Singer John Oates has got one of the most bad ass Porsches on the road as the Hall & Oates guitarist receives the keys to his own Emory Outlaw. The 1960 Porsche 356 "Emory Special" is based on a 356B Cabriolet body and features a long list of modifications. This updates includea sleeker nose, a removable hard top with a streamlined roof profile, 356A-style bumpers, an Outlaw-4 engine that is based on the Porsche 3.6L 964 engine, which is mated to a 911 aluminum case 5-speed transmission.
The chassis has also been brought up to date with an early Porsche 911 independent rear suspension, adjustable Koni shocks, front and rear swaybars to reduce body roll in the corners, an Emory four-wheel disc-brake system, and Pirelli P Zero Ross tires on customized 15x6 black powdercoated billet alloy wheels with mirror-polished hubs. The interior also gets a heavy reworking with Hydes cognac leather, Speedster-style seats with basketweave inserts, mid-1960s Porsche 904-style triple gauges, and a Derrington steering wheel.
