We’ve long been absolutely blown away by the one-off works from Emory Motorsports, and the Southern California Porsche Tuner’s latest project is no exception. Dubbed “Speed Yellow,” this 1958 Porsche 356 A Emory Special was completed in late 2020 and was inspired by “the competitive spirit of early GT cars.”
Weighing only 2,000lbs, the 356 coupe is powered by a 260hp 2.6L Emory-Rothsport “Outlaw-4” engine with electronic fuel injection, a Motec-controlled coil-on-twin-plug ignition, 901 aluminum case five-speed transmission, and a fully-bespoke exhaust system with custom stainless steel headers and a 911 sport muffler. Riding on 15” satin black-powder-coated billet alloy wheels with radial-brushed faux brake hubs, the 356 project boasts numerous performance upgrades in the form of a proprietary disc brake configuration, a 901 independent rear suspension setup with custom-narrowed trailing arms, adjustable Koni shocks, front and rear sway bars, and rack and pinion steering. The heavily modified exterior now sports a pronounced B-pillar modification with custom quarter windows, body-hugging bumpers, a reverse-louvered deck lid, GT-style mirrors, front air inlets ducted to front brakes, and horn grill and hood handle deletes. The interior gets a roll bar, 904-style triple gauge, black leather-upholstered on Speedster-style seats with two-point competition harnesses, an Outlaw billet shift knob, Speedster dashboard, grey square-weave carpet with rubber floor mats, and a leather-wrapped Moto Lita steering wheel.
