Blue but green: 1958 Porsche 356 Speedster


An icon needs no introduction unless, as on this occasion, it is not perfectly original, starting from the color.


Well, the color is a good surprise because although the car is now blue, it was born in the color Fjord Green, very particular and quite rare on a Speedster; as for the rest, we have a redundant engine from a 912 therefore not original but, on the other hand, 20 hp more powerful than the more powerful engine installed on a stock Speedster (if we exclude the unreachable Carrera, of course).


95 hp give this car the panache that was perhaps lacking in origin, although the originality is less. It also seems that the brakes and hubs have been taken from a C or a 912 and this, from the handling point of view, is good news. In short, we are in front of a car that will not win competitions of originality, which purists will not like but which will give its new owner the opportunity to get his hands on a good Speedster, at a high but not insane price. Find it for sale at $229,500 here in Astoria, NY.
