This year’s SEMA Show, the gargantuan convention of the aftermarket industry, opens its doors on Halloween. Seemingly in celebration of that, Emory Motorsports is teasing one seriously Frankenstein-like 356 build that it says will exhibit at the show.
Whether or not Emory plans to actively build the car at SEMA isn’t quite clear. Their social media team posted simply, “at SEMA you can check it out in progress and see under the skin.” That could mean it’ll show as a work in progress, or the progress of work will be a spectacle to watch.
On site builds aren’t uncommon at SEMA. Chip Foose and the Overhaulin’ team filmed whole episodes of their hit build show during SEMA show week during certain years. Should SEMA be planning to let visitors watch Emory’s skilled team wrenching on the 356 RSR, that’d certainly make for one incredible show attraction.
As for the car, here’s what we know. Emory mentioned Momo Motorsport in its post, so likely they’re involved in the build in some capacity, maybe even underwriting it. We can see from the released photos that the car rolls on some very interesting looking 917-style wheels with Momo logos. The Facebook post also confirms the car will be a 356 “with 964 guts”.
Whether or not work will continue on site at SEMA may still be unclear, but we can infer from the Facebook post that work won’t be completed at SEMA. Emory also revealed that they’ll be debuting the 100% finished car at Rennsport Reunion next year.
