Classic Porsche Speedster Replica
All of our Speedster replicas are made with the best of the best and have the optimal 1900cc engines (most out there today have the basic 1600cc engine). This is one of our classic Speedster cars and has only test miles (odometer in KM). This is your chance to own a truly one of a kind classic that is not only a blast to drive but it's also a pleasure to look at. There is no other car out there that gives you this much styling for the money. In addition to being an absolute blast to drive these are also super reliable with the proven VW drive train. These are also very inexpensive to maintain unlike many old cars out there today. To put it simply, if you are considering a classic car these are the ones to have, you get the classic styling with the new car reliability and maintenance cost of a VW. These cars cannot be beat!
What kind of frame is used?
The speedster replica was born in the 1970's. 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 structure starting 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 our custom built speedsters 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) We build more than 90% of the speedsters being sold today.
How many Vintage Speedsters have been built?
Vintage Speedsters was established in 1987 and as of Jul 2013, we hand built over 3000 Speedsters.
What kind of maintenance is needed?
Vintage Speedsters use VW air-cooled engines. Stock engines will require a valve adjustment and tune-up every 3000 miles. This is a simple process and can be done by any foreign auto mechanic. VW produced over 29 million air-cooled engines, so finding parts and service is never a problem.
Gasoline Octane: 91
Oil Weight: 30W
How is the speedster registered/titled?
They receive a VW title. The year reflects the manufactured year of the original donor pan.
How are smog requirements handled?
Smog is by the year of the chassis, in CA. 1976 and earlier are exempt.
