The vehicle in detail

356 Speedster Background

It was the US importer Max Hoffmann who convinced Porsche there was a market for their cars in America. He requested an inexpensive Porsche with reduced furnishings costing less than 3,000 dollars. In autumn 1954, Porsche produced a significantly less expensive version than the 356 America Roadster, which included ‘Speedster’ in the model name for the first time and quickly caused a sensation in the world of motor sports. It combined the sheet steel body of the cabriolet with a raked windscreen, reduced interior equipment and a rain top. In the USA, the 356 1500 Speedster cost just 2,995 US dollars and became an instant hit in the sunny coastal states.

Between 1954 to 1959 Porsche built 4,144 Speedster’s in total.

The 1958 Speedster type T2 is the most desirable, sought after, and truly the best to drive of all the Speedsters from 1954 to 1958. With the ZF steering box, high bow top frame, and a better shifter position that is closer to the driver, there is nothing better.
