Rod Emory is the owner of Emory Motorsports and a third generation gear head. After years of building and modifying automobiles with his grandfather and his dad, in their McMinnville facility, he launched his own business restoring vintage Porsches. The company grew and he now operates a second facility in Lancaster California. Rod, like his grandfather and his father, takes his craft seriously and not only restores old 356 Porsches but takes them to the next level by creating one of a kind outlaws. Custom builds that go beyond anything Dr. Porsche created. Rod also restores and services vintage Porsche race cars and you’ll find iconic models including the 906, 908 and Porsche Cooper in his shop. Rod is a visionary craftsman and coach builder who continues to expand and grow the Emory family spirit.
