1954 Porsche Pre-A Speedster For Sale
Extremely Rare
  The 1954 Pre-A Porsche Speedster is a rare bird.   There were only 200 examples built in 1954 before the 356A started production.  Gullwing Motorcars has this red Pre-A speedster for sale.  It has nice patina and is said to be a good daily driver.  The downside is that the engine is not matching numbers which would explain the discounted price.   Seller states it  currently has 356B engine installed and runs strong.   I think due to its rarity, buyer will still come running  despite the incorrect engine.   At the Bonhams Zoute Sale in October of 2016,  a beautiful white 4 owner 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Speedster sold for a staggering $617,438 US Dollars. This car is  matching numbers and held multiple Concours class wins.   Its is also eligible for the Mille Miglia.     The red speedster may not be Concours correct but its a highly desireable car that will continue to appreicate in the years to come.  I dont think it will take long before it finds a new home.

Porsche 356C Carrera 2 Wheel

Location: Gloversville, New York

Price: $1,000 US Dollars

You dont find many spare wheels like this anymore.  All the Porsche enthusiasts have been hoarding this stuff for years.   The Porsche Carrera 2 used a special 4 cam performance engine.   It seems the Porsche Factory created special wheels for this model with thicker wheel centers to match.   It even has the correct original parts sticker and stampings that corresponds to the Porsche Factory Service Bulletin.

How to identify a genuine Porsche RS Duck Tail

  porsche-1973-911-rs-white-2 I have never been able to  tell the difference between a real Porsche Duck tail or a replica.  This is what I have found. If I am incorrect in my research, please correct me.  I am genuinely interested to know the difference between a real and a replica. The  Duck Tail  from the 1973 Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic shapes in automotive history.   It is not only  beautiful but functional as well.    The duck tail provided lightness , better engine cooling, and decreases lift especially above 80 MPH and higher.   Ten years ago , I can remember seeing them for sale for $1,200 to $2,000 and thinking the seller was out of his mind.  Who would pay such a high price?   Well in hindsight,  I wish I was that fool.    Today , these Duck Tails can be $5,000 to $10,000 +.  Since the Porsche Company always pushed the limits of technology,  they experimented with fiberglass for aerodynamics and lightness.   The Duck Tails were not made of metal skins, they used fiberglass
