This Porsche 356 A Speedster’s Been Given The Outlaw Restomod Treatment

Penned by Erwin Komenda, Porsche’s 356 A is one of the most celebrated car designs ever conceived, remaining an automotive icon after more than half-a-century in existence. So, needless to say, setting out to improve upon Komenda’s design is an incredibly ambitious endeavor, though it’s hard to deny the visual improvements bestowed upon this absolutely stunning 1958 356 A Speedster.

Modifications to the Speedster are minimal yet transformative, consisting of chrome grilled headlights supplemented via a pair of yellow fog lights, bespoke back cover air intakes, a GT-rod-equipped bumper, and grid lights. Collectively these changes afford the Porsche a markedly more unique and modern appearance, without compromising the distinctive look of the factory model. This example is powered by a restored stock mill — that’s been fitted with a central Carrera exhaust — though is sold with an included second engine for track and rally use, as well as a removable hardtop. Riding on magnesium wheels, this ’58 specimen also features disc brakes front and back, stabilizer bars, and adjustable dampers, and was also recently treated to a heavily-documented, ground-up restoration. This modified 1958 Porsche 356 A Speedster is available for purchase through France’s Serge Heitz, where the price is available upon request.
