Porsche Santa Clarita debuts “Galpinized” 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster for the 2021 Porsche Restoration Challenge
Porsche Santa Clarita, a Galpin Motors dealership, recently completed the restoration and customization of a 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster as part of the 2021 Porsche Restoration Challenge. The dealership acquired the car from its second owner, a California local who had modified the 356 for racing during his 50 years of ownership. The 356, with coachwork by Reutter Karosserie, was originally imported through famed New York importer Max Hoffman. Porsche Santa Clarita modified the body of the 356 with shaved rocker moldings and rear reflectors, a louvered decklid, and filled, smoothed and chromed bumpers. A custom-mixed Blue-Green paint from PPG accents the tailored body, as does a set of 1960 magnesium Halibrand knock-off wheels finished in House of Kolor gold with a matte klear finish. Under the rear decklid lies an upgraded 1600SC flat-four air-cooled pushrod engine with chromed components mated to a 519 transaxle. On the inside, Porsche Santa Clarita opted for red leather with tartan inserts and color-matched Blue-Green trim. When approaching the restoration, Galpin President and COO Beau Boeckmann opted for a full restoration with period-correct modifications, imagining the 356 as if it had been “Galpinized” when new. Porsche Santa Clarita technician Nicolas Briseno carried out the mechanical restoration while Dave Shuten of Galpin Speed Shop completed the body and paint modifications. Galpin Auto Sports – G.A.S. assisted with the remaining restoration work.
The Q3 45 TFSI e and the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e mark the first step into the world of electrified Q models from Audi. Their technology package is very similar to the A3 45 TFSI e3: The 1.4 TFSI cooperates with a permanently excited synchronous machine (PSM) that outputs 85 kW of power and 330 Nm (243.4 lb-ft) of torque. Together, the two motors generate 180 kW (245 PS) of system output and 400 Nm (295.02 lb-ft) of system torque. Both the Q3 45 TFSI e and the Sportback take 7.6 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph), and both models reach a top speed of 210 km/h (130.5 mph). In the NEDC cycle, the Q3 45 TFSI e consumes 1.7 to 1.4 liters of fuel per 100 km. The Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e records the same values of 1.7 to 1.4 liters of fuel per 100 km. Both compact SUVs can cover up to 61 km (37.9 mi) in the NEDC powered purely by electricity. In the WLTP, the distance is 51 km (31.7 mi) for the Q3 45 TFSI e and 50 km (31.07 mi) for the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e.
