Taking one of Porsche’s most iconic platforms to the mud-stricken trail might seem blasphemous to some, but for many of the manufacturer’s modern contemporaries, the prospect of an off-road Safari car can only be described as exhilarating. While these rarified variants have become increasingly difficult to come by, Wisconsin race-car builder Kelly-Moss has made the search a bit easier; thanks, in large part, to this newly-listed 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera.
Over a painstaking, but rewarding 10-month refurbishment, Kelly-Moss has stripped, refreshed, and renewed the once-begotten car, which had been raced for the majority of its life. On the exterior, the car brandishes a set of large BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires, 9eleven LED headlamps, and a 30-inch Black Oak LED curved light bar that can be seen in its front bumper. But this black and gray overlander isn’t all aesthetic. Various performance enhancements make their debut, including aftermarket Brembo brakes, Eibach springs, Exe-Tc inverted twin-tube gravel dampers, and a Tilton master brake cylinder, giving the vehicle a rally-inspired persona on, and off, of the blacktop. For this build, Kelly-Moss went even further by creating a modified stock aluminum front bumper and custom aluminum lower valance, foreshadowing the car’s extensively-customized interior. There are too many details to list, so head over to Vicci Car Auctions’ website — where the car is listed for $375,000 — for more info.
