Constructed with a curvaceous aluminum body wrapped around a tubular steel ladder chassis that has a 1.5-liter air-cooled flat-4 mid engine, the 550 weighed 550 kilograms (1,213 pounds). With its 135hp engine in such a lightweight, superb handling machine, the 550 beat every other vehicle within its own class and could run with much higher-powered (but heavier) machines.
Only a limited quantity of 4-5 units/year will be available for those customers who understand exclusivity and timing. Our cars are built to exact specifications as in 1955, out of the box and ready to race. The 550 Spyder is considered one of the most desirable and legendary sports racing cars of all time.
Assembled with authentic reproduction- and genuine Porsche parts including a 1950’s period Porsche 356 engine, suspension, drum brakes and steering assembly. ( Optional: Porsche 4-cam engine)
