Bill Devin was actually a car nut and, like many others dreamers of his era he wanted to build the sports car of his dreams: he did it and so he leaved his mark in the automotive history.
Of course the easiest way to do it was to rely on an qualified and versatile chassis like the Porsche or VW Beetle units: you could build the car by yourself or order a finished car. As the period adverting said, “the D model is complete with laminated safety glass windshield, folding soft top, side curtains, a hand-rubbed lacquer body, upholstery, leather-covered bucket seats, chrome bumpers, brake and fuel lines, all working, head and tail lights, parking and directional lights, and a built-in heavy-duty frame.”
This particular car is said to be a “Porsche” but the engine actually installed looks like a VW single port, much less powerful than the entry-level Porsche in 1960. Then there is the body which is remarkably straight and the floors which looks dry: the paint is speculated to be original but you never know. The spartan interior has nothing but two seats, a dashboard with a speedometer only and a steering wheel, but it’s just like you expect it to be on a car like this.
