Last Updated On: 27/05/2020

The Chesil Speedster is a highly regarded and well established replica of the Porsche 365 Speedster, the open top version of this popular Porsche from the 1950s. Chesil's own take closely resembles the 1957 model year. Two models are are offered: the conventionally powered Chesil Classic 356 Speedster and the recently introduced fully-electric Chesil E Speedster.

As well as looking, sounding and driving the same as the original car would have,  Chesil’s factory built Speedsters incorporate several improvements which make ownership an even more attractive proposition. Upgrades in safety and performance can be found in the engine, electrical and braking systems, whilst a carefully considered improvement in interior comfort and accessory level creates a more practical car, without compromising its classic status.

The Chesil’s GRP body construction ensures that corrosion will never be a problem, and owners of the factory-built Speedsters can feel well protected within its integral sub-chassis, giving incredible rigidity and safety.

The Chesil Classic 356 Speedster utilises all VW Beetle running gear and the traditional flat 4 air-cooled Beetle 1600cc engine and gear box comes as standard. 1800cc and 2000cc engines are available as one of the many upgrades and options for a bespoke built Classic Speedster. 

The Chesil E Speedster is the first fully-electric car available with the option for home assembly. It is equipped with a Hyper 9 Electric motor (image 8), Tesla batteries and has a power output equivalent to 120bhp, with a 180–200 mile range.  

As with all factory-built Chesil Speedsters, customers have a full range of options and accessories at their disposal, including luggage rack, bumper overiders, tonneau and hood covers and a hard top.
