Chassis #: 550-0031
Inspired by the Porsche 356 created by Dr. Ferry Porsche, Porsche decided to build a car designed specifically for racing. The Porsche 550 Spyder was introduced at the 1953 Paris Auto Show and 78 cars were produced in open and closed configuration. The first three prototypes were coupes with a removable hardtop. The first Porsche 550 Spyder appeared at the Nurburgring in May 1953 winning its first race. Porsche 550 Spyders started in over 370 races around the European and US circuits between 1953 and as late as 1965 winning 95 races outright as well as 75 class wins.

This car was originally delivered to Swiss racer Walter Riggenberg in March of 1955 and with co-driver Richard von Frankenberg they set several new international records at Montlhery in France. The car also raced at Le Mans and AVUS in the same year. The car was later raced by Michael May where, with an adjustable aerodynamic rear wing, it earned the nickname 'the first winged Porsche.'
