Over the last decade, Porsche 911 safari builds have become increasingly commonplace, though the vast majority of these projects utilize earlier, vintage 911 donors. And that’s what makes this expertly-executed Porsche off-roader so noteworthy, as it’s been constructed around a modern 997.

Built in early 2021, the project has received a JRZ 997 Safari suspension setup with a 3” lift, RSS adjustable lower control arms, Tarret adjustable thrust arms, and an aluminum skid-plate. Riding on 16″ Braid Winrace wheels wrappped in BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires, the 997 has also been gifted a hood-mounted LED light pod, a 997 Turbo deck-lid, a Yakima roof rack housing a full-size spare, bespoke “SAFARI” badging, a Thule bike carrier, and a Zunsport mesh grille. Powering the off-road-ready 911 is a 3.6L flat-six that’s been bestowed with a B&M short shifter, a  six-speed manual transaxle, and “Gundo” mufflers exiting through Carrera S quad exhaust outlets — an arrangement that’s good for 345hp and 287ft-lbs of torque. Alongside a custom roll cage, the build’s interior has also been outfitted with Recaro Pole Position seats paired with Schroth racing harnesses, a Bose stereo system, and an Alcantara trim package adorning the handbrake, shift knob, and the build’s GT3 RS steering wheel.

This modified safari-style 2010 Porsche 911 997 Carrera Coupe is currently being sold through Bring a Trailer out of San Francisco, California. As of the time of writing, bidding has reached $50,000, with roughly six days remaining on the sale.

Purchase: $50,000+
