Sold for $205,700 at 2012 RM Auctions - Monterey.
Sold for $335,000 at 2020 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island Auction.
Porsche's 356 Speedster was built as a more affordable price than the more luxurious 356 Cabriolet, at the insistence of Max Hoffman, Porsche's U.S. importer. The Speedster was priced at $2,995 and offered a small top, side curtains, and lightweight bucket seats. It had a rakish, cut-down windshield which gave the impression of speed and adventure, even while sitting at rest. Speedster production began in 1955 and peaked at 1,416 units for 1957, with just 2,922 examples built in total.

This 1600cc-powered Porsche 356 Speedster was built on May 9th of 1957 with sealed-beam headlamps, and finished in red with the 356 Coupe-type seats trimmed in black leatherette. The current owner acquired the car in the late 1990s. Just prior to the acquisition, the car had been professionally restored.

In 2012, this car was offered for sale at RM Auction's Monterey, CA sale. It was estimated to sell for $190,000 - $240,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $205,700, inclusive of buyer's premium.
