I have seen this one before and it looks very good.
I believe it´s a carbon fibre composite monocoque shell with a 3,4 litre engine.

I am sure someone could make something similar using a VW Beetle chassis as a base.

Vintech 550. Carbon chassis and body with a custom 3litre flat 4 aluminium block engine.

It was a prototype to launch a design business so they don’t actually produce it which is a shame. Given the spec it would have to cost well over £100,000 even if you could buy one.

I've seen some of Adam's work and it looks excellent!

The company is called Starkespeedster un USA. they are planning on building 356 Speedster replicas using Boxters as a base. Prices range from 59k to 149k $. I think a little expensive. The finished cars will be named the Starke 357 Revolution Speedster.

Take a look at this episode of Jay Leno's garage. It's for sale but I guess it's a bit pricey ...

Looks nicely done. A modern interpretation. For me the back end looks quite bland but the front looks good, the windscreen even suits it.

It's about 1/3 larger all around than a 356 Speedster.

Although it's a good looking car from a retro perspective ..it's a tad on the large side for me to accurately depict a 356 ...

Exactly, bit more than a "tad" larger.

And, at the price, one could build around four VW pan based speedsters!
