In September of 1954 Porsche introduced the 356 Speedster to the American marketplace. The light weight, bare to the bones example of the 356 line of automobiles soon became an American racer-boy icon, often winning SCCA races in stock trim. Fifty-eight years later, our introduction of the Kitman 356 Speedster faithfully reproduces Dr. Porsche’s original design while introducing innovation and state of the art engineering to the reproduction marketplace.  

The KitMan 356a speedster is available on either a VW pan-based platform, or on our custom tube chassis. The body comes in black gel coat and includes two doors, hood, deck lid, under dash closeout, front and rear bumpers, and hinges for the doors, hood and deck lid (included but not mounted) Available in LHD and RHD. All components are available as a kit or can be sold individually. The total weight of the KitMan Speedster is 290 lbs.

Our 356a Speedster kits are set up to utilize a stock VW ball joint beam in the front and a stock VW IRS transaxle in the rear. Air-cooled VW motors are the standard, but the 2.2L Subaru motor is also a great option on these lightweight cars. All glass, trim, suspension, etc. are available over the counter. We do not source parts, but we do offer a comprehensive parts list with part numbers and vendors making it easy for you to source your parts at your leisure. 

NOTE: KitMan Motors provides a parts lists for customers to reference and fulfill at their own pace, but we DO NOT KEEP AN INVENTORY OF PARTS NOR DO WE SOURCE PARTS FOR OUR KITS OR ANY OTHER MANUFACTURERS KITS. We can provide a starting point with a framework of part numbers, vendors, etc, but these cars are based on being built to the individual customers specifications for their intended use of the vehicle. We do not monitor pricing with all of these vendors due to international supply chain issues and the difficulty to update regularly and accurately.
