Not »ruchlos« at all: Although the »Willy« 911 conversion by Kelly-Moss-Racing was radical and executed without false shyness, it is not a crime. Rather, it is something elevated in terms of ground clearance - suitable for the use of the word on its license plate. The rebuilt G-Model also proves its style in its concept: There, classic RS style on the inside of the door meets modern accents in the form of digital instruments and real off-road capability. The Safari 911 thus combines the clear lines of its base, a 911 Carrera 3.2 from 1984, with the expertise of the established custom shop from Madison in Wisconsin.

Within ten months, his team has given the unique piece a consistent off-road treatment: 17-inch Fuchs replicas, off-road tires and a suspension travel of more than 25 centimeters are no showmanship, but genuine uncompromising driving pleasure off the beaten track. Complete repainting and reworked 3.4-liter boxer engine with 340 hp included, of course. And after the workout on loose terrain? Thanks to LED strips in the front and rear apron, roof structure and matching tent, the off-road 911 can even be used as an air-cooled camper if required. No question about it: This is what every Sports Utility Vehicle can look like.

The vehicle is currently for sale. More information on the auctioneers website.
