Emory Motorsports' Porsche 356 RSR is well known, making appearances at various car shows throughout the US. Rod Emory, the builder of this Outlaw Porsche, has given plenty of details, such as a twin-turbocharged air-cooled flat four derived from a 911 air-cooled flat six, beefy Momo wheels reminiscent of those found on 1970s and 1980s 935, 956, and 962 race cars, and more. But Petrolicious now has the inside scoop from the man himself on how the car was conceived and the story behind the build.

In the video above, Emory gives us the details on the 356 RSR and, importantly, drives it on Southern California back roads, allowing us to see what it looks like in motion and hear the little flat four bark on and off the throttle with the hiss of the turbochargers.

Watch the video above to learn more about the 356 RSR and see how this race car-meets-street Porsche ethos plays out.
