Description

✅ WEDDINGS | EVENTS | WEEKEND-GETAWAYS ✅ FILM | PHOTOSHOOTS | PROMOTIONS ✅ Local & Nationwide delivery available Driving a Porsche 356 Speedster always makes for a sense of occasion. This Speedster is definitely not for the camera-shy. It seduced all the stars of its time including legends like James Dean and Steve McQueen, and it attracts a lot of attention wherever it goes. You can't drive a single mile without a wave, thumbs up, a shout, or a question. She is extremely photogenic so be prepared for passing crowds to take pictures whenever you stop. In 1957 the Porsche 356 Speedsters cost less than $3000. These days, it's a different story. They have become incredibly valuable, easily fetching over a quarter-million dollars. This particular Porsche 356 Speedster tribute was hand-built by JPS Motorsports in California. Every detail is identical to an authentic 1957 Speedster, but under the skin, it definitely breaks with tradition. That's because it's powered by a modern water-cooled boxer engine. And while the original 1950’s car only made 70 horsepower or so, this one makes a full 200. In addition, it boasts modern safety features such as disk brakes, modern suspension, seat belts, and even air conditioning. All the fun of a rare classic in the form of a safe and pleasing driver. Make no mistake, the Speedster is a true gentleman’s racer. The sleek shape and the sophisticated deep black exterior, complemented by elegant whiskey tan leather make for a truly timeless design. Furthermore, the cockpit offers comfortable racing-style seats and a thin-rimmed, nostalgic steering wheel - begging you to wrap your hands around it while you navigate from one corner to the next. The feeling of this car on the open road is like no other driving experience. From the sprightly acceleration and the addictive engine growl to the warm wind in your hair, this vintage Porsche will bring your bucket list to another level. No one, and I mean no one, ever comes back without a giant smile on their face. ⚠️ All drivers must know how to drive a manual transmission car proficiently (own one or drive one frequently) as our Speedsters are not suitable for a 'refresher' course. Why you should rent from us: ✅ Guaranteed customer satisfaction ✅ We will NEVER cancel your reservation ✅ Local & Nationwide delivery available ✅ Last-minute bookings available! ✅ We will NEVER be late, or waste your time ✅ ONE-WAY rental options available. ✅ Free post trip WASH & cleaning. 🎥 Videos & Reviews: (paste link in browser) http://bit.ly/Porsche-356-Speedster_Jay_Leno http://bit.ly/Porsche-356-Speedster_Petrolicious http://bit.ly/Porsche-356-Speedster_Mille_Miglia http://bit.ly/Porsche-356_Catherine_Sutton Car includes all the essentials for your trip: 👉 Phone chargers (iPhone, Samsung, LG, etc) 👉 Umbrella, Flashlight & First aid kit 👉 Roadmap, Restaurant Guides & More ⚠️ Limited trunk space, please pack light ⚠️ It's a 2-seater, there are no rear seats -------------------------------------- 🔍 More about us: Click our profile for more info & cars Instagram: @weddingcars.rent Email: [email protected] Cars we offer on Turo: ⭐️ 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Tribute ⭐️ Porsche 911 Carrera S Convertible White ⭐️ Porsche 911 Carrera S Convertible Brown ⭐️ Jaguar XKR Convertible ⭐️ 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Tribute
