Auction Block: 1977 Porsche 911 Safari

Oct 10, 2019

Category: Rides

While we can appreciate a factory-original classic car, we’re also quite fond of the more avant-garde automotive experiments that show us the sometimes-bizarre and off-the-wall possibilities. For instance, standard Porsche 911s are some of the best sports coupes ever built; but this customized rally-ready ‘Safari’ build is a lot more unique and playful.

The donor vehicle for this project was a rust-free 1977 Porsche 911 with a modified 2.7-liter engine — including the addition of specially-modified Weber carburetors, a 915 manual gearbox, and an aluminum racing clutch kit. The rest of the car has also been completely revamped with over 300 man-hours put into the build. That includes equipping it with a 10-point roll cage; a customized suspension with a 12cm lift kit; scratch-built shock absorbers made by a Bilstein specialist; and (of course) undercarriage protection, modified bumpers, and a roof rack. Estimated to go for over $74,000, this Safari Porsche will hit the RM Sotheby’s auction block on October 24th of this year.

Purchase: $74,000+
