Step Back in Time: Porsche 356 Speedsters

by on January 15, 2013

Doing the school run today, my ten year old asked “where would you go if you could travel back in time?”

356 factory line up

For me, the answer is obvious. 356 Speedsters awaiting delivery – how could any man resist a brand new Speedster, even before they were worth what they are nowadays?

I was born at the end of the 1960s. I’m glad I arrived when I did, but to be amidst great Porsche history being made would be my choice. What about you? Targa Florio, Le Mans, a certain motor show, a certain film star? :D

Paul Newman in “Moving Target” (in UK and Europe – “Harper” in US) drove a 356 along a dusty mountain road, IIRC – it was along time ago, but the image remains. A few years later in about 1971 or 72 I was offered a convertible 356 for £75. I was earning £13 p.w. at the time. I didn’t buy it.

AAAGH! That’s what I’m talking about right there!
