Get an inside look at the irreverent, rule-breaking subculture of hot rodded, or “Outlaw,” Porsches in this handsome volume featuring stunning photography and interviews with key players.

Being cool rarely means being “correct.” And few other sports car genres better reflect that ethos than Porsche Outlaws. The enthusiasts and builders behind these modified Porsches defiantly toss out the rulebook along with the factory-correct parts. From custom paint jobs to modified chassis, engine swaps to racing interiors, rally replicas to historic racer tributes, Porsche Outlaws are about building your dream car. These enthusiasts live by the “drive it, don’t hide it” credo and they’ve become one of the most popular sports car subcultures around the vaunted German marque.
 
Porsche Outlaws chronicles this rapidly growing Porsche cult. The cars are hot rods in every sense of the term, but the basis is a 356, 912, or 911 model rather than a 1932 Ford. Author and photographer Michael Alan Ross presents:
 
  • The full Outlaw story from its historic roots in the 1950s through today
  • Interviews with well-known builders and adherents like Rod Emory, Freeman Thomas, Rob Ida, John Oates, Jeff Zwart, and Magnus Walker
  • Historic and contemporary photography of a host of fantastic modified Porsches
 
Porsche Outlaws is a must-have addition for any Porsche-enthusiast library.
