The Porsche 356 1600 Speedster
A project conceived back in 1947 and begun a year later, the Porsche 356 has long since become a milestone in the history of sports cars. The forefather of the legendary Porsche 911 was the first car to have officially carried the Porsche name. What started as a hand-crafted mini series, was continuously developed until 1965. Racing successes very soon led to this car being very popular, and sales figures rose. In total, over 76,000 Porsche 356 were produced until April 1965, and being able to distinguish the various models of this type with all their detail differences has become a science in itself.
As the successor of the "Knickscheiben model" with its bent windscreen, the Porsche 356 A was launched to the public at the IAA Frankfurt in the autumn of 1955 and was produced until 1959. It was sold as a coupé, coupé with hardtop, cabriolet and Speedster - with a total of 5 different engines during the production period. The "Speedster" model was originally only built for export to USA. The Speedster was an open sports car with a flat windscreen and a fully retractable, lower convertible top than in the cabriolet. The doors did not have wind-up windows, instead, as an optional extra, they had window inserts. Standard bucket seats underline the sporty character of the model, whereby many customers chose to pay extra for the optional sports seats. In 1956,just 850 Speedsters were built.
This Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster (T1) was sold as a new car in the USA in 1956 and was registered for many decades to Dave Bogges from Waterville, Ohio. In 1992 Bogges sold the Speedster to Richard D. Kennedy from Wakaponeta, Ohio, who had it completely restored. We were able to purchase this vehicle in 2013 from his estate. The vehicle has since been completely overhauled from a technical viewpoint and converted to the Europe version by a Porsche specialist company in Germany. This Speedster will be serviced and given its TÜV and old-timer H-plates before being handed over to its new owner, and is both optically and technically in excellent condition.
