    It's a limited production Porsche, they have the right to make their limiteds look however they dern well please. Once you get your own exotic car company, make a name for it, and start making limiteds, I'll leave you alone about how they look. Comprende? Hasta lasanga.<!-- Signature -->

    To my knowlege, this is the model that James Dean died in. That Porsche 550 spyder was supposedly haunted and there are people that noticed that all the parts from James's wreck killed their eventual owners. The engine that was salvaged was used in a car that crashed and killed it's driver afterwards. Not that i believe in any corrolation, but it's a fun topic to research.<!-- Signature -->

    This is one of my favorite cars all time, it may look weird for your likings peroen. But this car rules and kickes a lot of ass! It's incredibly fast for a 1957 car and it has supurb handling. If i can get my hands on a reall spyder i would die happily.. In it or not..

    Ps look at my avatar for the james dean thing

    I think this car is beautiful. Look at all the lovely curves. And it looks so low-slung, especially for a 50's car.

    I think that the 550 is an INCREDIBLY awesome car. There is a private "dealership" in my town that specializes in porsches. The guy who owns it was the first person to bring porsches to the east coast. His name is Weldon Scrogham, and he own what is called "G&W Motorwerks" to my knowledge they have 2 550's and a 904. I've by there a couple of times. Here is a link to their website (note: they don't have all of their cars listed on it, he's not selling the 550's) And here is a picture of one of his 550, i can post a bunch of it if you'd like. http://www.gandw.com/

  19. Re: Looks a bit weird to me...

    So I think we all agree now that this piece of art is not weird!
    For all the unbeleavers: on a twisty uphill road it beats every supercar from the fifties and sixties. I once saw it on TV in a report of the Mille Miglia some years ago and the reporter in a Bentley Continental Turbo tried to follow one... No way!!! The Bentley could only eat dust!
    OK the Bentley is not realy a sportscar, but would have the Spyder for lunch if you compare engine-power, top speed and so forth...
    I think the Spyder is one of the best cars of all times!
