Car of the Week - September 1st, 2011
When it comes to small displacement sports cars from the 1950s and 1960s, it’s hard to beat the Porsche 356. These cars are excellent performers and reliable daily drivers, and they feature smart engineering that in their day let them compete toe to toe with much more powerful cars.
Although the 356 came in a number of different versions, the Speedster has become the ultimate example, at least among collectors.
James’ Speedster is an ex-racer turned weekend driver, but it still sports a red Pegasus on the front fender, which serves as a good reminder of this car’s competition past. It looks to be in excellent overall condition, and it has a great stance on chrome rims.
Speedsters have been in demand for quite some time, with recent prices ranging from $92k to $130k, depending on condition. But regardless of value, it doesn’t sound like James will be letting this one go any time soon.
