Something strange and a little magical happens when Americans get their hands on a Porsche 356, unrestrained by the conventions of concours and with a healthy measure of American individualism they set about creating what has become known as an “Outlaw” – a Porsche 356 Hot Rod.
These cars make the purists gnash their teeth, but as a rule, you never want to pay too much attention to the opinions of a person who uses a toothbrush to clean their car. The Porsche 356 Outlaws are cars that Ferdinand Porsche himself would instantly recognise and, dare I say it, love.
