This Porsche 356A Outlaw is the second instalment of the Porsche 356 coupé, introduced in 1956. The 356A introduced Porsche's Carrera engine to the market, 8 years before its use in the Porsche 911 Carrera. The 356A is often called among its enthusiasts the 'T1' because of the factory designation 'Type 1'.
The Hot Wheels casting is detailed with notches to simulate the ventilation for the rear-fitted engine and a fuel filler cap through the bonnet. This is casting is modeled after a lightly customized 356A. It was customized by Porsche king Magnus Walker. As of 2017, this is the second oldest model of Porsche car made by Hot Wheels, after the Porsche 550 Spyder.
