Max Hoffman's good instinct for the automotive needs of his customers was responsible for the creation of a Porsche legend. Hoffman demanded from Zuffenhausen a light, open and inexpensive sports car.
The car should be efficient and have the lowest possible air resistance. Ferry Porsche took up Hoffman's suggestion and the Porsche 356 Speedster was born. The Hoffman sales organization offered the new sporty and fuel-efficient 356 model for US$2,995.
Right from the start, the model delighted numerous customers. Used in everyday life as a daily driver and at the weekend for many also as sports equipment at racing events that were taking place all over the country at the time.

The vehicle in detail

The official Porsche Kardex card for this specimen shows that the Porsche Speedster was delivered to the American Porsche importer Max Hoffman in New York on November 6th, 1957 in the coveted and extremely rare color Meissen Blue.
In the further documentation that is available for the vehicle, it can be seen that the American Tom Agostini from Portland, Oregon acquired the Porsche 356 in the mid-1980s. He subsequently sold it to its next owner in the late 1980s. This Porsche enthusiast would then own and maintain the car for over 20 years.
When our customer and current owner bought the Speedster in 2012 it was painted red with a black interior. Finally, he had the car restored to its original color combination. So today it shines in Meissen blue with a red interior. He then imported the vehicle to Germany.
