This 1956 Porsche Speedster is a one-off hand-built replica that screams Hot Rod Outlaw Custom.

Built by Ken Vela of WIKD KUSTOMS, who focuses on unique builds for unique clients. This Speedster is a true character car.

Ken Vela found the car on Ebay in 2000. It originally sat in Santa Barbara for 20+ years, unfinished and abandoned. The new owner could not finish it and it was too far gone. He wanted a vintage race inspired 356 Porsche. After collecting over a thousand vintage race photos of all makes and models, he began the design.

It’s has an HB Aircooled Type IV 225 hp 2.4 liter motor, 400hp shot of wet Nitrous, Porsche 911 5 spd, accusump oil system, remote nitrous purge and electric deck lid with aluminum scoop. A low gloss black patina paint and body, shaved door handles, shaved front end, hand built flares, plexiglass windshield, UFO rear view mirrors, hand painted number 13 gumballs, kustom aluminum tonneau cover, Rollbar and complete cage, 4” dropped floor, Nitto street/strip tires wrapped on 15 X 10 & 15 X 9 Centerline wheels, kustom black and red leather seats with black diamond tucked red stitched interior, rally stopwatch hidden stereo with steering wheel remote.

Ken uses the car strictly for the track, car shows and events, we are happy to display it for our vistors.
