Cabriolet
Chassis #: 80879
Engine # 60493
Sold for $137,500 at 2010 Gooding and Company : The Amelia Island Auction.
This early model Speedster was completed in Stuttgart in July of 1955 and is believed to have been destined for the US market. The early history is a mystery until 2004, when the current owner purchased it for the first time from Dr. Robert Wilson of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, shortly after Dr. Wilson had re-painted and restored the car.

It was shown at the 2006 Speedster 50th Anniversary event in Monterey, California. It was purchased from Diane Landers by Robert Trinkle of Alabama, who eventually traded the car to European Collectibles, a classic car dealership specializing in Porsches in Costa Mesa, California. Ms. Landers re-discovered the 356 Speedster in Hemmings, and re-purchased the car. A repaint was commissioned with the work being completed in early 2009. It is now finished in ivory over a tan interior.

In 2010, this Porsche 356 Pre-A was offered for sale at Gooding & Company Auction held in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was estimated to sell for $130,000 - $160,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $137,500, inclusive of buyer's premium.
