Barn Find Porsche Becomes A Twin Turbo Frankenstein Build: Rod Emory’s 356 RSR

Rod Emory is a legend in the Porsche game - so when he's got a new build, you know it's going to be worthy of an in-depth look. His 356 RSR is no exception to the rule - we're absolutely gawking over this thing's updated-yet-period correct styling and engineering. Take a deep dive into this thing with us, from the updated twin turbo powerplant to the "correctly color-aged epoxy" on the rear ducting. Insane.

  • Not feeling the fiberglass floor mats and dash, would of rather used carbon fiber, and the front grills need to be changed and blacked out to match the wheels

  • What a beautyful piece of Art & Work done to this old Porsche, as a guy from Germany i always loved the old one´s but with the transformation you did on this old 356 you took it into another dimension on a very high level without all this "electronic-stuff" you don´t need on a race car at all. Very well done. Love it.

  • While I appreciate all the thought and skills that go into such a build, I just do not get the point of it. Is it to go as far away as possible from the original and still find a few people who shout hooray? The 356 was a light, nimble car with fluid lines and not a huge amount of horse power. If you like that, restore a wreck. If not, don't take what remains and pervert it. Take no matter what small car chassis and plumb in a huge engine, done. Think AMC Pacer or any other car no one likes....

  • The welds on that dry sump tank are 🤢🤮. It distracts from the build like a toddler got loose in the Sistine chapel with a crayon. I’m just saying call fuel safe and have them make one to match the quality and craftsmanship they put into the fuel cell. I love this build, the builder is a legend!
