Thursday 15 January 2008
The Porsche 550 was a sports car produced by Porsche from 1953-1956. Inspired by the Porsche 356 Speedster which was created and raced by Walter Glöckler in 1951, the factory decided to build such a car, being its first designed specifically for use in auto racing. The 550 is very low to the ground, in order to be efficient for racing. In fact, former German Formula One racer Hans Herrmann drove it under closed railroad crossing gates during the 1954 Mille Miglia. Model is manufactured by Hongwell.
