America Roadster
The sleek 356 Speedster was introduced in 1954 and was the idea of Porsche importer Max Hoffman who was based in New York. It was a less-expensive or Spartan model with a rudimentary top and side curtains. Ferry Porsche did not like the concept but nearly 5,000 American customers did for it was loved especially by Hollywood movie stars, racers, and Southern Californias who did not have to worry much about rain. Raked windshield that could be readily removed for racing and bucket seats were stock, the option list could add some create comforts, but more to the point is that the Speedster was 'tunable.'
