Porsche 550 Spyder
The 550 was a sports roadster made by Porsche from 1953 to 1957. It is often referred to the as the Spyder, or sometimes the RS. It was designed for racing on the track, but many were sold to buyers who ran them on the streets. There was a tragic consequence to this, which I will explain later on below.

The 550 Spyder is often praised as being the most beautiful car of all time. It's hard to disagree, with its smooth lines and classic profile. It is also one of the most copied cars, both in new designs and literally being copied from the original blueprints and built using available parts. There are some companies that do nothing more than build replicas of the 550 Spyder.

The 550 has a very low stance and stood just a few feet off the road. It could pass under railroad gates, and this feat was done once during an auto race at Mille Miglia.

The Porsche 550 is featured in major films like Sin City and in a variety of racing video games, but this car is most-remember for a tragedy that happened over 50 years ago. The young actor James Dean was driving his 550 in California when a much larger car pulled out in front of him. The crash would take Dean's life.

The 550 is one of the most prized cars in the automotive world. You might see one listed on eBay about once a year, so keep your eyes peeled. There are plenty of 550 models and other stuff on eBay if you're a Porsche-fanatic.
