Porsche 550 Coupe (Panamericana)

Only 1 of these 2 coupes currently survive.  These were developed strictly for racing in the early 1950s by Porsche and they competed in the Panamericana races of South America and were also purchased by 2 independent South American race car drivers.

Both coupes were missing for many years, until recently the 1st one built has turned up and is starting to make the rounds of car shows.

Arguably, this is likely the car that has inspired the current Cayman in the Porsche stable, and it definitely makes for great desktop wallpaper!
