1958 Porsche 356 A Speedster

The Porsche 356 Speedster is perhaps one of the most recognizable and sought-after European classic cars in the market today. First debuted in 1954 after the sole U.S. importer of Porsches, Max Hoffman, advised the company that a lower-cost, somewhat Spartan open-top version of the classic 356 would sell well in the American market. Hoffman was right; the Porsche 356 Speedster would become an icon of style and design, particularly in the Southern California market. Offering a low, removable windshield, bucket seats, and a minimal folding top, the Speedster was an instant hit. Produced from 1954 to 1958, the 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster, being the last of the run, is one of the more sought-after model-years. It is estimated that only 937 of the 356A Speedsters were produced during this time, and it is unclear how many remain in existence today. If you’re the owner of a 356A Speedster – no matter what the condition – the Alex Manos team would like to speak with you.


1958 Porsche 356A Speedster Seller’s Guide

When it comes time to sell your 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster, start by giving your classic a full look-over. Start by walking around the car, slowly checking all the lines for similar spacing. Move to under the front panels and around the headlights and wings, followed by the door bottoms and rear wing panels. Look for signs of wear, rust or corrosion. Educated buyers will be looking for items like rust, bumper damage, and originality, as parts for the 356A Speedster can be quite difficult and costly to find. Whether you have a Speedster in need of complete restoration or a quality example that has been meticulously restored from top to bottom, there is a market for your classic in today’s market. Let the team at Alex Manos be your guide to finding it a new home.
