Kelly-Moss Turns An ’82 Porsche 911 Into A Rugged 340HP Safari Rally Car

Oct 20, 2020

Founded in 1988, Kelly-Moss Motorsport is one of the most knowledgeable and respected Porsche tuning outfits, with a full-service GT race shop, a world-class restoration operation, and a bustling custom vehicle program—the latter of which just unveiled its latest one-off work with an all-new 911 safari build.

Dubbed the “LITA” (or the Texas Safari”), the build started life as a 1982 911 SC, though has been treated to a host of off-road upgrades including Fuchs replica wheels by Braid wrapped in BFG all-terrain tires, an RSR-style front sway bar, custom skid plate and bumper protector, a Lietz-style roof rack, 9eleven LED headlamps supplemented via KMR carbon fiber hood pod with HELLA lighting, KMR spring package-equipped Exe-Tc Gravel spec dampers, KMR lower control arms, a carbon fiber ducktail-style engine lid, and flared and louvered wheel arches courtesy of Rod Emory. Powered by heavily-massaged and bored-out a 3.4L engine mated to a 915 transmission and putting down 340hp and 260ft-lbs of torque, the go-anywhere 911 also gets a fully bespoke Tartan and distressed leather interior with custom cooled Recaro Sportster CS seats and a Porsche Classic Navigation head unit with Focal speakers.
