On June 8th, 1948, the Porsche 356 “No. 1” Roadster received its operating permit. Thus was produced the first sports car that led to vehicles that would set the bar that all other sports cars are measured by.

While the very first Porsche was a mid-engined vehicle, the later 356 models and the 911 would have there engines in the back (although some of Porsche’s successful road and race machines would use a mid-engine layout). With 70 years of history Porsche has made a number of legendary machines.

Cars like the 356, 911, 550 Spyder and 917 are just a few that come to mind. Their cars are so good, for their time, that even Porsche’s less loved models would be the crown jewel in just about any other automaker’s lineup.

To celebrate 70 years of Porsche the German automaker has unveiled a new 911 Speedster Concept car. The special 911 is a modern machine, but incorporates styling elements from various automobiles from its storied past.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has always been a pretty light weight car. While it is very heavy compared to Lotus standards, coming in at just 2,332 pounds, it is about 500 pounds lighter than vehicles like the Subaru BRZ.

But what if it was even lighter? The folks at Mazda decided to find out what the result would be, so they built the MX-5 Miata Spyder and Speedster concepts. Both vehicles will be on display at SEMA starting on November 3rd.

Video: Can A Porsche 356 Speedster Replica Be More Fun Than The Original

The Porsche 356 Speedster is a wonderful classic car. The “problem” with owning one is that even in poor condition they can be worth a lot of money. The prices go even higher if the car is in very good shape.

Because of this very few nice 356 Speedsters are ever driven on the road for more than a couple of miles on rare occasions. Many of these great machines have become museum pieces in their owner’s garage.

It is understandable but still a shame that they aren’t driven regularly. After all Porsches were meant to be driven.

Because of the high value of original cars, many people have bought 356 Speedster Replicas. Even people that own original cars often will also purchase a replica to be driven more often.

Another advantage to replicas is that the cars often use some more modern parts, such as disk brakes, that won’t be on an original car (unless it is updated). It can just be enjoyed without as much fear that something will happen to your pride and joy. Plus they can be wonderful driving cars.

This video captures a replica of a 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster. The footage shows the car driving and captures the great sound of that air-cooled engine. The replica is a well made one that resembles an early racing machine.
