Honest outlaw: 1964 Porsche 356 C Coupé

In the last few years we have noticed a growing esteem for those classic cars that once would have been considered simply abominations: body of the time with high-performance engines and suspensions.

Perhaps the first to go down this path were the British guys at Eagle who built E-Types (and Aston) with those upgrades that, although they didn’t upset the Jaguar E-Types from an aesthetic point of view, they equipped them with technical updates able to face the challenges of modern use and traffic. The Porsches, on the other hand, were the first classics to undergo this type of transformation: first in an artisanal way, then in a more structured way like Emory and Singer do in California.

This 356 C was not built by either of the two aforementioned manufacturers, however it looks like a high quality build. It was equipped with a 150hp engine and a Porsche type 901 5-speed gearbox, as well as a beautiful green leather interior and four Fuchs rims. It looks perfect to us with one exception: we would have preferred instruments with the same black / green graphics as the original ones. Find it for sale at €99,950 (today $105,000) here in Vught, Netherlands.
