The 356 RSR started in 2012 when founder Rod Emory had an idea — combine the 356 with arguably the greatest 911 made, the 964. Two years later, a call from MOMO chairman Henrique Cisneros got the project rolling. The Rod and MOMO collaborated on a bespoke wheel design and that the car needed to spit flames, like the high-strung Porsche race cars of the past. The result is the 356 RSR, named in honor of the legendary 1973 Porsche RSR. A barn-find 356 body was married to a 1990 964 chassis, with a twin-turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four engine developed with Rothsport. The engine is completely custom, with new castings and crankshaft specifically designed for the project. The body got a total makeover, with the rear being heavily modified to show off the turbos and allow for ultra-short exhaust to easily breathe flames. The 356 RSR is a wild marriage of the best of Porsche's past and present in one high-performing package.
