Founder of FX Restoration, Karl
Lawley, discovered his love for cars, and especially a
passion for classic Porsches while spending part of his
childhood living in Germany in the late '70s and early
'80s. As a teenager back in the US, Porsches were
the dream cars that were pictured on posters, and were certainly not attainable.
So, at 15 years old, Karl worked on a team restoring classic
Ford Mustangs, where he learned many vital mechanical
and restoration skills that would serve him throughout
After spending some time restoring
classic Datsun Z cars, Karl was finally able to purchase
his first Porsche, which was a rundown 1986 944.
After restoring the 944 back to a reasonable level of
its former glory, he joined the Porsche Club and began
taking it to track events, which naturally led to the
purchase of other Porsches, Porsche restorations and
performance upgrades. Also, he discovered the need
for better aerodynamic components for street and track
Porsches, and in 1999 Fiberwerks Products (AKA FX Aero)
After spending 16 years focused on
producing the best aftermarket Porsche aero components
for the 997, 996, 986, and 944, Karl's passion for the
classic Porsche models never died; nor did his love of
restoring classic cars back to their former glory.
So, in 2016 FX Restoration was founded to focus on the
resurrection of some of the world's most loved classic
