1957 PORSCHE SPEEDSTER CARRERA GT REPRODUCTION
'TIMELESS RACED INSPIRED TRIBUTE'
You are looking at one of the most sorted out, well designed and attention-grabbing German Tribute cars ever
fabricated. This gorgeous sports car began it's life as a "FiberFab Californian" and was recently completed
restored and improved. A fresh (5000 miles) 1835 with single TURBO motor, custom exhaust and oval tip propel this
charming little beast (190 HP estimated). A new DAN MILLER custom interior ($10K to reproduce) with custom luggage
front and rear duffle, race peddles, original style wood wheel, sound deadening, piped loop carpet, fully
upholstered trunk & lid, 914 gauges, functional roll bar with meticulous hand stitched seams and extreme attention
to every detail make it an up-close stunner and a show winner.
Package trays, storage pockets, drink pockets, custom seats with ultra comfortable bottom webbing, top of the line
faux-leather (more costly than real leather with 10x the durability and moisture resistance) , 4x 12volt accessory
plugs and a crystal clear, LOUD & MASSIVE dual amp, 1000 watt sound system complete with blue tooth, concealed 6
speakers (2x 6x9"s with coved upholstered scoops to keep with retro vibe + 2x full spectrum 6"s + 10" under
dash/down firing subwoofers) complete the practicality and drivability checklist!
All Halogen and LED lighting (bright as you'd want!), vintage amber fog lights, front buckles, stone guards, custom
3m vinyl stripping, matching satin olive green/gold wheels, new tires (205/50 front 225/50 rear), racing style
front stabilizer/sway bar, new brakes (front disc, rear drum)
I have had many of these "replicas"...this is unique among the pack. Recently we took a 1200 mile trip to
Rennsport Reunion 2015, Laguna Seca Raceway for the largest Porsche meet possibly in the world; the president of
the Vintage Speedster Owners' club put our car in the very front and said ...QUOTE:
"This is what a true enthusiast's reproduction should look and sound like....not everyone can afford a real
speedster nor would they drive it on the street...you hit the nail on the head, man!!"
Did I mention that hard on the throttle it sounds like an enraged banshee, yet soft on the peddle and she purrs
like a kitten...literally.
You can buy some cookie cutter version of this car, a cheaper replica for $25K BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE BADDEST
SPEEDSTER TRIBUTE EVER BUILT!!!
A perfect fusion of a classic 356 tourer, Le Mans race car, classic muscle car, James Dean era icon and daily

With the Formula One season - and indeed his entire F1 career - now behind him, Mark Webber took advantage of his early release from Red Bull Racing to try out the new LMP1 which Porsche is developing, undertaking the final test session of 2013 before Porsche throws it head first into the FIA World Endurance Championship next April. The session - which followed previous tests at Magny-Cours, Monza, Paul Ricard and the Eurospeedway at Lausitz - was held at the Algarve circuit in Portimão, Portgual, in collaboration with Michelin, which is developing the tires for the car. But that's hardly the news here.
No, the news is the first confirmation we've seen on the type of powertrain Porsche has developed for its new Le Mans prototype: a gasoline-burning four-cylinder engine with direct injection and two energy recovery systems. This contrasts sharply with the V6 turbodiesel and single electric motor used by Audi in the R18 e-tron Quattro (or at least the outgoing version) or the naturally-aspirated V8 and single electric motor found in the Toyota TS030. Flexibility in the rules set down by the FIA and ACO give the manufacturers that kind of latitude, prompting F1 teams like Ferrari and Renault to consider developing their new engines for Le Mans prototypes as well.
At this point Porsche isn't saying how large its four-cylinder engine is or how much power it will produce. But it'll be interesting, to say the least, to see how it fares against the Audi and Toyota in next year's championship and at Le Mans when it'll be piloted by Webber, former Lola LMP1 driver Neel Jani and Audi's own 2011 Le Mans-winning pair of Romain Dumas and Timo Bernhard.
Porsche had a lot to crow about at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week. Not only did it debut the new 50 Years edition and Turbo versions of the 911 and the new hybrid and diesel versions of the Panamera, but while unveiling the final production version of the new 918 Spyder, it revealed the record lap it set around the Nürburgring.
The 918 Spyder's 6:57 lap time makes it the fastest street-legal production car ever to lap the Nordschleife and the first to break the seven-minute barrier. But the driver who clocked the time thinks it can go even faster.
That driver was Marc Lieb, who has won the Nürburgring 24-hour race four times, making him something of an expert on the subject. In speaking with Australia's Drive TV, Lieb suggested that they could get even more out of the car, as you can hear for yourself in the video below.
Have you ever gone to the store, only to become irked after learning that the new [*insert widget here*] that you bought just last week has gone through a price drop? If you're particularly thrifty, even if it's only a couple of bucks, you probably brought in your receipt to see if the store would issue you a credit for the difference. Now, imagine that the widget in question isn't a minor purchase, it's a Porsche - and the price drop isn't just a few bucks - it's thousands.
That's the unhappy scenario that recently faced a number of Australian luxury car buyers and the uncomfortable conversation awaiting the German automaker. According to GoAuto, Porsche Australia recently whacked up to $36,000 off the price of its models in order to jumpstart sales Down Under - the Panamera range itself saw cuts between $5,500 and more than $36,000. The aggressive price cut was a strategy designed to drive sales of more than 3,000 cars locally, a yearly goal originally set for 2018, but now hoped for as early as 2016.
Australia is known for its comparatively high car prices, so the dramatic price cuts were undoubtedly welcome news to potential Porsche shoppers. However, around 50 existing customers were understandably agitated by the reductions because they purchased their cars just before the adjustments took effect. Not only did they stand to lose out on the deals, they also had good reason to fear that their new cars' residual values would take a beating.
