Well, it’s not exactly a 356A anymore and it also doesn’t exist in the real world

LISTEN 01:45

Khyzyl Saleem is back at it with a new drool-worthy set of renders that envision a tricked-out Porsche 356A Speedster. And by tricked out we mean a couple of 964 Carrera RSR-inspired styling cues and a whale tail of sorts.

Yesterday I asked you all what you thought of the @porsche 356a, it's always been one of those cars I've just never...

In case you’re familiar with the work of Rod Emory and Emory Motorsports, you’ll quickly notice that these images are right in that mindset.

The company’s Outlaw range of restomods involves concours-quality restoration to the metal, stiffened chassis, modified 911 suspension and the company’s proprietary Emory-Rothsport four-cylinder engine. These builds are always pure eye candy and a joy to drive. And while we can’t drive Khyzyl Saleem’s latest digital creation, we can at least admire it on a screen.

The artist admits he never paid the 356A too much attention as far as design goes, so he took some of that Emory goodness and rehashed it to his own liking. The result is a speedster that flaunts a body fitted with oversized fenders, some design elements borrowed from the 964 Carrera RSR and a reimagined whale tale.

Just like it’s the case with every car designed by Saleem, the speedster sits awfully close to the ground and rocks a set of aftermarket wheels. On top of that, we know the artist has had past collaborations with tuners on real body kits that ended up on real cars, so it wouldn’t be that far-fetched to hold some hope that this one will, perhaps, inspire an eccentric billionaire into converting his 356A.

We know we’d love it in our garage, but we still need to figure out how many banks we need to rob to afford one.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
