JPS Motorsports creates realistic-looking replicas of the 1957 Porsche Speedster (roadster) in standard and flared body styles, but the company also builds a version of an early 1955-’59 Porsche 356A coupe. The turn-key vehicle has a steel-reinforced fiberglass body, new 2.1-liter air-cooled four-cylinder engine with dual carburetors, rebuilt four-speed manual transmission, front and rear disc brakes, retro-styled bucket seats and a wood-rim steering wheel. You can also specify extra-cost items, including air conditioning, leather interior, rear disc brakes, a bigger engine and fancier wheels. The base package starts at $35,000.
