Auction Block: 1956 Porsche 356 A Super Speedster

Jun 1, 2018

Category: Rides

The Porsche 356 Speedster was top of the line in 1956. Though it has since been eclipsed in performance by its many sports car successors, the ’56 maintains a special place in automotive history – and now, one of these benchmark Speedsters is going up for sale. A pristinely upkept 1956 Porsche 356 A Super Speedster is headed to auction, and it’s revving collectors’ engines.

With only 35,000 miles on the odometer, and a close to full coherence of original parts – including side curtains, tool roll, jack, spare tire, manual, and even a century-old leather key fob – the speedster is a true time capsule. Though technically, three prototypes were produced by Porsche prior to WWII, most experts consider the 356 to be the Austrian company’s first production model. One of the most unique cars you’ll encounter, this particular Speedster was just one of 645 models produced that year – likely far fewer of which were maintained to such a high standard. Unblemished and unaltered, it’s as if this porcelain-colored Porsche was fixed in amber. If you’ve got the dough, it can become a fixture in your garage.
