Here’s A Detailed Look At The Insane 400 HP Porsche 356 RSR

When it comes to building bespoke Porsche models, few do it as creatively as Emory Motorsports, whose latest project is a nearly 400 HP hot-rodded 356 RSR model, assembled as an homage to the classic 935 racers of the 1970s.

The goal was to also retain the Emory 356 Outlaw styling, and thankfully everything fell into place, including the presence of a perfect donor car – a 1960 Porsche 356B T5 Coupe in dire need of restoration.

“It started back in 2012 when I had my friend Greg Macey sketch a concept I had in mind for quite some time,” Rod Emory said. “Once we zeroed in on the details, we had a second rendering done by Avedis Djinguelian to serve as a more representative style guide to the finished product. The actual build time was about four full years.”

The now-removable nose and rear bodywork is all hand-formed aluminum, just like the deck lid and the bonnet. In order to relieve wheel-well air pressure, the tuner added louvers and front fender stand-offs. Other air management mods include stainless mesh grilles for the cooling ducts, plus intercooler air inlets for the rear fenders.

The final touches applied to the exterior were the modified Porsche 911 rocker panels and Plexiglas side and quarter window. Meanwhile, the color of the car is called Meteorite Matte Metallic.

With performance, the Emory-Rothsport twin-turbo Outlaw-4 2.4-liter boxer engine is good for 393 HP, which is a tremendous figure in a car that weighs just 1,950 lbs (884 kg). The unit is based on the dry-sump 911 3.6-liter powerplant from the 1990s, incorporates two Garrett GT28R ball-bearing turbos backed by custom intercoolers and is mated to a G50/03 five-speed manual transmission.

As for the interior, it’s all street legal, despite looking like it belongs on a race track, sporting a MOMO steering wheel, adjustable pedals, Porsche 917-inspired shifter knob, 911 RSR-like seats, quick-release 6-point MOMO competition harness, amber fiberglass footboards and dashcaps, a rollcage and plenty more.
