Automotive collectors have a variety of compelling reasons for collecting classic Porsches. These vehicles are valuable investments because there are several models that were limited editions when they were new. Drivers who collect classic automobiles also like classic Porsches because they provide a window into a past era of high-performance vehicles. Few classic cars perform as well as the 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster.
The 1955 version of the Speedster has become one of the essential classic cars for many collectors. This simple vehicle features a no-nonsense manual transmission that lets you shift gears in the 1600cc engine. The speedometer and other dials are simple to read with placement behind the oversize steering wheel. This wheel is a 3-spoke wood and alloy piece that is customary in all early-model Porsches.
Collecting Classic Porsches Without the Sales Pitch
The most important factor that will lead you toward a 1955 Porsche Speedster and other classic cars is the inclusion of original parts. The cloth top on the original was incredibly durable and designed especially for the conversion device. The alloy spare wheel was full-sized in the original version to keep drivers on the road, even in the case of a flat tire.
