1955 Porsche 550 Spyder sports car
1955 Porsche 550 Spyder. Nicknamed the “little bastard,” this is indeed the sports car that James Dean drove to his death during an auto rally. But that’s not why we should remember it. Some consider this Porsche’s first pure race car. Its extremely light weight and low-to-the-ground design helped it earn another more complimentary nickname: “The Giant Killer.”
