My daily driver is MB 450 GL. The ZR1 is my warm weather fun car.
Tell us what it is. Replica?
Yes, it’s a replica of a 1955 Porsche 550. There we 90 originals made. The photos are from a magazine shoot a few months ago. It weighs 1500 lbs. and has a 250hp turbo engine it.
Very nice. It must scoot along. Do you track it?
I'd imagine there's a very limited amount of organizations that'll allow you track it with it's lack of roll-over protection. The groups I run with have pretty strict rules for convertibles.
BTW, it's a super cool car. I'll love to cruise around in it.
I have not tracked it. It has extremely narrow tires, which is period correct, but not a lot of traction. I use it mostly to drive the canyon roads and PCH, by the ocean.
It is definitely quick and has a ton of torque. It can bark the tires in all 4 gears. The original was 100 hp, so it is definitely over powered.
Michigan has vintage car races for cars like this and the 356 and newer models. Amazes me that collectors risk their prize cars on tracks. Porsche owners are a little bit unique I'm learning.
Pickup is mine and the Yukon is the wifes. Love the Denali's, only thing I've bought since 2003.
Carter, Tell me more about the D18!!
