Looking for all of the fun and cache of a ’57 Porsche 356 Speedster at fraction of the price? Well, then a Beck Speedster is in order!
Completed in ’12, this Beck Speedster incorporates a fiberglass shell mated to an advanced tubular frame. And unless you were a Porschephile, most casual eyes, would never know what they’re drooling over isn’t the “real thing”.
The Beck Speedster shares almost identical proportions with the now stratospherically valuable 1957 Speedster. The car is built in IN. and should more appropriately be classified a very authentic tribute, rather than a kit car or replica. Rather, it should be classified as a fun and usable analog time machine. It’s a car that you can hammer down the dirt roads of anywhere U.S.A. and maintain control without worrying about stone chips. In addition to its very stout tubular frame, the Speedster is also equipped with advanced suspension and large disc brakes—so unlike a 1957 Porsche, it actually handles, accelerates, and stops. Sure a real Speedster is the purest expression of a vintage sports car, but you likely wouldn’t take a very long and lively road trip in a $400,000 rare antique car. The Beck beckons . . .
