1978 Porsche 911 Safari

An off-road Porsche! We love this, partially because its just cool looking and partially because it drives automotive purists up the wall. This spectacular 1978 Porsche 911 was transformed into an off-roading beast by Makellos Classics, a full-service Porsche specialist from San Diego, California. Numerous upgrades were made to this vehicle to transform it from regular road-going coupe, to the brute of a off-roader it is today. Work included custom-fabricating rear strut mounts and a roll cage, as well as front and rear brush guards with aluminum skid plates, an upgraded suspension, PAGID Racing brake pads, a removable off-road UMP intake system, and fifteen52 wheels wrapped in Pirelli all-terrain tires. The headlights have also been replaced with 9eleven Raven S units, and Cibie rally driving lights were also installed along with a vintage-style roof rack. Power comes from a 3.0-liter flat-six equipped with 964-grind cams. This unique off-roader is now being offered for sale in California, is was featured in the short film that is attached below. watch the video below
