Emory’s 205HP Porsche Speedster Is A Classic Open-Air Masterpiece

Emory Motorsports is a staple of California’s car culture, and even more so in the recreation, and restoration, of Porsche’s most iconic platforms. Over the years, the company has gifted a handful of the industry’s most lauded vehicles to the masses, helping it to gain a reputation that’s nothing short of legendary. Now, they’ve pushed the boundaries even further with this 1959 Aquamarine Transitional Speedster.

The vehicle you see here was inspired by Porsche’s original 1954-1958 “Speedster” model, adopting an open-air silhouette, racing-inspired aluminum tonneau cover, and a similar headrest hoop and cage as its progenitor. To give the car the revered “Emory Outlaw” look, the team applied a period-correct Aquamarine Metallic paint, a handful of bespoke bonnet modifications, and a reverse-louvered deck lid, complementing the vehicle’s Charcoal square-weave carpet interior, Hydes’ red leather upholstery, and a triple-gauge speedometer/tachometer inspired by Porsche’s iconic 904. To support the 205-horsepower Emory-Rothsport Outlaw-4 engine’s additional figures, a modified 901-style IRS suspension was contracted, alongside adjustable Koni dampers, custom rotors, and calipers, and a set of 15×5 Tecnomagnesio wheels on Dunlop rubber.
