For those who are fans of Porsche, but love off-road rides, the SUV on offer by the German carmaker is not exactly ready to take on the challenge. Even though it is capable of small off-road excursions, we would rather opt for something that can handle a little more abuse. A greater power probably heard our pleas and led us to discover the Kelly-Moss 1984 Porsche 911 Safari. At first glance, you’ll know right away that this is something you won’t find in a dealership anywhere. Moreover, it is certainly more intimidating than the stock version.
Starting out as a refurbishment project, it eventually wormed its way into something more. After more than 10 months of hard work, we are now looking at a machine with a racing pedigree ready for a rough ride on dynamic terrain. Kelly-Moss Director of Operations Andy Kilcoyne is the proud owner of this bad boy. This labour-intensive build boasts a complete rework of almost everything. Its shame to see that The Kelly-Moss 1984 Porsche 911 Safari is heading to auction, but it will soon make one lucky buyer happy.
In order to accommodate its huge new shoes, the wheel wells were extended about 2.75 inches. Both the front and rear bumpers its sporting are custom jobs alongside the roof rack and roll cage. To keep the weight down, the material of choice for the roof is carbon fibre and Kevlar – a clear favourite among gearheads. With LED light bars on the front bumper and on the roof rack, it’s ready for roll even in low light situations. The Kelly-Moss 1984 Porsche 911 Safari is one of those rare builds you might only get to see once in a lifetime.Check it out here
