356 Speedster (1954)
It all came about when Porsche’s American importer convinced ze Germans there was a market for an open, stripped-out model costing less than $3,000. And so in 1954 the 356 Speedster was born. It had the same body as the Cabriolet model, but a more steeply-raked windscreen and less equipment (less money for less car? Those were the days…).
The ultimate version - the 1957 356 A 1500 GS Carrera GT Speedster - was the first production Porsche to reach over 200km/h, or 124mph.
