AutoHunter Spotlight: 1957 Porsche 356 replica

Bright red speedster built in 2014 and powered by a 1973 VW engine


Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1957 Porsche 356 replica that was manufactured in 2014 by Vintage Speedsters.

The seller notes this replica was inspired by the 1600 Super Speedster version of the Porsche 356A, the successor to the 356. It’s finished in red with a tan fabric top and features grid-like covers on the headlights, side mirrors on the top of the front fenders and color-coordinated removable side windows.

Inside the cockpit are two horizontally ribbed tan seats with matching door panels and a body-colored dashboard that houses Porsche and Carrera badging and a three-spoke steering wheel.

Interior amenities included air conditioning and a modern radio.

Power comes from a modified 1973 Volkswagen engine with dual carburetors and linked to a 4-speed manual gearbox.

The odometer shows 22,850 miles, of which 6,000 were driven by the current owner over the past 6 years.

This Porsche 356 replica’s auction ends September 21 at 11:20 a.m. PDT.
