Description

Motorsports fans revere this car as the first Porsche specifically designed for racing. In 1952, a high-revving, four cylinder engine with four overhead camshafts was developed for use in a skimpy open light-weight body. This new type of Porsche was called the 550 and the body style was the Spyder. During the mid-fifties these cars proved almost invincible in the 1.5-litre class of international sports car racing and established a reputation that has become legendary. 

The Porsche 550 is a Hot Wheels casting which debuted in the collector-aimed (100% Hot Wheels) Porsche 50th Anniversary 4-Car Set . It features an opening rear section which reveals a detailed engine. It was used three times before being discontinued.
