Porsche 356 Carrera Zagato Speedster Sanction Lost

The Porsche 356 Carrera Zagato Speedster was ordered by Ferdinand Porsche for French driver Claude Storez and built in Milan in 1957 as a one-off. After four wins and some other good placements, in 1959 the car was destroyed in a racing accident. With the third project by Atelier Classic, commissioned by the American collector Herb Wetanson, Zagato, applying the photometric process to the few images that were left of the car, returned to history the functional shape of this felicitous co-branding with Porsche. Dedicated to the 60th anniversary from the founding of the Stuttgart based manufacturer, it was produced in a limited series of nine units.
