We're proud to have this Porsche 356 Speedster Widebody re-creation back in the showroom. It was professionally built in California by a maker of high-end Speedsters and Spyders for his personal use, and has been since owned by 3 car lovers in Indianapolis, each enjoying their time with the car! And yes, this is the car that attracts so much attention at Cars and Coffee! This was a professional build, not your typical home built kit car. This car drives...like a dream. It's solid and does not squeak rattle or roll. It handles like it's on rails. When you shut the doors, they close with a solid thunk. The fit and finish is spectatcular. All switches, gauges, and controls are in good working order. The engine heat system keeps the cockpit warm in cold weather.
