The Small Silver Speedster

3:48:00 PM


The Small Silver Speedster is set in 1957, just as Porsche begins to gain its cult status and domination in sports car racing. It's the story of a father and his young daughter as they fly to New York City to pick up their new 356 A Speedster at Max Hoffman's iconic dealership (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright). While there, they enjoy a chance meeting with racing pioneer Denise McCluggage (whose path they will later cross on the track!). The pair then break in the Speedster with a cross-country drive home to California via Route 66. They prepare the Speedster for the emerging sports car racing scene of the 1950s – as iconic tracks like Riverside, Laguna Seca, and others open across the country. And together, they drive the car to its first race...
