Auction Block: 1983 Porsche 911SC Safari

Apr 11, 2018

The pursuit to find a one-size-fits-all set of wheels that feels acclimated anywhere the tires travel can often feel fruitless. Nevertheless, Avant-Garde Collection of Portland, OR set their sights on the prize when they created this go-anywhere, do-anything 1983 Porsche 911SC in Safari trim.

Acquired by the selling dealer a year ago, this well driven 911SC example has seen extensive modifications before being put up for auction. The chassis received a massive facelift in the form of a 2.5-inch suspension lift from Elephant Racing, with coilover shocks mounted at each wheel, giving enough room to tuck in the 16-inch Braid wheels wrapped in meaty 27-inch BFG All-Terrain tires. Under the hood, the factory 3.0-Liter flat six cylinder got a complete teardown and rebuild with the inclusion of high performance cams, freshly balanced pistons, and an upgraded Permatune CDI unit, giving some extra pep in the step of the safari ready rallier. Additional add-ons include aluminum skid plates and drivetrain guards, a massive TRE light pod, and a Warn winch, everything you’ll need to have piece of mind when blasting off the highway and shredding through the dirt.
