Emory Motorsports is back with their take on the Porsche 356 RSR.

After putting a Porsche 356 on a 1990 Porsche 911 body and giving it all-wheel drive, Emory Motorsports is back at it with a new project, the Porsche 356 RSR.

The basic idea is the same as the Emory Allrad, take a 1990 Porsche 911 C2, or 964 if you will, and put a Porsche 356 body on top. More specifically, you put the 1960 356B T5 Glasshouse body on top. Then, you put twin-turbo four-cylinder engine behind the seats that delivers 393 horsepower, and you have a serious machine. The first Emory Porsche was designed as an all-wheel drive, mountain-climbing Porsche 356. This is more the track burning variety. With almost 400 horsepower and just 1,950 pounds to pull around, Emory had to make sure the other components of the car could follow along.

Quite a bit of custom bodywork had to be done as well. Fitting a car that was built in the 60s on a car from the 90s is a challenge, even if they are both Porsches. Emory kept the suspension positionning of the 911, but modified the frame to fit the 356-era engine.

There are quite a bit of Momo parts in there as well. According to Emory, Momo CEO Henrique Cisneros reached out with an offer to help after seeing the Porsche 356 RSR sketch on Instagram. Momo parts include a quick release steering wheel, billet pads on the pedals, the shift knob, a competition harness and and seats which replicate the Porsche 911 RSR’s headrest-less seats.

Although the look is certainly different, you can’t not love a modern take on the Porsche 356, especially when it offers nearly 400 horsepower to move less than 2,000 pounds.
