Biarritz Sports And Classic Cars is delighted to present this stunning Porsche 356 Speedster replica made by PGO.
The work of Erwin Komenda is unanimously recognized as cult. The 356 Speedster was originally intended for the American market́.
Importer Max Hoffman had clearly seen the potential that a 'Speedster' version, sportier than the European 356s, would have on the Californian coast.
Among Hoffman's customers was a certain Steve McQueen, who fell under the spell of the Speedster's sleek, elegant lines.
The model we're offering is a replica of this icon, manufactured by PGO, a French SME, in the early 2000s.
More plush and less rustic than the last PGO we sold recently, this one is strictly in line with the original catalog.
In fact, we have the original order form for this PGO, the period advertisement, the invoice for the engine sold by VGE France, the copy of the original Beetle's registration document and the various homologation documents.
The options chosen for this Speedster were :
-Executive" pack including : Deco pack, Alpaca soft top, matching tonneau cover, extended leather interior, five counter instrumentation and sports chassis.
The vehicle will be serviced before delivery, with the engine dismantled to change the hydraulic pushrods.
Powered by a 1600 engine developing around 50 bhp, this is a true summer car. Its elegant discretion makes it the perfect cabriolet for two.
