Star City Motors presents this very cool 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Replica for sale. This turn-key high quality re-creation is among the finest available. Built and finished to mimic the original 356 – minus the six figure price tag. This example is finished in classic Silver-on-Black. Built in 2011 on a 1966 VW chassis. Mileage since completion is 2763. Powered by a 1600cc dual weber 4-cylinder boxer engine, and 4-speed manual freeway flyer transmission with 3.88 gears. Front disk brakes. Soft convertible top, with soft side windows, also comes with a tonneau cover, and "half moon" top cover. Fiberglass body on a steel/reinforced pan, rear engine, rear wheel drive with front disk brakes.
The speedster replica was born in the 1970s. Early manufacturers used a shortened VW pan and did not adequately reinforce the body. This led to the infamous “jack test”. If one were to lift the car with a jack, due to the body flex, the car doors would no longer close properly. Vintage Speedsters engineered a new type of structurestarting with our first speedster produced in 1988. Vintage Speedsters uses a custom built, jig welded, 2x4 inch 11-gauge steel frame. An original VW pan is restored, shortened and welded to the new steel skeleton. The rigid new structure retains the original VW pan design and integrates the largest frame possible. All of cars built by Vintage Speedster easily pass the “jack test”. In addition, the steering wheel is offset slightly, just as an original speedster.
While some manufacturers will lead the customer to believe the use of a VW pan is inferior, it’s hard to argue with some facts. 1) Volkswagen produced over 21,000,000 cars using the pan design. 2) Vintage Speedsters hand built over 3000 speedsters as of 2013. 3) Vintage Speedsters builds more than 90% of the speedsters being sold today. Vintage Speedsters was established in 1987 and as of Jul 2013, hand built over 3000 Speedsters. Vintage speedsters produces more cars in one week, than some so-called manufacturers do in a year. Made with pride in USA (Southern California)
