  • The car was in a serious roll over accident and was repaired with the front of an RSK! This would probably explain the poor coach work in the restoration!

                          • To complete my topic in the News from France topic on the 2018 Le Mans Classic there were 2 550 this year

                            This one I suppose to belong to the Swiss car collector Michel Vogele

                            • The second 550 was a 550 RS with an English registration who was displayed in the exhibitors and sponsors village in a special corner supposed to show to visitors Porsche of different periods
                              This one did not show on the ytrack but I suppose to be an original

                              when I say I suppose to be an original it is because on the 5 Porsches displayed by the Le Mans Classic organiser Patrick Peter at least 2 were complete fakes
                              First a fake 718 RSK

                              I really don't understand how a wise guy as Patrik Peter could have been fooled by unscrupulous owners who pretend their cars to be real ones when they are only fakes

                              • The 550A in the display area looks original, but the 550 which raced on the track was a replica from http://502motorworks.com/502-spyder.html which was able to get FIA accreditation
