1957 Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster - "Less is more" - from economy model to legend

Max Hoffman's good instinct for the automotive needs of his customers was responsible for creating a Porsche legend. Hoffman demanded a light, open and inexpensive sports car from Zuffenhausen. The car should be efficient and have the lowest possible air resistance. Ferry Porsche took up Hoffman's suggestion that the Porsche 356 Speedster was created. The Hoffman sales organization offered the new sporty and economical 356 model for $ 2,995. The model impressed numerous customers right from the start. 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.

Details

The example presented here was delivered to MAHAG in Munich on May 9, 1957 for their US customers in white, coupé seats and sealed beam lamps.

The car was partially restored in the 1970s by passionate Porsche enthusiasts in California, USA, using apparently very good original material.

We have checked the car in detail and can confirm with a clear conscience that it is an exceptionally beautiful Speedster example. The car still has its first original matching numbers engine and first original gearbox. All body parts are marked with the appropriate numbers! In addition, the Speedster was equipped with original Kronprinz central locking rims in the 1970s, which are worth between € 40,000 and € 50,000. This is very rare and makes the car special.

The car has been in expert Porsche hands since March 2007 and has been well looked after over the years. We are pleased to be able to offer you this beautiful 1600 Speedster!
