As blasphemous as it may sound, the Porsche 911 certainly lends itself to a menagerie of different customization and modification types, especially when speaking on avenues of adventure and exploration. “Safari” variants aren’t anything new, but when it comes to precise execution, H&R and Burkhard Industries’ newest project has us questioning our restorative beliefs.
Although exact details on the pair’s most recent build are sparse, the 1986 Porsche 911 Safari that you see here is the result of countless hours of interior and exterior shop work. When it comes to the vehicle’s outward appearance, the introduction of a custom-built, aerodynamic roof rack and centrally-mounted exhaust system serve in stark contrast to the 911’s sleek, rounded persona. To further accent the classic’s lifted aesthetic, a pair of large off-road tires sit atop a recognizable wheel design, complementing H&R’s specialized performance-focused coil-over suspension — a system touted to bring traction and handling to the forefront in off-road conditions. Inside, a rally-style shift lever, bucket seats, and a newly-introduced roll cage join forces to create something truly special. Head over to H&R’s Facebook to see the Safari-style 911 in action.
