Emory Motorsports Allrad Porsche

Last Call: A dash of modified motivation on a Monday

Rod Emory cranks out some of the coolest old Porsches you’ll come across. Case in point is this ridiculous stunner of a machine. It’s a 1964 Porsche 356 on the outside. Peek under the skin and you’ll find the chassis of a 1990 964-era C4S. The car, dubbed “Allrad” has a KW suspension setup, a 200-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, and winter tires.

Oh and the ski rack is titanium, because why not?

    Well, regarding this here dolled up Porsh I’ll tell you a little story that keeps crossing my mind through the years. It’s the story of a one-liner, a gag, a quick joke. Long ago, before I was born this here French fellow by the name of Jacques Tati made a film. It were in color, this film, but you couldn’t rightly call it a talkie since there weren’t any talkin’ in it. Anyhow Mr. Tati plays a character, calls himself “Mon Oncle” (that’s “my uncle” in English, I guess), who’s a little confused about how to get by in this modern day French city he used to know so well before he went off to war to save it from destruction. See, he keeps tryin’ to use the old ways of getting things done and he just doesn’t cotton on to the new ways. I don’t think he’s terribly impressed with modern life. Just watch him take a ride in an Ice Cream Sundae painted Tri-Five…

    Hah! That’s a good ol’ gag. You know, the first time I saw that gag was in a later film but all the elements were there. A good ol’ boy just back to his home town, tryin’ to adapt to the new scheme of things that just can’t compare to the way they used to be. “Fix the cigarette lighter”!


    Anyway, regarding this here dolled up Porsh…

      My favorite tidbit is that “avant-garden fountain” that only gets turned on when visitors are coming – and turned off again when it’s “only” Tati. The noise of the valve…

      “It were in color, this film, but you couldn’t rightly call it a talkie since there weren’t any talkin’ in it.”

      That’s why they called ’em movies, for they were movin’.

      Between the reprofiled hood, roofline camoflauged by the roof rack but more so the widened rear this has lost a bit of 356 character IMO. It kind of looks like a 550/718 spyder with a roof.

        It’s kinda derpy, at least from that angle.

          Yep, and that was what they chose as the best angle…

    It’s gorgeous. Can’t agree with myself though if I’d prefer the current correct-ish seats or something with more support, a headrest, and a three point belt.

    I expect “the scene” to jump the shark soon, i.e. safari-out a 928.

    In another realm of problems I am looking for a car jack that can lift the 944 front at the engine traverse and ideally has a handle that can swivel, so I can pump up the car in my too short a garage. Turns out that length/depth dimensions are hardly recorded, and these things cost an arm in shipping (40+ kg). I’m also intrigued by one of these, with the central lift points of the 944 these must be perfect: up, tilt, insert jackstands, wrench. Any real-world experience? https://www.autoliftproduction.com/#autolift3000

      Looks like for that price you are really close to a two post lift. You might be able to find a low profile one.

      How about a low profile 2-ton jack (to keep it short) and either cut down the handle or get another piece of pipe? I don’t think the leverage would be missed lifting a 944.

      Also check them out physically at a store rather than order online, or ask one via phone.

      Another thought, could you lift it using a scissor jack to start and then a bottle jack, even a manual one? Add a block of wood to the process if necessary. It would be a bit painful but presumably you aren’t doing it every day. Or is that what you do now?

        Two things you just educated me about:
        – A higher rated jack won’t require the full leverage, just more pumping: the 1.25t thing I have is basically impossible to use at half length for the 700kg front.

        – What’s more: a scissor jack will probably do the trick, and they are really cheap, even the better ones: 2min of research produced a 25USD/2t version that will just fit and lift up to 50cm height.

        I can only give you one up-rating, so my verbally expressed thanks must do!
