Having undergone a comprehensive restoration by the marque specialists at Vintage Auto Collectibles in New Jersey, this particular Speedster remains in superb condition. As with all other restorations conducted by the company, this car was chosen for its mechanical specifications and lack of body damage and corrosion. The body, including the floors, was completely stripped to bare metal for inspection and repair. It was then sealed and meticulously finished in the original Porsche white (code 30510). As for the interior, the upholstery is red leatherette, as per the original Porsche specification, and the gauges were restored by North Hollywood Speedometer. New carpeting and mats were also fitted as were European headlamps and new chrome trim.

All mechanical components were examined and expertly rebuilt or replaced with new parts. In this particular car, the engine was rebuilt to factory specifications, the transmission was rebuilt using new seals and bearings and the suspension and braking systems were completely refurbished. In the end, the product of the restoration is factory correct in all respects and accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

The Speedster's appeal lies not only in its good looks and sheer driving pleasure, but also in its fantastic heritage. Born of the demands of an American market and produced to meet the performance needs of a new generation, each surviving Speedster remains highly collectible. This particular car is an outstanding example that benefits from a comprehensive, professional restoration.
