In 1954, the first Porsche built specifically for racing is this mid-engine Porsche 550 Spyder sports car with an aluminum body.
It swiftly becomes a stand-out by earning a class victory and a third place overall ranking in the Carrera Panamericana against higher capacity competitors.
Another event that boosts this car's fame occurs at the Mille Miglia. Hnas Herrmann and his co-driver just manage to whiz underneath a closing railroad barrier in the low-profile Spyder - the car and its occupants remained unscathed.
