Since day one this Spartan little open sports car has had a bad boy image, let alone with high profile owners like James Dean and Clark Gable, but with the new regime of guys like Rod Emory creating the modern day branding “Outlaw”. In recent years, great examples of the iconic Porsche 356 Speedster have grown immensely and the have attained superstar status.

This Speedster was once owned by noted Porsche collector, Vic Skirmants and his wife, Barbara. Vic raced this Speedster in the SCCA circuit as his personal race car. The current engine is a 1963, 356 Super 90 and is rated at 90 horsepower which more than adequately propels this 1,800 pound former racer. The engine and transmission have been rebuilt, in recent years, by Vic Skirmants personally. The car has faithfully been restored from ground up to look and feel original, and is finished with a Porsche red exterior and black interior. The seats have been constructed and trimmed by Fibersteel, Inc. of California. The red piping detail ads a little more flare to the otherwise simple cockpit. Another nice touch is the optional Super hubcaps with Porsche crests. Here is a rare opportunity to acquire a solid example of Porsche’s most desirable early sports cars, and old Speedsters in this restored condition with previous racing history are rarely found. This one is ready to find a new home.
