Story and History

The last Roaster made by coach builder Glaser-Heuer and the only one made of steel rather than aluminium. With Heuer build number K9/1, this Roadster featured an integrated windshield frame which accentuated the elegant body lines designed by Erwin Komenda.

K9/1 is considered “the bridge” in concept to the later 356 Speedster.

For more detailed information, read the definitive book: “Porsche SPeedster TYP 540 Quintessential Sports Car.” A must read for any self professed collector or Porschephile.
