The Porsche 550 was a sports car inspired by the Porsche 356 which was created by Ferry Porsche. The model Porsche 550 Spyder was introduced at the 1953 Paris Auto Show. The 550 was very low to the ground, in order to be efficient for racing. In fact, former German Formula One racer Hans Herrmann drove it under closed railroad crossing gates during the 1954 Mille Miglia.
The 550 / 1500RS or Spyder became known as the "Giant Killer". The later 1956 evolution version of the model, the 550A, which had a lighter and more rigid space frame chassis, gave Porsche its first overall win in a major sports car racing event, the 1956 Targa Florio.
