Illustration for article titled Porsche 356 Outlaw Customs Roundup

Hot Wheels has been on a roll this year. Between the BMW 3.0 CSL, Fairlady Z, and the new NSX and Shelby GT350R, it has been a very good year. But the cake still gets taken by the Porsche 356 Outlaw. It has been released in two colors already, both of which are fantastic, and everyone seems to have at least one.

But the biggest argument for the Outlaw being casting of the year, is that it clearly provides both seasoned and less experienced customizers with a beautiful and very inviting canvas to create new variations on.

There are a ton of Outlaw customs on Instagram, but after a quick survey, I can definitively say that it is also the most customized casting LaLD has ever seen, with 23 customs reported. Clearly time for a recap of all this 356 goodness.

For the purposes of clarity, I have divided them into three categories: Mild, Moderate, and More. Mild means wheel swaps, and perhaps a tampo delete or two, the Moderate category contains resprays, and More means mods. Body mods, to be exact. Things like custom interiors, louvre deletes (or additions), closing up the gas filler hole, etc.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Perhaps more of a design study than a true custom, but still looks great on those “fuchs” wheels in the back.

I suppose this could be a continuation of the previous design study, but either way I really dig the detailing.
