1958 Porsche 356 SpeedsterVery rare and rarely offered high end Speedster build by Intermeccanica; arguably the premier Speedster Replica constructors. Original build cost in excess of $90,000. This is a modernized replica of the iconic 1958 Porsche Speedster. While this car walks and talks like the real thing, under the body there is a completely modern drivetrain with a completely rebuilt liquid cooled and turbocharged 2.5 liter Subaru motor making some 240HP. The motor is, like the original, an opposing 4-cylinder cylinder (boxer) configuration, so the weight is low in the chassis. The motor as 4-valves per cylinder with dual overhead cams, a custom turbocharger, Kinetic Motorsports intercooler and a custom center outlet exhaust. Power is conveyed thru a modern 4-speed transaxle with a reverse lockout shifter. Along with a modern chassis, powertrain, suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes this Speedster has modern amenities on the inside as well. These include air conditioning, AM/FM/CD with Bluetooth, power door locks and roll-up windows, and remote keyless entry. Additionally, because of the modern engine management system, there are no cold startup issues or atmospheric driven problems that can often be experienced with carbureted motors.
For a fraction of the cost of a real Speedster, this car can be driven anywhere in comfort. The A/C works in Florida and does not bog down the motor which is the case with the usual small air cooled motors. The heater works great for winter driving. Nothing better that taking a drive on a cold day with the top down, windows up and heater on high. The car also rides nicely and brakes well, offering an enjoyable sports car experience. The suspension is stiff enough to offer good handling but also compliant enough to make the drive enjoyable for your significant other. This car is certainly up to an extended road trip. Please be advised that you will get noticed a lot when out in this car.
