    Of bodystyle definitions as I know them:

    a convertible but with detachable windscreen posts = a Speedster

    Roadster = Speedster but with side-curtains in doors, not roll-up windows

    Either way .. that hardtop is not a Speedster

    I was thinking the exact same thing..the windscreen looks too vertical and the rear of the third pic looks off.

    yeah I know but the image Adam posted doesn't look right even compared to a genuine 356 Coupe..

    hmm, obviously not then.

    Possibly a Porsche 356 C Coupé? , or a Porsche 356 T5 Coupé ?

    I don't think it's a T5, the front indicators are different on that. The one posted above has one vent on the rear. The T5 had one on the rear, the C coupe had two and the normal coupe had one centre one and two smaller ones, one on either side.
    All the signs I see so far point to it being a replica..as it has a T5 rear and a normal coupe front..

    bmwpower, I'm not sure anyoe coudl call on the Lancia Stratos replica or not.
    Yes its a tacky paintjob and stickers, but as the original Stratos had a Ferrari V6 engine then a modern owner may wish to highlight that in their own way.
    ( the file is labelled "74" which woud put it smack in the Stratos productioin lifetime )

    Also, the site it's from doesn't mention anything about it being a replica.

    This is a GTM Rossa. Mk II i think, but i am not too great with that kind of thing.
    Matra is wrong about it being a GTM Coupe.

    The Porsche is a replica; just look at the wheels and the exhaust.
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
