Gaze into the Aquamarine blue of this Emory Outlaw Porsche Speedster

https://driving.ca/porsche/auto-news...sche-speedster

Rod Emory's latest open-top Porsche build started as a crashed coupe wreck
by ALEX REID | 13 HOURS AGO


The gearheads at Emory Motorsports have created another stunner in the Porsche Outlaw scene.

For all you Porsche nerds out there, you’ll know the company’s Speedsters were made between 1954 and 1958, replaced by the Convertible D in 1959. This custom car represents a fictional 1959-1/2 “Transitional” model.

The car started out as a rusted hulk, with a roof so badly damaged that Rod Emory and his team decided to ditch it entirely. The client for the vehicle was fully on board with a Speedster look, so Emory Motorsports obliged, hand-forming the aluminum tonneau cover and headrest fairing.

In the trunk is a classic Porsche flat-four, but now displacing 2.4-litres and making 205 horsepower thanks to Weber 48 IDA carburetors and MSD twin-plug ignition. The engine drives the rear wheels only thanks to a lightweight four-speed gearbox.

The suspension has also been heavily revised with a 901-style independent rear setup, as well as adjustable Koni dampers and upgraded sway bars. Brake rotors and calipers borrow heavily from the 911, and the 15-by-5-inch wheels with Dunlop SP 5000 tires stick it to the ground.

To finish it all off, the car is painted in a period-correct Aquamarine Metallic paint, with a beautiful contrasting red interior.

Looks great, they are interesting builds. I saw his black beauty in person two weeks ago at DTA3 here on the east coast.... I do like the speedster restomods, but like the longhood back dates alot more as they are exploding in the custom market now.

Absolutely stunning. I love restomods. Address the shortcomings and bring the car up to more modern specs under the body.

Agreed, they are both great, but different, and I do appreciate the speedsters and coupes prior to the 911
