Behold: the 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster, or rather, a spectacular one-off restomod of the 911’s immediate predecessor for the 2021 Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge by Californian auto house Galpin Motors.
The car’s original bodywork has been subtly enhanced with a louvred decklid, shaved rocker moldings and rear reflectors, smoothed-out rechromed bumpers front and back and custom gold alloys.
Outside, a deep, six-coat turquoise paintjob. Inside, an entirely period-plausible red leather and tartan interior. Round the back. an upgraded, air-cooled 1600SC flat-four engine.
Easy now. It’s just for looking at.
