Emory turns classic Porsche 356 into all-terrain, rally-inspired "all rad" machine


We're not sure what it is, but there's just something mesmerizing about a Porsche sports car going full-blown off-road, whether it's a Safari 911 or Cayman rally prototype. Emory Motorsports proves that holds true across generations, all the way back to the 356. The California Porsche restorer and customizer combines a 1990s 911 all-wheel drive with a 1964 356 to create the one-of-a-kind 356 C4S "AllRad" (that's "AllWheel" over in Deutschland). And boy does this thing look good tearing up dirt.

A safety cone-orange Mitsubishi 4x4 camper van would typically be showstopper enough for any motorhome expo booth, but Campers Scotland came out blazing from both hands at this month's Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show, where it also debuted the Eco Explorer. Less rugged but still a 4x4, the hybrid Eco Explorer offers low fuel consumption and a self-charging battery system to keep the lights on and cooktop firing. An LPG option gives it three drive-power sources and up to 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of range per fill-up, while a deconstructed kitchen and sliding rear bench make it a capable everyday driver.
