DESCRIPTION
AMAZING.
That is a word that keeps coming out of folk’s mouths when they see this incredible looking Porsche Speedster Replica for the first time. Why? Because it is just that. Every time I drive it, I have people asking me what it is and telling me how amazing it is.
The first thing that grabs you is the overall look of the car. Vintage Speedster has painstakingly gone over every detail to make sure that only the keenest collectors eye could spot the minor variances between this and a real one.
The lines are clean and straight, fit and finish incredible, gaps and trim align perfectly, and all of the little details add up to perfection.
This particular car was built directly by Vintage Speedster, and was actually a manufacturer demonstrator to show just how great a build they can do! After 290 miles of service, it was shipped to the dealership showroom for delivery to its new owner.
R3601 Signal Red was chosen for the color scheme, and it really sets this car apart from the sea of silver and green lesser quality clones running amok across the U.S.
The finish is glossy, slick, and wet looking, and has been lovingly hand waxed and cleaned since new.
There are less than a handful of truly minor finish blemishes on the car, and most sellers would call it perfect.
There are NO cracks in the fiberglass, NO rips, NO dents, NO dings… just a small hairline scuff and miniscule stone chip from normal driving on the lower front bumper.
The optional REUTTER Badging set was installed on the car, and they lend it a very unique, period correct, and special look.
Aluminum bright work and trim is in very good condition, and the chrome on the car is in great condition with just some light patina in spots from normal wear.
The NARDI wheel lends an aura of authenticity to the car, as do the deluxe gauge package and dash trim.
COCO mats protect the fully carpeted flooring so it shows like new, and the kick panels and rear panels all still show like new as well.
Leather door panels with twist clasp storage pockets are in exceptional condition, as are the Speedster Sport seats with matching shift and E-Brake boots. The upholstery looks FANTASTIC, and is rip, tear, stain, and seam pull free. It has no stains and only the gorgeous patina fine grade leather gets over time.
Seat belts are fully functional Vintage Racing lap units, and have the requisite racing clasps.
The convertible top is in perfect condition, with no stains, damage, tears, rips, or seam pulls. It shows like new, and rear window is in exceptional condition as well. The roll for it behind the seats is fully functional and works as it should.
A pouch in the front bonnet holds the two side screens for the top, and they are in exceptional condition and have no damage or issues.
Under the front bonnet, the whole hood area has been treated to carpeting for that finished look. This was an optional upgrade that really sets the car apart.
The upgraded an optional 1915cc motor was BRAND NEW when it was built and assembled for this car. With just over 2,400 miles on it, it is still in excellent condition, and runs and performs like new.
1915cc may not sound like a lot, but when you combine with the low seating height, open roof, and razor-like handling of this car, it feels like a whole lot more!
The car starts, runs, idles, and performs like it was a brand new build, and it has been loving maintained since new with a break-in and 2,000 mile complete fluid service performed on it since new.
Handling is SPOT ON, and it goes where you tell it to in really short order! This is probably one of the best handling vehicles I have been in for a long time, and it is sure to put a smile on your face the first time you muscle through the twisties with a little trailing throttle oversteer for good measure.
The car does nothing out of the ordinary, and it feels wonderfully stable at highway speeds thanks to the optional upgrade to the 3.88 FREEWAY FLYER transmission.
Clutch actuation is perfect, and the car shifts and STAYS in gear with little effort and no drama.
Emergency brake works as it should, and holds the car without incident.
Glass windshield is clean and scratch free, and thanks to a treatment of RAIN-X, the water just blows off. If you need them, the fully functional windshield wipers are on hand, but with the curve of the screen, you really never use them.
All of the lights, horn, blinkers, and marker lamps work the way they should.
This is one of the finest examples of a 356A Speedster Replica I have seen, and I have been lucky enough to have owned Beck, Specialty, and others in my time.
The car has the authentic look, style, elegance, and panache that will make you the hit of the Country Club parking lot, while still letting you call all the shots while briskly dominating the back country roads in your neck of the woods.
In the area? Come see it. I am willing to bet that the first person who comes here to see the car in person will buy it.
The car is titled in FLORIDA as a 1970 Volkswagen, which was the donor car for this ground-up build.
MILEAGE IS ORIGINAL AND ACTUAL AND SHOWS AS SUCH ON THE TITLE FOR THE CAR.
The title is in my name. I am the owner
It is ready for transfer to the next owner, and is eligible for export sale as well.
If you are seriously interested in the car, and require more information, feel free to call me at (813)944-7030.

I strongly encourage a personal showing of the vehicle, or an inspection by a 3rd party, as that will only serve to help me sell the car quickly. If you see the car in person, you will buy it. That simple.
This car was safety checked by a technician, and as of the date of this listing:
-HEADLIGHTS WORK
-TAIL LIGHTS WORK
-RUNNING LIGHTS WORK
-BRAKE LIGHTS WORK
I have NOTHING to hide, and welcome personal inspections
