Porsche is a German luxury automobile manufacturer founded in 1931 by Ferdinand Porsche. The company is known for producing high-performance sports cars, SUVs, and sedans. One of the most iconic models produced by Porsche is the 550 Spyder. The 550 Spyder was introduced in 1953 and was designed as a lightweight and agile sports car. It was powered by a four-cylinder engine and had a top speed of around 140 mph. The 550 Spyder quickly gained a reputation for its handling and performance and raced in various events worldwide. Owning a Porsche 550 is a dream come true for many enthusiasts, as only 90 examples were made. A rare chance is at hand in owning this 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder Replica.
This 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder Replica comes finished in an enigmatic black color. The front fascia features Porsche's typical large round headlights flanking the Porsche badged frunk. Lower can be seen two air intakes flanked by turn lights. The side front quarter panels feature a trio of stacked badging with the side mirrors on top of the side fender. The car features a curved design on the way to the back, with the driver's side having a raised headrest. A pair of leather straps secure access to the mid-rear mounted engine, and it opens away from the car. It sits on a set of chrome OEM wheels. A classic pairing is a red interior to the black exterior, which adds class to it. Behind the 3-spoke aluminum and wood-finished steering wheel can be seen a trio of instrument clusters with the speedometer in the middle. The manual gear lever is topped off with a Porsche crest inlaid gear knob. The interior carpeting is also finished in a shade of red.
Originally the Porsche 550 Spyder was equipped with a 1.5L flat-four engine. This 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder Replica comes with a fresh rebuild on the 2165cc engine, including dual Weber IDF carburetors and a 4-speed manual transmission. The current owner reports that a deep sump flow oil system is installed along the disc brakes on the four corners. The current owner also believes the car is a Beck but needs supporting documentation to establish it.
