This Exclusive 1960s-Era Porsche Outlaw Coupe Is Heading To Auction Next Month
A one-of-a-kind vintage Porsche collaboration will be leading to auction next month. The 1960 Porsche 356 RSR Outlaw Coupe was made in collaboration between Italian-based Momo as well as Rod Emory, a Porsche enthusiast who specialises in 365 Outlaws.
Rod Emory and his wife, Amy, started Emory Motorsports in 1996 in order to work on such models: with the iconic Porsche 356 Outlaw restorations delivering a customised experience unlike any other on the Porsche market.
This specific 1960 Porsche 356 RSR Outlaw Coupe was crafted using a 964-generation Porsche 911 foundation with a noteworthy aluminium body that snakes its way around the entire exterior. The twin turbo Emory-Rothsport Outlaw-4 engine also features an impressive 394 horsepower.
The vehicle will be made available through RM Sotheby’s Online Only: SHIFT/Monterey auction—which, due to COVID-19, will be exclusively available for virtual bidding.
