What would happen if Porsche had access to modern technology back in 1960? That is what Rod Emory asked when he embarked on this mission. What began as a sketch in 2012 has come to fruition, as Emory Motorsports Porsche 356 RSR.
Their goal was to combine the wild looks of the 935 race cars, envisioning what a Porsche Werks 356 would look like. Artist Greg Macey shared the illustrations on Instagram, where the caught the attention of MOMO CEO Henrique Cisneros. He told them to make it a reality, so Emory found a rusty 1960 365B coupe that was going to be scrapped.
A new body was hand-made from aluminum. It rides on a 1990 Carrera 2 chassis, and power comes from a 2.4L flat-four. It makes 400 horsepower at 17.5 lbs of boost and sends it to the rear wheels through a G50 5-speed transmission. Momo provided a distressed steering wheel to match the time period, along with seats, racing harnesses, and a beech wood shift knob.
