The 356 Speedster was Porsche’s ultimate expression of the raw sports car, and this example exist as a prime example of one of Stuttgart’s most beloved models.
