You will find the original vehicle as a special highlight in our Achter.
And for everyone who doesn’t make it into our exhibition at the moment, feel free to check this page regularly.

Open driving pleasure, combined with distinctive driving dynamics: This is what the Speedster models from Porsche have stood for for more than six decades.
At that time, the US market wanted a cheaper Porsche with reduced equipment that costs less than $ 3,000. In the fall of 1954, Porsche launched a version that was significantly cheaper than the 356 America Roadster, which had the term “Speedster” in the model name for the first time and which quickly caused a sensation in motorsport, too. It combines the sheet steel body of the Cabriolet with a flat windscreen, reduced interior fittings and an emergency roof.
In the USA, the 356 1500 Speedster cost just 2,995 US dollars and is a hit in the sunny coastal states. Hollywood icon and hobby racing driver James Dean also opts for this purist model that is solely dedicated to driving pleasure.
THE PORSCHE SPEEDSTER:
DEDICATED TO DRIVING PLEASURE FOR MORE THAN SIX DECADES!
The model exhibited here is one of the first Speedsters – on October 11, 1954, the assessment for delivery took place in the Reutter factory. The car was restored in the USA and brought back to Europe.
