Completed at the Zuffenhausen-based Porsche works in July of 1957, this sporting 356A Speedster was built in the transitional era of the T1 and T2 356A model production. The Speedster was finished from new in the striking and desirable Aquamarineblau (Aquamarine Blue) color. The Porsche was equipped for the US market, and fitted with sealed beam headlights, US-type bumpers and gauges. According to a copy of the car's original factory build record (better known as the Kardex) the new Speedster was exported to the US and delivered through Max Hoffman to its first owner.

The new Porsche 356A Speedster was sold as a 1958 model, and probably not delivered until that year. It is believed to have gone from Hoffman to the Pacific Northwest, where it is said to have been owned by a person in Washington State. The car is said to have remained with the same Washington-state based owner, before being laid up in dry storage, until purchased by the consignor - a Southern California-based Porsche expert and enthusiast - in 2013. What intrigued the consignor about this Speedster, was how original and unharmed the car was. It had been kept in good and dry storage, so therefore had very little rust, and retained the original matching-numbers doors as well as front and rear deck lids. Furthermore, the original matching-numbers engine was in situ, and the F-code ignition key and switch present. The rare and desirable Speedster was indeed the perfect example to bring back to its former glory, and the consignor decided to embark on a comprehensive, nut and bolt restoration.

A PCA Concours and Porsche enthusiast who really demands top quality and authenticity, the consignor would enlist the best Porsche experts to bring the Speedster up to perfect restored condition. The 42-month restoration was completed in February of 2018, and the result is immediately apparent upon close examination of the Porsche today. Original parts were kept and restored instead of replaced where possible and, if a new part was needed, efforts were made to source an original, new-old-stock piece as opposed to the cheaper option of an aftermarket item. The Speedster's original body panels were retained, and the front hood, engine lid, door jamb panels and both doors are all numbered '543' and match the Certificate of Authenticity and Kardex. The majority of the 100-point restoration was performed by 356-expert and PCA Concours Judge Tom Drummond III of Costa Mesa, CA. The original instruments were fully refurbished by Hollywood Speedometer of Hollywood, CA, while chrome and bright work was refinished by professionals as well. The transaxle - numbered closely to the original unit but of the improved T2 type – along with the original matching numbers engine, were rebuilt by renowned Porsche 4-cam specialist, Chuck Young of Costa Mesa, CA. All work was done to the highest standards possible and, per the car's original build records, the car was refinished with Glasurit series 22 paint in its as-delivered from new Aquamarine Blue color and trimmed in a beautiful Oxblood interior with correct Oatmeal-colored carpets. A period correct Hard Top was fully restored and fitted to the car - a very desirable and rare feature on a Speedster costing more than $25,000 in restoration efforts alone - while a black soft top and weather
