1954 PORSCHE 550 SPYDER

The Porsche 550 Spyder was introduced in 1953 at the Paris Motor Show. The 550 became known as Spyder or RS, and gave Porsche its first overall win in a major sports car racing event, the 1956 Targa Florio. The 550 was probably best known as the car of choice for cultural icon James Dean. It was also the car he died in.

1953 - 1957 Porsche 550 Spyder (12)

The Porsche 550 was a sports car produced by Porsche from 1953-1956.

The model Porsche 550 Spyder was introduced at the 1953 Paris Auto Show. The 550 was very low to the ground, in order to be efficient for racing. In fact, former German Formula One racer Hans Herrmann drove it under…

Porsche’s brilliant ‘giant killer’, the 550 Spyder, earned a special place in the annals of international motor racing history. The fledgling automaker’s first product specifically designed for competition, it was inspired by several successful Porsche-powered, privateer-built ‘specials’ in the early 1950s. Quick to succeed, the open-topped, mid-engined Spyders dominated their inaugural outing at the Nürburgring in May 1953 in preparation for Le Mans a month later, where they would claim 1st…
