Khyzyl Saleem Unveils A Slammed, Lowered, & Flared Porsche 356A

Based in Guildford, Surrey, Khyzyl Saleem is unequivocally one of the world’s most celebrated automotive designers and concept artists, with a wildly impressive portfolio that includes commissions from a slew of major manufacturers, celebrity clients, and AAA game studios, just to name a few. And while Saleem is certainly no stranger to working with Porsche-based projects — having put his idiosyncratic spin on numerous 911s — the “Kyza” had never previously tackled the Stuttgart brand’s iconic 356 model, at least not until now.

Saleem has taken the mid-century model and bestowed it with his signature lowered and stanced aesthetic, along with some visual inspiration from Porsche’s 964 Carerra RSR such as dramatically flared fenders and a neo-retro interpretation of a classic “whale tail” spoiler with an integrated rear deck-lid. A chopped windshield and deep-dish five-spoke wheels add a bit of modern flair without overly compromising the 356’s aesthetic DNA. While markedly more understated than the majority of Saleem’s work, the self-taught concept artist’s 356A project undeniably represents a less-is-more ethos, though is by no means any less impressive than any of his previous projects.
