Vehicle Story

This 1957 Porsche 356 replica was manufactured in 2014 by Vintage Speedsters. The red body work features grid-like covers over the round headlights, side mirrors mounted on top of the front fenders, body side trim bars, a tan fabric top, and color-coordinated removable side windows. There are two tonneau covers. One is for the top area and the other can be used to protect the interior, which features a three-spoke steering wheel, two seats, and air conditioning. Power comes from a modified 1973 Volkswagen engine with dual carburetors. A 4-speed manual transmission and 15-inch wheels put the engine's output to the road. Located in Phoenix, Arizona, this Porsche replica is available now with a clear title marking this vehicle as a 1957 Porsche in the seller's name.

As the badging indicates, this replica was inspired by the 1600 Super Speedster version of the Porsche 356A, the successor to the 356. It comes finished in red paint complemented with chrome bumper trim, headlight rings, side mirror housings, and body accent bars. Fifteen-inch wheels bookend the rub strips below the doors.

The seller notes that there are two tonneau covers. One fits over the space for the tan fabric top; the other is meant to protect the two-seat interior and can be adjusted to cover the passenger side or both sides. A pair of side windows that match the roof can be inserted to form a closed cockpit. 

The cockpit is furnished with horizontally ribbed tan seats with lap belts, coordinated door panels, and a body-color dashboard with Porsche and Carrera badging topped with tan trim. The three-spoke steering wheel sits in front of a gauge pod that features a 130-mph speedometer, an odometer showing 22,850 miles, and a tachometer, as well as readouts for other information.

Other equipment includes air conditioning and what the seller describes as a "modern radio." The carpeted front trunk area contains a spare wheel and tire.

For the 1957 model year, Porsche released a T2 version of the 356A with modified exhaust routing for the 1,600cc engine and Zenith instead of the previous Solex carburetor hardware. This 356A Speedster replica is equipped with a modified 1973 Volkswagen engine with dual carburetors, according to the seller. It channels its output through a 4-speed manual gearbox, which the seller reports had its transmission linkage tightened. The VW engine breathes through an exhaust system with dual pipes that exit below the rear bumper.

According to Vintage Speedsters, it bases its builds on an original Volkswagen pan that is restored, shortened, and welded to a custom-built 11-gauge steel frame.

The current owner has had the car for the past 6 years and 6,000 miles. They report the last service was performed 1,000 miles ago. Unspecified documentation pertaining to this car is available.

I have one of the original Speedster replicas built around 1990 by Vintage Speedsters when they were in california. It is also titled as a 1957 Porsche. Let me just say that this is one of the most fun cars I have ever had (out of more than 100). It's a blast to drive; handles like a go-kart; everyone always has a compliment. Prices are all over the board depending on options, but hell, if you're looking for FUN/$$$, this is high value. GLWTA and congrats to the future owner.

How is it or how can a replica be titled as a 1957 Porsche when it is built with a late model VW chassis and engine? There’s nothing 1957 about this car.
