PostHeaderIcon Porsche Classic Will Finally Lo-Jack Your Car; Give You the Ability to Monitor it 24\7

Porsche 924

We all know that protecting your vehicle is of paramount importance. Especially if your car is a decades-old Porsche that you’ve acquired after years of hard work and dedication. Now, owning one of these rolling masterpieces has become a little less stressful with the launch of the Porsche Classic Vehicle Tracking system that allows owners to track their cars and be notified if the batter has been disconnected or if the car has left a certain area.

Porsche is working tirelessly to please the customers that are lining up to buy the new 992-generation Porsche 911. But that’s not the entire business Porsche’s in. The company from Stuttgart also caters towards the owners of vintage Porsche models and beyond parts and expert servicing, Porsche now offers a smartphone app that will allow you, the owner of such a car, to be on top of where your car is at all times.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 550a Spyder

The Porsche 550 is a true icon of Porsche history. Known as both a race car and a sports car, the 550 was the kind of machine you could drive to the track, take the win, then drive back home. The famous British-American racing driver Ken Miles called it the “greatest long-distance racer in the world,” and despite its low power figures, this plucky little two-door could take down cars with far more power and straight-line speed. Eventually evolving into the even-quicker 550a, the 550 is now widely recognized as one of the more desirable collectible Porsches in the world.

The Porsche 550 Spyder is about as classic and iconic as it gets, even for the storied Porsche brand. The lightweight roadster came from inspiration of the Porsche 356, but minus the hard roof. Porsche needed a race car to compete in the roadster class, and that’s just what the 550 Spyder did. In fact, the third 550 prototype and first 550 to race won its first event at the famed Nürburgring Eifel Race in 1953. Following that victory, the 550 went on to claim 95 victories and 75 class wins over a total of 370 races.

Winning wasn’t the only thing the 550 Spyder was known for. It was his newfound love of racing that spurred actor James Dean to purchase an example. Sadly, the actor and his still-new 550 were both fatally injured when a car pulled out in front of Dean as he drove down a California highway.

Nevertheless, the 550 Spyder enjoyed a storied career, with 90 examples being built. Of those 90 cars, 43 of them were built as non-race, “customer cars.” Both Dean’s and the blue example seen here are within that allotment. If fact, the chassis numbers are only separated by five digits, with Dean’s car wearing plate number 550-055 while the other wears plate number 550-060.

Speaking of that blue example, it has recently come up for sale through the Gooding & Company auction company. It carries a storied history and ownership by come famous people, including none other than avid Porsche collector, Jerry Seinfeld. So let’s take a look at this rare example down below.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 550 Spyder Replica Spotted in Brazil

Porsche 550 Spyder Replica-0

The real Porsche 550 Spyder models – a car most famous for killing James Dean – are to be found in private European collections, boasting astronomical price tag. But there is a Brazilian firm called Chamonix who can build you a pretty decent replica of ‘Little Bastard’ as you can see here in these pictures.

What we like best about Chamonix Porsche 550 Spyder replica is that it is not trying to fool anybody that it isn’t a real thing. The car has way too many custom touches to even be mistaken for a restomod – not that anybody would restomod a classic gem like the 550. It’s an hones thing and that’s why we thing it’s cool. This car gives you all the great looks of a 1950’s classic, but with modern underpinnings.

Speaking of underpinnings, since Porsche 550 Spyder replica is basically a coachbuilt job, the customer can opt for whatever powertrain he or she fancies as long as it fits inside this tiny machine. But the default motor Chamonix offers for this car is a 1.8 liter VW unit with 125 horsepower, which should be enough for featherweight sports car.

You get a decent amount of extra garnish too with these cars, such as leather interior, deluxe tonneau cover, chrome roll hoops, and 356-style instruments. The suspension is semi-independent with optional coilovers and you get dis crakes on all four corners.
