There is something captivating about the classics. As you can probably tell, we have a soft spot for iconic, old cars, and today we get a prime example of such. Emory Motorsports is known for creating Porsche 356’s with performance that offers a modern aesthetic. Today we get a look at an Emory 1959 Porsche 356A Coupe. This beautiful machine is a bespoke build commissioned by the seller in 2013.
The vehicle has had continual upgrades by Emory since. The biggest was the conversion from the original 185 horsepower pushrod flat-four to a 205 horsepower overhead cam four-cylinder 911 engine. This stunning machine also incorporates Emory’s custom 911-based suspension and a dry-sump oil system with a remote cooler. The interior is pure vintage Porsche, boasting outstanding attention to detail throughout. The interior comes draped in saddle leather with Spinneybeck inserts on the seats. The roadster-style door panels, square weave carpet, and four-point harnesses are a nice touch as well.
The vintage racer has an undeniable old school allure, though the best part is you won’t have to wait to get one. This beautiful machine is available immediately, which is certainly better than waiting years. The ride comes priced around $300,000 USD, though the level of craftsmanship and quality warrants it.
