American WWII veterans returned home with a voracious appetite for the wonderful sports cars they had seen while fighting in Europe, and Austria-born Max Hoffman was more than happy to fulfill their dreams from his Manhattan-based European import showroom. As the sole US Porsche importer, Mr. Hoffman was responsible for nearly 50% of Porsche sales worldwide by 1954. Utilizing his significant influence, Mr. Hoffman convinced Ferry Porsche that a stripped-down, lightweight open cockpit Porsche 356 priced below $3,000 would be a runaway hit with stateside weekend racers. Porsche responded with the Speedster, and more than 4,900 were built over the next four years. Porsche constructed just 585 Speedsters for 1958, the car’s last year of production. Regarded as the most sought-after Speedster, the T2 incorporated all of the production improvements made over the years. This 1958 Speedster is presented in highly coveted Meissen Blue with navy top and interior and finished with oatmeal square weave carpeting. The striking color combination is complemented by polished side trim, chrome wheels, and bumper over-riders. The engine was upgraded to a 912 powerplant, which was meticulously dressed to present a stock appearance while providing a considerable increase in power and driving enjoyment. Combining a 102 hp drivetrain and stunning good looks, this iconic open-air Porsche continues to be the car dreams are made of.
