With a design inspired by Porsche’s classic 356 car, the stunning Porsche 550A Spyder had an evolved design for the purpose of racing. Its sleek, beautiful design made sure it took the stage at racing competitions. The car was also very low to the ground, prompting former German Formula One racer Hans Herrmann to drive it under closed railroad crossing gates during the Mille Miglia in 1954. This gorgeous Porsche is available to you today in the form of this 1:18 scale diecast model by Maisto! It makes a great gift for any admirer of high-end cars and fans of the Porsche brand!
The Porsche legacy began in 1931 with Ferdinand Porsche opening an office for ‘engineering and consultation on engine and vehicle design.’ While no cars were being manufactured at the start of the company, a few years later the company received an official order to construct a German Volkswagen. From then on, the company continued developing and manufacturing vehicles. The name Porsche is today still associated with a standard of excellence that can be seen in cars like the 550A Spyder. Take the opportunity to own a piece of automobile history with your very own Porsche diecast scale model!
