Red face Got a new car....well, not really, but I can dream.

Spotted this in the parking lot at my local friendly hardware store.
Thought it was some VW kit car at first,
but then looked closer....

Even if it is some kit, it's pretty dang cool

It has to be a Beck Spyder. The cup holder, funky steering wheel, and extra gauges kinda gives it away. A real Porsche 550 is way north of $1.0M now. I'm thinking one doesn't drive his million dollar Spyder to the hardware store.

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........

The Auto Zone drink holder and garage door openers made it look like a car that gets driven regularly....it was the badge on the front quarter panels that intigued me....and the Nurburgring badge on the engine cover grill. Has an "antique" auto license tag, too.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a pricey car in a parking lot in East Cobb. Routinely see exotic cars on pretty days.

So what does that badge on the front quarter panel say? I'm not familiar with this particular Porsche.

Karosserie Wendle Reutlingen was contracted by Porsche to build 550 bodies for the factory. They often sublet body construction to numerous small Karosserie such as Drautz and Reutter.

I was wrong on my price estimate. Recently a 550 Spyder sold for $3.6M.

Randy, your encyclopaedic knowledge of cars always impresses.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.
