Porsche cars by the 1950s were on their... way to establishing the company as the motorsports leader that it remains today.During this period Porsche cars were already making their mark in America when the US Porsche distributor Max Hoffman asked Porsche to design a sports car that would be both competitive, durable, and more reliable against the lower priced British sports cars.Porsche's answer was a lightweight version of the 356; the Speedster with its distinct lines, excellent balance, lowered removable windscreen, side curtains, minimal trim, and very capable performance. The Speedster was a must have for any serious racer during the 1950's.The iconic Speedster still remains one of the most desirable vintage collectible Porsches today.According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and Kardex:This 1957 356A / 1600 S Speedster (serial number 82909, Production was completed at the Porsche factory on January 18th, 1957, Original factory options included Sealed Beam Headlights, Rear Seat, and USA Bumpers.
