Buy This Safari 911 and Take It Off Road Immediately

Back in 2012, Porsche built an official Safari 911 as an exploratory concept. They ultimately decided to go no further with the concept, and even kept the car they actually made to themselves until last year, but the car proved that the Safari 911 can be more than just a popular build for older 911s paying tribute to the car’s brief rallying heritage. Newer Safari 911 builds are rare, but not unheard of.

This, for instance, is a Safari 911 built from a base model 997.2 Carrera. That trim level makes it a car much more in line with the original Safari cars than with the more famous all-wheel drive 959 that won Dakar: This is a rear-wheel drive car with a naturally-aspirated flat six and, in this case, a six-speed manual transmission. The car is prepped for a wide variety of terrain with a massive lift, all-terrain tires, and a skid plate, then finished with additional front lighting, a roll bar, and a fittingly huge roof basket.

The build was completed earlier this year by the current owner, who bought the car in its stock grand touring form and built it out for more rugged duties. The car has 90,000 miles, the vast majority of which were put on the car with the stock suspension and wheels.
