1962 Porsche 356 Vintage Speedster Recreation For SaleThis Porsche 356 Vintage Speedster is a recreation of the original, and has been put for sale by us on behalf of the owner. The car is built by the renowned American company Vintage Speedsters (http://www.vintagespeedsters.com), which has assembled more than 3.300 Speedsters.
Lammertink Classics, part of Porsche Centrum Twente, brought this Speedster to the Netherlands, did a full check-up and - when necessary - made improvements. In 2011, Porsche Center Enter registered this car as demonstration model. The current and first owner bought the car in 2013, with 600 km on the odometer. Today, the odometer indicates a modest 8,000 km. The car is almost as new and is one of the top models when it comes to replica’s of the iconic Porsche.
Under the hood, this Speedster boasts a shortened chassis of the VW Beetle from 1962. A steel subframe has been mounted on top, which gives the car a certain stiffness. Thanks to the high build quality, 90% of the Speedster recreations come from the American constructor.
Most Speedsters have a 1.600cc air-cooled engine; this model, however, has a more powerful 1.915cc air-cooled engine with twin carburetters, delivering 90hp. This powerful engine is coupled with a 3:88 shift gear. Thanks to the optional dual exhaust, the Speedster produces an impressive roar, that will be music to every enthusiast’s ears. The driver doesn’t have to worry about braking power: this model has optional disc brakes.
Because of the year of manufacture, this car is exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty and periodic vehicle inspection. Keep in mind (especially for insurance purposes) that this car has a costly track-and-trace system.
In the winter of 2015, the car has been serviced thoroughly (invoices available upon request).
The Speedster has a polyester body. The finish was not perfect, so before delivery, the body received a new layer of lacquer in 5404 Elfenbein Weiss, the original Porsche colour.
The body is as new and completely damage-free. The golden letters and emblems are originals from Porsche, including the contemporary Reuter logo. The convertible cloth top and windows come in crème colour and look as new (the car has always been parked in a heated garage). A tailor-made cloth is provided to store the Speedster.
It’s the details that make this Speedster so special. For example: the car comes with special “white wall” tyres, Carrera filler cap, luxury blue registration plates and aluminium trims.
The interior has been upholstered in a glowing crème colour that complements the white lacquer well. The bucket seats keep you in place and are upholstered with imitation leather. The wooden Nardi steering wheel with original Porsche horn button and the minimalist dashboard make you forget that you’re actually in a replica. Moreover, you’ll find a 12V connector. The odometer uses km.
A recent estimation from March 2016, conducted by a Fehac certified valuer, indicates a value of €45,000, and is available for inspection upon request.
This car has been featured in an article for the magazine Autoreview, back then still in the original green lacquer. Link to the article: http://www.autoreview.nl/rij-impressie/365-speedster-vs-moto-guzzi-v7-racer-2/429/
