550 COUPE: Nice Toy(SAMBA)

Panhandle Bob posted:

I thought these same pics appeared in a Samba ad some time ago and these were being built and sold by a company in Mexico. Now they are being placed by Artcar, a Porsche restorer here in Florida.

... and yet, they remain... um... what's the word...

hideous?

Is this a replica of a car that actually was produced by Porsche, or is it someone's idea of what might have been?

Answered my own question. Yup, purpose built for racing. Apparently terrible ventilation and claustrophobia generating as reported by the drivers.

From the pics, the replica body isn't an exact match to the original.
