Auction Block: 1957 Porsche Speedster

No matter how old we get or how much our value systems may change or where our career takes us in life, owning a classic Porsche convertible will always be a foundational element in our definition of ‘cool.’ There’s no escaping it, and admiring this black 1957 Porsche Speedster will only make it worse. But lust after her we must. Her beauty demands it.

This mint condition convertible is yet another offering by auction house RM Sotheby’s. It’s an extremely rare find, especially in this condition, hosting all the favorite features from the mid-century. We’re talking the wraparound windshield, the small yet iconic and retractable top, twin bucket seats, and that lower door waistline which pairs quite well with the clean black paint job. The 356 A 1600 was quite a find back in the day, though with a little bit of luck and a lot more coin, you could very well be cruising up Pacific Coast Highway in this beauty after the auction this January. Best of luck. [Purchase]
