1955 Porsche 356A Speedster

The Porsche 356A Speedster is one of the most sought after Porsches ever built. Much of its desire is from the chopped look that the smaller windshield and rudimentary top give the car. Owners of this particular car first replaced the original engine with a 1600cc and Super 90 Heads, which is common practice to bust its power. It has recently been rebuilt with a 1750cc big bore kit, to extract even more performance.

Even with the extra power in the trunk (remember, Porsche engines are located in the rear), this car's matching white wheels and body give it a "cute" look. Its red interior looks just as nice as the rest of the car. If the cute bunny rabbit look isn't wanted, put the top up and add the side curtains and this car turns into a pretty wild automobile. It's currently being offered at Fantasy Junction for just under $150,000.
