Porsche 550 Spyder
The Porsche 550 Spyder is about as classic and iconic as it gets. Porsche needed a race car to compete in the roadster class so it took its 356 and cut off its roof (that’s how you get the 550 Spyder). After its maiden win in Nurburgring in 1953 the 550 Spyder went on to get 95 victories and 75 class wins over a total of 370 races. It wasn’t just about racing for the 550, with 43 examples built as customer cars (of the 90 cars ever made).
