A 356 for the collector, for the Porsche enthusiast who would like to own something that nobody else has…
This custom-special is up there with the best. Thinking outside of the box, Hauser wanted to create something quite different, a car for himself; a Roadster-style look, but with an imaginative twist. Joining forces with his friend Daniel Bohman (artist and designer at GM’s specials department) the concept of the Sportolet was born.
There are virtually no reproduction pieces used anywhere on the car. All the trim screws are re-plated originals, and SWF wiper blades were fitted. The gauges have been rebuilt by Palo Alto Speedometer.
The louvres on the cowl feed a duct which supplies the fan. The deck lid covers a sizeable storage area, and allows easy access to the 912 engine, which was rebuilt by Autothority. The hood handle is an un-restored original item, as are the door handles.
