The Porsche 550RS is a car that participated at the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1958. Compared to the 550RS the biggest update was the new Spaceframe chassis, consisting of a considerably lighter and more rigid frame while the body design still followed that of its predecessor, but was distinguished by a louvered hatch on both sides behind the cockpit.

The French Jean-Paul Colas team with Jean Kerguen and ‘Franc’ Jacques Dewez at the wheel of the Porsche 550A RS n.34 finished ninth at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1958 with a gap of fifty-one laps from winners.
