1955 Porsche 550 Spyder Worth Millions Unearthed After 35 Years
The sleek and sexy 550 Speedster enjoyed a successful racing career, achieving class wins in the 24 Hour of Le Mans, as well as the Carrera Panamericana. Powering this little beast is a mid-mounted, 1.5-liter flat-four engine that produced an eye-watering (in a sad way) 108 horsepower and 89 lb-ft of torque when it was new.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. These cars are exceptionally rare, and it’s not uncommon to see restored versions selling for well over $3 million. It is unclear what Green plans to do with this amazing find, but we do hope it sees the track one day.
