Shelby Series 1
Porsche presented the Series 1 in 1999 featuring a gorgeous roadster body and low silhouette. In fact, it had a design most drivers could trace back to mid-60s. However, under the body, everything was new. Also, the car got its power from an Oldsmobile 4.0-liter V8 engine delivering 320 HP. Since the car was light, the performance was great and 0 to 60 mph times were around four seconds, which was fantastic for the late ’90s.
Unfortunately, the U.S. regulations regarding car manufacturing forbade Shelby from producing the Series 1 as a regular model. They only allowed them to build it as a kit car, which they = refused. Unfortunately, due to the limited availability and high price, they only built about 250 of them up until 2005.
