The model name of R was revived with the latest type 991, but it is said that 911 that directly inherits the spirit has been created in California.
Very few cars are produced as base models of racing cars and now trade at astronomical prices. It is also above the clouds. Famous cars that have won numerous races with no-frills mechanisms, however, are not only inspired by our world-famous collections, but also a source of new inspiration. I have. Especially for the younger generation, these models seem to have important implications. The special model introduced here can be said to be a gemstone that revives the idea at the time with cutting-edge technology that once could only dream of Porsche himself.
The Porsche Homologation Special, which has many famous cars, has always been a special one.
It wasn't the fastest Porsche model, but it was the supreme 911 that was light and could run on public roads. Compact, with a naturally aspirated engine and an incredibly direct driving feel. By eliminating all the parts that are not necessary for running, and by covering the fiberglass body panel, the weight that is close to 25% of the 911S is cut down, and the 2.0 liter engine, which is very similar to the 906S, has twin engines. Demonstrate 210bhp by arming with sparks and two triple choke webber carburetors. Only 24 were built, including prototypes and Porsche workscars, but the package is perfect.

But like the GT3 RS Also, legally, you can drive on public roads, so you can use it for rallying and vintage car racing on ordinary roads, and you can use it for everyday riding. "
Some inspiration comes from models older than 1966. Rod's house has been a car lover for three generations, and his grandfather ran a shop in this neighborhood until he was asked to work for a Porsche dealer. In other words, there is a car-loving culture rooted in this land, and that thought will probably be passed on to his son. By the way, what local Porsche enthusiasts all enjoyed in the 1980s was restoring the 356 to the original, but Rod and his father create a new breeze here. After removing the bumpers and incorporating wide wheels and a high-powered engine, they showed the car numbers for racing on the body. The tailoring is perfect, even though it can withstand hard driving.
Since then, the Outlaw has been treated as a trademark of the Emory family.
