Auction Block: 1956 Porsche 356 Speedster

May 6, 2021

Category: Rides

While the 911 has been Porsche’s signature vehicle for the bulk of the legendary brand’s lifetime, it’s far from the only stunner to come out of Stuttgart. Before there was the 911, there was the 356: Porsche’s first consumer car and a stone-cold classic in its own right — especially in its open-top Speedster form seen here.

Offered up for auction is this pristine and gorgeous 1956 Porsche 356 Speedster. Lovingly restored in bright red over tan leather with a matching tan soft top, the car houses a rebuilt replacement 616/1 flat-four from 1955 with a 1,720cc big bore kit. The car also possesses overhauled twin Solex carburetors and powder-coated engine tins, along with a slew of replaced parts to keep it in tip-top shape. Recently serviced in April 2021, the car’s odometer reads 16,000 miles, though the actual mileage is unclear. Still, whoever buys this car is unlikely to use it as a daily driver, and it more likely will become a fixture at various Concours d’Elegance. And it should, as all of the beautiful details on this car, from the gold decal lettering to the included side curtains, make it one breathtaking showpiece. Head on over to Bring A Trailer to make it yours, so long as you can beat the current $175,000 bid.
