Porsche 550 is 600 years old!

The latest issue of Christophorus states that "And while their design and form have changed over the years, the roots established by the mid-engine four-cylinder 550s nearly sixty decades ago continue to grow with the latest of the breed, the ALMS- and Le Mans-winning RS Spyder prototype."

How many horses pulled the car in the year 1410?

If you're thinking of buying one, be careful! Those were the years when the floor pans were removed to facilitate Flintstones drive, may be tough to convert..

If you find one with original tires, better change those bad boys immediately!
