Belle bête

Is this a Porsche? Caught on Avenue de Paris on 5 February (in front of this week's doorway behind the bus stop!)

What ever wonderful car it is, I'd want to be very warmly dressed and have an excellent heater!

A rather cute one in my opinion !

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

It looks like a very old one, which means it's probably worth a ton of money. And a convertible to boot!

Bob Crowe said...

Yes it is! A C Convertible, I think. My sister's then-boyfriend had one in the early 70s. Well, actually a C Coupe hardtop. His was beat up but it ran well. I was impressed.

My first car was a Triumph TR4 (also beat up). What a delightful piece of junk.

I'm not sure but I know it sure is cute.

Makes me think of Mon Mec a Moi by Patricia Kaas....Le Voiture! Hope you get your dream car soon.

C'est pas un temps à décapoter.

Cute little car. Great for someone short to zip around town.

Now, this ONE I could drive a way in.

Kaori said...

Make me wish I could drive a car. That is a classic :D

Lowell said...

It is indeed. You can tell by the logo on the front. I think it's a late 50s or early 60s model. They were in great demand back then and very expensive! Our daughter's father-in-law had one that he loved.

Dave said...

Beautiful, although far too smooth a car to be called a beast.

Jack said...

I am not a car guy, but it looks like a Porsche to me. You can give it to someone else. I can't fit in the things.

I would love to drive around the countryside of France during the summer in a car like this..
I did it in 1980 in a Ford Escort.. Calais to Perpignan..
Wondeful memories.

Bonjour,
Je tombe par hasard sur votre page.
Beaucoup d'erreurs dans les commentaires donc je corrige l'info.
Il s'agit d'une PGO, constructeur français spécialisé dans la fabrication de répliques. Ce modèle, qui est récent, est très largement inspiré de la Porsche 356 speedster.
James Dean s'est tué au volant d'une Porsche 550 spyder.

Hi, this is a car made by PGO, a french manufacturer specialized in replicas. This car is a modern one but is inspired by the Porsche Speedster. James Dean crashed while driving a porsche 550 Spyder.
