The 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster, abbreviated as Porsche 356A, is a classic sports car that appears in the Porsche Expansion for Forza Motorsport 6 and in all subsequent Forza titles including Forza Motorsport 7. It was featured in Forza Horizon 3 as a Barn Find in the May 2017 Forzathon event Doing It For The Fans. In Forza Motorsport 7, it can currently be obtained via the Forzathon event To the Finish Line.

The 356 is the predecessor to the Porsche 911, with the A model being the first model revision of the 356. The Speedster was a lighter and sportier alternative to other 356 open top models, as it was primarily designed to compete against small British roadsters in the North American market.

The Speedster was replaced in 1958 by the Convertible D.[1]

Description

On the outside, the 356A looks very similar to its forefather, the 356, which was created by Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche. The Speedster is of course the convertible version of the 356 with a beautiful (and removable) curved windshield. Underneath the rear hood sits a 1600cc engine that gave the 356A plenty of go for it's lightweight chassis. The suspension was entirely revised with softer springs and stiffer dampeners to optimize the latest tire technology. The end result is a stepwise evolution in classic Porsche fashion. Take the Speedster for a spin and throw it into a corner, or just take it to a picturesque spot and hone your “Forzatography” skills. This is a Porsche for all occasions.

Characteristics

The Speedster is a lightweight sports car with a removable flat windscreen, side curtains, bucket seats and a minimal folding roof top. The result is a curb weight of 1676 lb (760 kg) which, in combination with a 60 hp (45 kW) engine, gives the car strong handling characteristics that can be quickly mastered by players.

Performance

The Speedster is a nimble car due to its short dimensions and low weight but also has lacking engine performance and a high tendency of body roll under heavy cornering. Due to a strong selection of upgrades such as a Race level weight reduction upgrade however, the Speedster can be easily improved with significantly quicker acceleration and more rigid suspension although it will also become harder to handle if not tuned properly.
