The Test Drive

Bloomberg automotive critic Jason Harper test drove a replica Porsche 550 Spyder in Danbury, Connecticut. It is one of the rarest and most desired Porsches ever made. Only 90 of the original mid-engine 550 Spyders were made in the 1950s, each of which sell for millions of dollars today.

Spyder Creations say their replicas of this rare vehicle are as close to the original as possible; that's what reverse engineering can do.
