1955 Porsche 550 Spyder

The Porsche 550 Spyder is one of the most iconic cars ever, it first shot to fame as a racing car produced by Porsche in the 1950s, and then later became famous as the car James Dean was driving when he tragically died in an accident. The stunning Porsche 550 Spyder offered here is from 1955 and is one of only 97 examples. It is in pristine condition, and in the late 80s received a ground up, regardless-of-cost restoration with amazing attention to detail. It was used very little since and almost never shown in public. This is a Porsche icon that would enhance any significant collection.
