Go Open-Air Off-Roading In This 1977 Porsche 911 Targa Safari Build

Although Safari builds were once seen as sacrilege amongst the Porsche collector community, these days, off-road-ready 911s are a dime a dozen. Amongst the more respected aftermarket customizers is Leh Keen, a professional racing driver, lifetime Porsche enthusiast, and founder of the Keen Project. However, given that his order list stretches over two years long, you better be patient.

That is unless you fancy picking up the sweet 1977 Porsche 911 Safari Outlaw shown before you. It first underwent a full nuts-and-bolts restoration before getting treated to a stunning 14-coat Gold paint job. Afterward, it was fitted with an assortment of suspension components from Elephant Racing, each of which is identical to the ones used on the Safari Rally cars from the 1984 season. But the star of the show has to be the engine. Completely rebuilt by Wrightune Engineering, it includes everything from new uprated camshafts to a new oil pump and electronic ignition system — a project which cost well over $38,000 to complete. Add to that an interior that’s been redone in period-correct leather, a restored Targa top, and some Singer-finished wheels, and you have a stunning 911 fit to be called a Safari. It can be yours for $163,845.
