Nick states that the Porsche is a 1958 Speedster and that James Dean had one just like it. James Dean died in 1955 so it is impossible for him to have owned a 1958 model. Dean's Porsche was a 1955 356 Speedster which was produced from 1948 thru 1955. The Speedster in the show was a 356A in production between 1956 and 1959. (The "Little Bastard" (the car he was driving when he crashed and died) was a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder and is the one most people associate with James Dean.) See more
