1958 Porsche 356 - A Speedster
Porsche Speedsters are special cars. Porsche 356s restored by John Willhoit are held to be amongst the best in the world. This 356 Speedster was restored by John for his own use and must rank as one of the finest available for sale anywhere today.
The 356 Speedster was originally introduced by Porsche in 1954 after Max Hoffman, their celebrated US importer, encouraged them to produce a cheaper model to compete with the prevalent British sports cars. The Speedster’s design was much simplified which not only reduced cost but also made it lighter and more dynamic to drive.
The looks are now widely regarded as a 20th Century design classic.
