Emory 356 C4S : sacrilège ou coup de génie ?

Rod Emory est la 3e génération passionnée par les voitures. Comme son père et son grand-père, il se consacre aux anciens modèles qu’il restaure. Mais, certains pourraient penser qu’il est hérétique de toucher à une Porche 356 ! Quand il a fondé Emory Motorsports, Rod voulait proposer des Porsche 356 restaurées, mais surtout personnalisées.

Jerry Seinfeld Adds Ex-Matt Drendel 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo RSR To His Collection

According to a recent post on Instagram, renowned Porsche collector and comedian Jerry Seinfeld has recently picked up a new aircooled and turbocharged toy. This bright orange 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo RSR is one of just 31 cars ever built, and represents the transition period for Porsche between the naturally-aspirated 911 RSR and the 934. The photo posted two days ago shows the car as it was fresh-off-the-boat from Europe to Canepa Motorsports in Scotts Valley, California. Seinfeld, who lives in New York, presumably flew out to California just to meet his new baby.

 

Just arrived in US. 1 of 31. So excited.

This same car, one of only 31 built to carry this name plate, once belonged to the Matt Drendel Porsche collection, and was auctioned off during Gooding & Co’s Amelia Island sale back in 2012. This is a car that has been entered in, and victorious at, some of the most competitive and historic races in the world. Delivered to Sepp Greger in late 1975, this car made its debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona before being shipped back to Europe where Leo Kinnunen and Egon Evertz campaigned the car with a 935-style rear wing for the remainder of 1976. The car wouldn’t find major success until 1980 when it was entered in a number of races with Texaco backing and Autofarm Racing support for Richard Cleare and Tony Dron. That year, this car won its class in the Silverstone 6 hour race and the 1000km race at Dijon. In 1982, the pair teamed with Richard Jones to place 13th overall and win the GT class at the 24 Hours of Le mans. The car was already 8 seasons old, but finished out its career with a 1000km win at Brands Hatch later that same year.

The 2012 auction saw the car sell to Europe for a mega $891,000 sum. The prior owner remains secret, but it’s clear that Seinfeld is quite excited about the prospect of driving his new 3-liter turbocharged monster. This is a production-based racer with a 930 VIN, meaning it could technically be registered for street use in many states. Jerry seems like the kind of Porsche enthusiast that he’d at least try to drive this rear-drive 530 horsepower machine on the street. It certainly wouldn’t be very comfortable, but it’d be a big old heaping helping of fun. Would you drive a Le Mans-winning Porsche on the street? I might.
