Emory Allrad is an All-Wheel Drive Porsche 356 To Die For

Very few cars have the aura and the reputation of the Porsche 356. Built from 1948 to 1965, it represents everything we love about Porsche to this day.

That said, the Porsche 356 isn’t a great choice as a modern daily driver in its original form. On the other hand, this Emory Allrad commissioned by the owner of bicycle frame builder Independent Fabrications is a dream come true.

Essentially a 1964 Porsche 356C body installed over a 1990 Porsche 911 C4S, the Allrad can go places the original car on which it’s based could never even fathom. The car was built to climb ski hills in winter, after all.

A lot of tweaking and modifications went into fitting the 356 to the 964 911. Rod Emory of Emory Motorsports needed four years to complete the Allrad. The wheelbase is the same as the original 356 so some cutting was needed to fit certain components of the 964 like the center tunnel.

On the other hand, the rear of the 356 was widened to match the 1990 Porsche 911 rear track. Some modern components added to the mix include K&W shocks and 16-inch black wheels wrapped in Pirelli winter tires.

Power is supplied by a 2.4-liter Emory-Rothsport flat-four engine with 200 horsepower. A five-speed manual from the 1990 911 is used to channel the engine’s power. The torque split can be manually adjusted by the driver to ensure optimal traction.

Racing touches such as a removable roll cage and speedster seats facing a Momo steering wheel tell us the Emory Allrad won’t just be used for driving in snowy roads. We can expect to see it on a track somewhere at some point.
