Emory Outlaw 911K Is A Stunning Homage To The Legendary 908 Sports Prototype
Emory Motorsports are well-known for their rather awesome 356-based creations, each one a unique build tailored specifically to suit the client’s exacting requirements. The Emory Outlaw 911K you see here is the very first 911-based build that company owner Rod Emory and his skilled team have built, and judging from the results we hope there are many more to come.
“This slab-sided Emory Outlaw 911K is unique,” says Rod. “We specialize in 356s, and we did this 1968 911 SWB as a one-time commission for a special client. The inspiration for this car comes from Porsche 908-010, a K-bodied sports prototype once piloted by Vic Elford. The design cues and livery from that car lend themselves beautifully to this build.”
The 908 was one of Porsche’s first closed-cockpit works prototype designs and this particular 1968 908-010 is one of just five believed to exist. Owned by Porsche collector Cameron Healey, it was used sparingly for vintage races up until 2016, maintained by Emory Motorsports. Rod saw this iconic piece of Porsche’s racing history as the ideal car on which to base his 911K on. It’s brimming with details that evoke memories of the famous race car.
Notable motorsport cues can be seen in the air horns, auxiliary lights, mesh intake guards and twin-grille decklid, while the Light Ivory paintwork with signal-yellow accent and hand-painted Mobil Pegasus also mimic the race car’s livery. The interior has 908-inspired front seats complete with five-point Momo harness, and the Momo Prototipo steering-wheel, roll bar and lightweight door panels complete the racing look.
A modified 190hp 2.5-liter flat-six is fitted in the rear and is complemented with such detail touches as a hand-laid amber fiberglass airbox and a 935 cooling fan and shroud. A full-flow oil system, Fuelsafe fuel cell and three-way adjustable suspension along with upgraded brakes ensure that the 911K will continue to perform like a thoroughbred race car. We’re hoping that Rod and his team take on further 911-based projects…
