The whole world is tired of $350,000 early Porsche Speedsters barn finds selling regularly to people who will never enjoy driving them in joy and anger, just putting them on display for everyone to point and say, “Wow, you have a Speedster”. The cars in the day were a loss leader for Porsche and were meant to be driven hard and put away wet. Guess that is why there are not many left, but regardless, the soul of the car has been lost in the cubic dollars being tossed about to provide the bravado of “I have one”.

For those that love the essence of the cars, we are presenting our second early Porsche Replica from Vintage Speedster, the first being the 550 Spyder we most recently sold. Again, the faithfulness to the original car is outstanding with acceptable upgrades that stay within the mechanical design parameters and are only noticed when driving the car or when viewed on a hoist. The build quality is outstanding and with over 19,000 miles showing since being built in 2005 the quality of the driving experience is untarnished, cosmetically showing beautifully, the interior showing almost no signs of use.

The car was built by Vintage Speedster in the LA area and ordered with some of their more popular options. First was the 1915cc engine with Dual Solex Carbs and custom exhaust. What was interesting was that the stock heater boxes are still installed and plumbed for heat. Most don’t bother and run "J" Tubes to the muffler. It uses a 1970 Beetle Frame with a Ball Joint Front End and added Disk Brakes. The frame is shortened (as thousands were during the Dune Buggy craze) but an earlier Swing Axle 3.88 Rear End was used instead of the IRS of the 1970 model. Cool. There is also the Leather Interior Upgrade, Full Tonneau Cover, Trunk Carpeting, Stereo with CD, Bumper Guards, Nardi Steering Wheel, Horn Grills and Chrome Rear View Mirrors.

Vintage Speedster asks for several months to build their cars along with a Donor VW floor pan. The cost with the extras this car has is just short of $36,000 and they claim to have built over 3,330 cars so far. The car is titled as a 1970 Volkswagen reflecting the VIN# 1102618127, obviously the donor car. Miles showing are 19,489 and the selling price is $25,995.
