Manufacturers of the Porsche Speedster replica include Special Edition, Inc., Rock West Racing, Vintage Speedsters, and JPS Motorsports. Martin and Walker Limited, which is based in the United Kingdom, also manufactures these speedsters. The company exports worldwide and can supply left- or right-hand drive vehicles.
Porsche Speedster replicas can be bought as turnkey models customized to the buyers’ specifications, or as kits for self-assembly. These speedsters have a Volkswagen chassis with a custom built body. Porsche introduced the 356 Speedster in the United States in September of 1954, and it quickly became an icon of the racing community, winning many Sports Car Club of America races in its stock trim.
