Emory Outlaw 911K Is The Porsche 356 Specialist’s First-Ever Custom 911 Project

Emory Motorsports has accustomed us with exquisite Porsche 356 builds over the years but the California-based custom expert has now turned its attention to the 911 as well.

For its first-ever fully custom 911 project, Rod Emory used a 1968 Porsche 911 SWB as a starting point and then proceeded to make it “the perfect track and rally weapon.” The design of the Emory Outlaw 911K, especially the livery, pays homage to the 1968 Porsche 908-010 race car, one of the first closed-cockpit works prototype cars.

“We specialize in 356s, and we did this 1968 911 SWB as a one-time commission for a special client,” Emory explains. “The inspiration for this car comes from Porsche 908-010, a K-bodied sports prototype once piloted by Vic Elford. The design cues and livery from that car lend themselves beautifully to this build,” he adds.

Indeed, they do. Emory’s slab-sided 911K retains the essential design language of Porsche’s early works prototypes thanks to the sleek bullet-shaped body, amber fiberglass dash cap, Porsche Light Ivory paint with signal yellow accent, and hand-painted Mobil Pegasus on the fenders.

Other exterior modifications include rally-style auxiliary lights and air horns, mesh intake guards, a twin-grille decklid, R-style decklid hinges, and R-style bumpers.

Inside, the 911K’s main attraction is the 908-inspired front seats with fire-retardant Spanish Red Veltex covers and Momo 5-point competition harnesses. The Momo-supplied Prototipo steering wheel and shift knob continue the 1960s racing theme, with the cabin also featuring a removable roll bar, lightweight door panels and pulls, as well as leather window straps.

Power for the 911K is supplied by a later 2.5-liter twin-plug 911 engine mated to a 901 five-speed manual transmission. The naturally aspirated straight-six produces 190 hp (193 PS) thanks to an MSD brain and Weber 40IDA 3C carburetors. The engine also features a 935 “flat” cooling fan and shroud, hand-laid amber fiberglass air boxes, and a full-flow oil system with remote filter and cooler.

Stopping power comes from upgraded brakes that feature 911 Salloy calipers with custom rotors and hats while the grip is ensured by Pirelli CN36 tires mounted on custom 15×7-inch 5-spoke wheels by 1552 with Porsche 935 Carrera center lock hubs.

The suspension was given a fair share of attention as well and was designed with track days in mind as it features 3-way fully-adjustable KW coil-over gas shocks. The cost of the build has not been disclosed but it’s best that way, believe us.
