James Dean’s Porsche – Dean died in his Porsche 550 Spyder on 30/09/1955, aged 24.
James Dean was an American actor. He is a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as a troubled teenager. His other two film roles were in East of Eden and Giant. Dean's enduring fame and popularity rest on his performances in only these three films; his premature death in a car crash cemented his legendary status. Dean became interested in developing an auto racing career and purchased various vehicles after filming for East of Eden. He was driving his Porsche 550 Spyder to a Road Race event in Salinas when he had a collision and died, just nine days after buying the car.
