Conceived to meet a specific price point, the Speedster was a purpose-built sporting machine with minimal equipment and no needless accoutrements. Equipped with a revised windshield that significantly lowered the look of the car and gone were unnecessary items. With the reduced weight from the elimination of much of its trim, these Porsches not only look great, but are even more exciting to drive.

According to a copy of its original Kardex, chassis no. 82011 was completed January 19, 1956 in White over Red Leather upholstery, fitted with sealed-beam headlights and speedometer in miles – handled by Hoffman, New York.

The Speedster displays a beautifully matured comprehensive restoration with the benefit of a recent mechanical inspection and tuning for continued enjoyment.
