1957 Porsche 356A Speedster “Issabelle”
Story and History
For good reason Speedster is often synonymous with most iconic Porsche. From time to time in this industry you encounter a Porsche that transcends the brand, and exemplifies the passion we all share around the cars building friendships and the memories we create.
Yes, this T1 Reutter Speedster is spectacular from its fit and finish and mechanically as good as you will drive. However, one can never understand it’s value and relevance until digging into the provenance of 83427 and understanding Issabelle’s special history.
A special thank you to Bill Shaprow and Terry Hall as custodians of 83427 respectively, and to Sean Cridland who masterfully depicts Issabelle’s story in July 2016 Porsche Panorama magazine volume 712.
