Inspired by the Porsche 356, the factory decided to build a car designed for use in auto racing. The beauty of the 550 was that it could be driven to the track, raced and then driven home, which showed the flexibility of being both a road and track car. Perhaps the most famous of the Porsche 550's built was James Dean's "Little Bastard" which Dean fatally crashed on September 30, 1955.
