Turns out that John Oates, the legendary Hall & Oates guitarist, is a bit of a Porsche guy. He just took delivery of a custom 1960 356 from Porsche specialists Emory Motorsports one-of-a-kind 1960 Porsche 356 with style for miles and bespoke modifications throughout.
Based on Emory’s high-performance Outlaw 356, an Emory-designed and built 2.4-liter air-cooled flat-four powerplant uses the design of Porsche’s far more modern Type 964 flat six as its basis. Twin spark plugs per cylinder, computer-controlled ignition, and custom headers make the most out of the mill’s displacement to produce 200 horsepower (149 kilowatts). A five-speed manual gearbox from an early 911 sends the output to the rear wheels. The chassis has been updated with a 911 independent rear suspension and Koni coilover shocks and Emory disc brakes at all four corners.
Inside, there is a pair of low-back, vintage-style sport seats with cognac-colored leather with new retro-styled gauges and a wood-rimmed steering wheel.
