The Custom Porsche 356 C4S AWD “AllRad”
When a client of Emory Motorsports wanted a dependable Porsche C4S for East Coast ski trips, the team had to come up with a new design. The builders decided to commission a 1964 Porsche 356C body and an all-wheel-drive 1990 911 (964) C4 chassis to get the job done. It took four years and the highest amount of attention to detail to complete the build.
Features of the 1964 PORSCHE 356 C4S
The Porsche 356 C4S has 200 comfortable horsepower thanks to the Emory-Rothsport 2.4-liter “Outlaw-4” engine, dual Weber 48 IDA carburetors and a G64 5-speed AWD manual gearbox. The team decided to keep the 356’s wheelbase, shorten the 911’s center tunnel, and slightly widen the 356’s body to match up with the rear track of the 911. They used adjustable coilovers paired to the 911’s chassis to smoothen the ride and optimize control.
Standard C4 disc brakes provide the needed stopping power and the 356 C4S rolls on custom 16×7 powder-coated black wheels with Pirelli Ice Zero tires for all-weather traction.
Bodywork includes a wider rear section, flat hood and a 3D-printed roof rack to carry bikes, skiing equipment and winter gear.
