A unique Vintage SpyderTM replica ready for summer cruisin'
This charming 2002 reproduction of what is possibly the most famous race car of all time is both streetworthy and eye-catching. This particular specimen is notably one of the finest and most well-crafted replicas of the famous Porsche Spyder which debuted at the Paris Auto Show in 1953.
Inspired by both Porsche's own 356 model and contemporary spyder prototypes, the Porsche 550 is probably best known for being the car in which actor James Dean ultimately met his end. With its vestigal windshield and mid-engine design, the 550 was slung so low to the ground that former Formula 1 racer Hans Herrmann once drove one under closed railroad crossing gates during the 1954 Mille Miglia!
