Behold: the 1957 Porsche 356A Carrera Speedster.

Named after the Carrera Panamericana road race, this would be the progenitor of the 911. 0-100km/h in 11 seconds and a top speed of 172km/h from a 1.5l 110bhp engine. Not bad for a 60 year old.

One of only three right hand drive models built, it’s yours for a frivolous €1.2 million.

A 1957 Porsche 597 Jagdwagen 4×4 – one of 49 civilian versions of the short-lived German Army DKW Munga – an amphibious Jeep/Land Rover alternative of which only 71 were ever made because, at the time, Porsche didn’t have the production capacity to match the army’s demands.

Running, driving and currently up for auction between €200,000 and €230,000.
