1958 Porsche 356 Emory Special

Rod Emory restores Porsche 356 coupes and convertibles at his shop in northern Los Angeles. His company Emory Motosports are specialists in customising the Porsche 356s since the late 1980s. The timeless model was taken out of production in 1956 but has since remained a favorite of car collectors worldwide. Dubbed the "Emory Special", this modern take on the classic sports car has been updated with some premium flourishes for the exterior and interior, plus several performance upgrades, all without losing that timeless appeal. Beneath the elegant and impossibly minimal exterior lies a 2.4-litre 185bhp flat-four engine along with Weber IDA carburettors, Carrera-style dry sump and custom intake/ exhaust manifolds. Other details include a shark-like gills on the side to facilitate cooling of the rear-mounted engine, a safety roll-cage, aerodynamic fender-mounted mirrors, custom built front bumper, caged vintage headlamps, and old-school fog lamps that beautifully blend into the design. If you want something similar, be prepared to wait, it takes 18-months to build an Emory with the kind of detailing done upon the car both mechanical and aesthetic. One look at it and you know why.
