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.

The Porsche 356 Speedster is one of the most beautiful cars that the company has ever made. It is amazing to think that the open-aired sports car is now worth a lot of money, when at one time it was the cheapest car you could buy from Porsche.

This video is of an owner of a beautifully restored 356 Speedster. He talks about what he loves about driving the classic car. It also shows what the car looked like before it was restored and this gives you a greater appreciation for the work that went into the restoration.

The Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster is a fairly rare car. The rear-engined sports car takes styling queues from the 356 Speedster but with lines that were modern in its day. The special 911 is perfect for places with sunny weather as the car doesn’t have a traditional convertible top (although a top could be purchased).

This video shows a 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster that was captured in Germany. The footage shows the classic lines of the open-air two seater and all the styling details.

Let us know what you think of the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster in the comments.
