Rod Emory of Emory Motorsports has revealed a special speedster tribute called the “Transitional” Speedster. At the exterior the Emory 1959½ “Transitional” Speedster is finished in a period-correct Aquamarine Metallic paint, adorned with a pair of hand-painted Mobil Pegasus logos and features adjustable Koni dampers, and updated suspension components.
“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.
