Vehicle story

October - April - Can be made available (with some planning) for photoshoots / Special Events. Not available for Driving Rentals during Fall/Winter. The car will need to be taken out of storage for a rental during that time frame, adding a $75 fee to the rental cost.

A PARTNERSHIP - (scroll down for quick policies)

The car and you must agree when it is time to shift into the next gear, how close to hug that corner, and when to just relax and put the top down. In this partnership, you make one another look really good!

Being an Intermeccanica owner is part of a story of roots, passion, and innovation. When I was seven years old, I decided, the 356 Porsche was made for me. When I was in my 20s I realized that driving around a rare historical artifact was less than practical and not particularly affordable. Yet, I had much respect for the 356, too much to turn to the average kit car. That is when I met Henry Reisner of Intermeccanica: history, roots, passion, innovation, craftsmanship, and respect.

Intermeccanica is a hand-built coach that, with every sanded down curve, pays tribute to the 356 Roadster Convertible D. This car is solid and provides the driver the ultimate 356 experience with some modern extras, power windows, air conditioning, smart-phone audio connection, and a couple of cup holders.

At this age-stage in my life, the hum of this motor and the simplicity of this machine gives me a break from daily life. Maybe you will find the same Zen moment behind the wheel or add to your special occasion with her tuxedo look. Whatever the occasion, it is sure to be a classy, yet cool partnership experience; in an iconic sort of way.

POLICIES -

AVAILABILITY: If you have a date in mind, but it looks to be booked. Send me a message and I will see what I can do. To perform regular maintenance and give the car some rest, I often block off dates.

PICK YOUR TOP - Uniquely, this car can switch between hard and soft/convertible tops. Let me know what top you would like ahead of time. The hardtop provides more protection from the elements and is more inclosed - but not suitable for drivers over 6'

NO RAIN - Not suitable for rain/bad weather. If you are "rained out" and you are unable to continue on with your scheduled time, I can provide you with a Drive Share gift card for another rental.

STAY CLOSE - Not suitable for long-distance road trips. Restricted to Snohomish, King, and Pierce counties.

PICK-UP UNDER THE SUN - Rental Time must begin during daylight hours (avoid driving this car for the first time in the dark).

KNOW HOW TO SHIFT - This is a vintage car that requires current experience with a clutch. 4 gears, H-shift.

RISK - Note the assumption of risk when driving such a small vehicle with no airbags/roll bar. You must use an attentive and defensive driving style.

WEDDING DAYS OR OTHER - When scheduling this car for a Special Event, I will do everything in my power to make sure the car is ready, available, and running perfectly. However, due to the nature of the car, unexpected maintenance situations may come up - making the car unavailable (although hasn't happened yet). My commitment to safety and reliability may cause a cancelation. Please, always, have a plan B.

ROAD RASH - Years ago, this car was used as a daily driver and has since gone through a restoration process. However, it is not museum quality. It is a classic car with some squeaks, personality, and a patina... meant to be driven. She has a story, as all good classics should. My intention in sharing her is to create a community around her that gives back to the car. Earnings go directly into the car's maintenance and improvements. I love hearing guest suggestions and ideas on adding extras or changing out something. I’m so excited is to share and create a collective enthusiasm and partnership around this little 356!

GET TO KNOW HER - Upon delivery or pick up of the car, please allow 15 min to learn about operations.

LEAVE YOUR CAR IF YOU WANT - I have a large driveway at the end of a cul-de-sac. You are welcome to leave your car at my place.

AGE RESTRICTION - You must be 25 years or older to operate this car. The exceptions are a valid motorcycle license, professional driver, or previous experience driving vintage vehicles.

NON-DRIVING USE - If you would like to use this car for a photo shoot only (nondriving) I'm available and happy to drive the car to the shoot location(s). For shoots that take longer than 90 min, I ask that your pay for my additional time at $75/hr.

This is a Custom Coach Intermeccanica Build 1998 Roadster D.

Pick-up instructions

Flexible. Let's coordinate. However, avoid rush hour/heavy traffic and nighttime driving (when driving this car for the first time). Generally, you would pick-up from my home in Lynnwood. You are welcome to leave your car in my driveway. Allow for 15 min to go over the car's operations. Flying into Pain Filed airport? That's very close to me! I'm happy to deliver the car to you there for the price of a cup of coffee! All other deliveries/pick up of the car are charged the delivery fee of $50 (each way) and an additional $1 for every mile outside of the 35 miles radius of Lynnwood. If a ferry is required, the cost of the fare/ticket needs to be considered.

Absolutely incredible car! It turns heads and everyone wants to talk to us about it. We loved it so much this is the second time we've rented from Leann. Leann is very engaging and a great person to rent from. We'll rent again next year !!

Leann was a wonderful person to work with. Very nice and easy to communicate with. Her Porsche was absolutely stunning and was a blast to drive. the whole process of renting from her was a breeze and it couldn’t have been any better :). she took the time to answer all of my questions and fully explained the operation of the car. The car was easy to drive and it turned a lot of heads. We used the car for our wedding announcement photos and they turned out way better than expected!!
