100 years of Zagato

The Italian carbuilder Zagato recently celebrated his 100th birthday. Over a century, the company built an estimated 440 unique Zagato creations. Many of these designs are unique and made once for customers, for car shows or for racing teams.

The Porsche 356 Carrera Speedster Zagato

In 1958, Zagato was commissioned to build a lightweight version from a Porsche 356A Speedster for the Frenchman Claude Storez. It was a one-off project for the driver. In 1959, Claude Storez crashed during the Rallye International des Routes du Nord. The car was a total loss.

In 2015 Andrea Zagato decided to breathe new life into the lost car with a limited production of nine Speedster variants, handmade built in aluminum with modern locking lines.
