Description

After doing the cosmetic restoration to the Porsche, the owner decided that he wanted to go all out and make it into a hot street ''outlaw.'' What transpired was a complete build that addressed everything from power to handling to its interior. The air-cooled flat four engine increased to 1925cc by Air Power Racing, with a stout est. 130 horsepower. A ceramic-coated KK Sebring stainless-steel exhaust ensured a better-flowing and much better-sounding exhaust note. The 4-speed transaxle was built by Rancho Transmissions, shifting effortlessly and easily putting down the newfound air-cooled power. With the upgraded engine now pumping out more than double the stock horsepower of a 356B, the car's underpinnings needed an upgrade and an upgrade did they receive. Willhoit Restoration, artisans in all things 356s, went through the Porsche and updated everything to match the engine's new power output. Willhoit went to work, disassembling the 356 down to its individual components. Willhoit sport suspension with stiffer torsion bars, sway bar and shocks were installed to sharpen the handling. 5.5x16'' HRBB alloy wheels were added with wider tires, and factory 356C disc brakes and slotted rotors were added to complete the suspension upgrades. While the car was disassembled for its suspension work, the entire car's paint finish was color sanded and paint corrected, producing a deep gloss from the black paint work. During reassembly, Willhoit added 356 GT deco trim to the front of the car, giving a final nod to what people might consider the factory ''outlaw.''
