It’s not often that you stumble across one of Emory’s decade-old Porsche builds, and even more rare when the car in question happens to be a race-ready variant. However, every once in a while, a unique specimen matching those distinct characteristics makes its way into the public eye. Such is the case with the 1968 Porsche 912 Emory Outlaw Racer that you see here.
After leaving the factory in 1967, this unique Porsche remained in the care of its first owner until 2000, when it fell into the hands of classic car restorers, Rod and Gary Emory. As the world’s most notable Outlaw Porsche builders, the pair decided to convert the vehicle into a 911R-inspired racer, adding bespoke upgrades like a new fuel cell, customized Koni shock setup, Minilite wheels, revised bodywork, and an extensive list of smaller modifications paying homage to the manufacturer’s vintage vehicles. Alongside the 912’s rebuilt 1.7-liter flat-four engine, the car’s interior has been significantly transformed, opting for the introduction of period Recaro seats, a taupe headliner, six-point roll cage, and OMP racing harness, shedding light on its racing roots. Obviously, we’ve just scratched the surface of this legendary air-cooled model, so head to Bring A Trailer — where the car is currently listed for auction at $35,000 — for a deeper dive.
