SPYDER CREATIONS - 550 SPYDER TRIBUTE CAR

About us

Imagine finding this treasure in an old secluded barn...

Goldex

…as defined by Merriam-Webster is “rebirth of the 

soul in a new body.” And that’s the 550 Spyder, an authentic reproduction luxury automobile, reborn from a hand-hammered all aluminum body, custom fabricated steel tube frame and the soul of the original 550.

The original was a true race car. 550kg of hand-hammered aluminum, steel chassis, and a powerful engine that propelled it past most of it's rivals between 1953 and 1956. The 550 Spyder is THE car and shape that put Ferdinand Porsche on the map and it is usually classified as the most iconic and, arguably, the most beautiful sports car ever produced.

There is no fiberglass on this work of art. We have re-created the venerable 550 Spyder with the same soul and essence as the original. Not a meager task. Three and a half years reverse engineering every chassis tube, body line, every discrete part. But, we have succeeded!

We began by scanning 550-0090 (the last one ever built) into a functional 3D model.

We built molds (called bucks) upon which we hand-hammer the panels. We used Chassis

550-0086 as a template to build our chassis. And we fit the car with original transmissions,

engines, suspension parts – every part is either an original (NOS) or made from an original part.

Rebirth of the 550 soul = a 550 reincarnation from Spyder Creations.
