Auction Block: 1978 Porsche 911 SC ‘Safari’

Feb 25, 2019

Category: Rides

Porsche cars have a significant rally heritage — competing across a wide range of locales and covering nearly every continent, the German automaker knows what it takes to create a race-ready vehicle. The 911 SC is, perhaps, one of the manufacturer’s greatest road-faring vehicles, and now, one idealistic variant has gone under the knife for a complete rally makeover.

This 1978 Porsche 911 SC “Safari” has undergone extensive modification since its original purchase in Fellbach, Germany. After a quick acquisition in 2018, the vehicle was promptly outfitted with a slew of off-road-oriented parts, from custom-fabricated rear strut mounts and aluminum skid plates, all the way to KW Clubsport coilovers, Pagid Racing brake pads, and all-terrain tires — building a beast that hungers for outdoor exploration. The 3.0-liter flat-six engine is complemented by a 915 transaxle that was outfitted with a Wavetrac limited-slip differential and shorter throws through the second and fourth gear, while an updated interior complete with Recaro seats, a custom built roll cage, and PRP harnesses exude the timeless racing pedigree. This impeccably built vehicle is being listed for sale via Bring A Trailer and it’s expected to fetch upward of $34,000.

Purchase: $34,000
