This is the Perfect Porsche 550 Spyder for You

The Porsche 550 Spyder; it’s beautiful, quick, and has a dark history for being the car that killed actor James Dean. However, blocking out that dark part, the Porsche 550 Spyder remains one of the coolest examples of 1950’s sports cars ever built. It’s got lightweight engineering, a super low seating position, and absolutely gorgeous good looks. It could be a static work of art and still be considered cool. However, this is no static work of art, it’s definitely a car that’s meant to be driven. That said, because an original Porsche 550 Spyder can go for a staggering $3,685,000, most are kept locked up in barns. With the cars only emerging for events like Pebble Beach and Amelia Island, or when it’s about to be sold to the cars next owner. Not enough of these cars are driven. Thankfully, Seduction Motorsports has a solution for this conundrum: a replica. RELATED: See more of James Dean's Porsche 550 Spyder Now the term “replica” has a very poor connotation to it. When people think of replicas, they tend to think of the kit cars of the late 1980s-early 1990s. However, the cars being built by Seduction Motorsports are anything but the faux-rari’s from the 90s. For Seduction Motorsports, they saw what others were doing in the Porsche 550 Spyder replica industry and said no thanks. Those companies used low cost parts, VW Bug chassis, and all manner of cheap ways around building something that paid homage to the original. It was a nightmare, essentially.

And by doing so, Seduction used parts that would make any racing driver happy. The body is hand-laid fiberglass. The chassis is DOM tubular track-inspection approved steel. The cars have aluminum floors, stainless hardware, RideTech fully adjustable front and rear suspension, disc brakes, Pirelli tires, and a total of five different engine options to complete a turnkey Porsche 550 Spyder. Seduction Motorsports cars are works of art, and since they aren’t the real thing, you 1. don’t have to worry about a massive price tag, and 2. can actually drive them without worrying about crashing a priceless piece of history.

This includes the body, chassis, and pretty much everything else besides the engine. For a “Turnkey” solution, it tacks on an addition $6,000-$16,000 depending on the engine you get. However, it’s the thrill of sitting in one of these Porsche’s that really makes for an experience. Imagine rolling down the coast, the sun and wind in your hair, rolling around PCH like you’re James Dean; I guarantee you’ll never see the term replica in the same light again.
