Spectacular coupe weighs only 885 kilograms
Auction house RM Sotheby’s put up for sale a hot rod called the Porsche 356 RSR Outlaw, a hybrid of two models from the German brand: a 1960 Porsche 356B T5 and a 1990 964 C2. The current rate is $ 350,000.
It took about four years to build an extreme hot rod studio Emory Motorsports from the American state of Oregon together with the Italian company Momo. The 356 coupe sports car inherited a matte black body, which had to be manually adjusted to the chassis from a Porsche 911 with index 964.
From Momo, the car received black five-spoke wheels, which were used in the late 70s of the last century on the racing Porsche 935, 956 and 962, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires. Inside, sports seats with six-point seat belts, a Tilton pedal assembly and a Momo Prototipo steering wheel were installed.

The 356 RSR Outlaw is powered by a 2.4-liter twin-turbo with Garret turbochargers and Rothsport injection, producing 393 horsepower. It is coupled with a five-speed manual transmission. The dynamic characteristics of the hot rod are not disclosed, but its curb weight is known, which is only 885 kilograms.
At the moment, the rate for the purchase of the Porsche 356 RSR Outlaw is equal to 350,000 dollars. According to RM Sotheby’s forecasts, the total cost will be from 450,000 to 650,000 dollars. Less than 12 hours left until the end of trading.
In early August, a red Porsche Carrera GT, produced in three copies, was accidentally found in Guangzhou, China. The rarest supercar has been gathering dust for eight years in one of the bankrupt Ferrari and Maserati dealerships.
