Inspired by the Porsche 356 which was created by Ferry Porsche, and some spyder prototypes built and raced by Walter Gl�ckler starting in 1951, the factory decided to build a car designed for use in auto racing. The model Porsche 550 Spyder was introduced at the 1953 Paris Auto Show. The 550 was very low to the ground, in order to be efficient for racing.
The hardened mineral crystal with Diamondfx coating features 18 layers of UV blocking protection and a scratch resistant diamond/sapphire finish.
