Vintage car fans will be delighted to learn that North Californian classic car dealership Canepa is now offering a 1963 Porsche 356B outlaw equipped with a full range of upgrades.

The start of its outlaw journey began roughly 10 years ago, when the current owner introduced the car to a cosmetic restoration, stripping down everything to allow for metal finishing, bodywork, and a sleek black paint job. The next upgrade came in the form of a new 1,925cc engine from Air Power Racing, which doubled the vehicle’s stock horsepower to 130 horses. A KK Sebring stainless-steel exhaust with ceramic coating was installed for sound and flow improvements, while a four-speed transaxle from Rancho Transmissions made shifting gears an even more enjoyable experience.

Not satisfied with just greater power and a smoother transmission, the owner went on to give the remaining parts a makeover as well, tapping Willhoit Restoration for a new sport suspension that added stiffness to the car’s torsion bars, sway bar, and shocks. Complementing these changes are 5.5×16” HRBB allow wheels with wider tires, working in tandem with factory 365C disc brakes and slotted rotors. Finally, Willhout Restoration helped install an all-new full leather interior created by Autos International, bringing GT seats to the classic in a green leather finish. A custom 14” wood VDM steering wheel from Bruce Crawford was installed alongside a factory removable roll bar, as well as a short shifter kit, a 12-volt electrical system, and GT gauges.
