Reader Restoration Update: Shane’s Outlaw 356 is Finished, Amazing.
Shane Balkowitsch’s Porsche 356 Outlaw project that we wrote about back in September has returned to the street, and looks set to turn heads everywhere it goes.
When we last checked in on the project, the bodywork and paint were complete—and stunning—but we hadn’t seen much about the performance upgrades that would boost the stock powerplant’s 95hp to an estimated 150hp (dyno test to come later). That’s a pretty substantial upgrade; thanks to a race crank, bigger jugs, and performance cam. Shane’s shared the details (and more shots of the car mixing it up with some modern Ferraris on her maiden voyage) on his project page. It’s a marvelous document of the build, and I hope to one day create something similar myself.
Congratulations again, Shane!
