1959 Porsche 356 “Transitional” Speedster By Emory Motorsport

Porsche 356 Emory Transitional Speedster

Rod Emory, the visionary behind Emory Motorsports, has unveiled a remarkable tribute to speedster heritage: the “Transitional” Speedster. This bespoke creation pays homage to automotive history with meticulous attention to detail.

Adorned in period-correct Aquamarine Metallic paint, the Emory 1959½ “Transitional” Speedster radiates vintage charm. Enhancing its allure are hand-painted Mobil Pegasus logos, seamlessly blending nostalgia with contemporary craftsmanship.

“The donor car for this particular project is a 356 coupe whose roof was seriously compromised in an accident,” says Rod. “Because the roof was not repairable, it provided us a superb canvas for developing a truly one-of-a-kind 356 Outlaw that echoes everything enthusiasts have come to adore about the classic Speedsters of the era.”At the interior it features Hydes Red leather upholstery with carpeted seat backs, Speedster-style seats, padded headrest, 2-point competition harnesses and charcoal square-weave carpet.

“Porsche enthusiasts will notice that this build does not wear a “Speedster” emblem. “ continues Rod Emory, “the ‘Speedster’ model was made between the years of 1954-1958, being replaced by the Convertible D in 1959.”

The Emory Outlaw 1959 “Transitional” 356 Speedster is more powerful than the 1,600 cc original, it received Emory’s latest engine option, the 2.4-liter Emory-Rothsport “Outlaw-4” engine fed by Weber 48 IDA carburetors, delivering 205 horsepower.

We think it looks fabulous.
