The Porsche 550 Spyder was inspired by the original Porsche 356. From 1951, Porsche 356 prototypes were built and
raced by Walter Glockler. His successes led to Porsche’s decision to build the first Porsche specifically
developed for racing - the 550.
The engine was based on the VW Beetle flat-4. It had shaft-driven, twin overhead camshafts, a roller-bearing
crankshaft and dual ignition. Displacement was 1498 cc to qualify for the 1.5-liter class. The mid-located engine
was fed by a pair of Solex carbs, it produced 110 bhp at 6200 rpm. With an aluminum, monocoque body maximized for
compactness, aerodynamics and lightness, the car weighed around 1300 lb. All the factory 550 Spyders were silver
in color
