Cars that are not supposed to go off-road, made to look off-roady, are so hot right now. Who can blame us for going nuts over a Porsche 911 on all-terrain tires, though? The absurdity is just too delightful. But if you can’t bare to rip up a real one for Fury Road, this small-scaled version is pretty sweet.
Jalopnik’s resident car buying expert Tom McParland showed me trialpsycho_rc’s small-scale 911 Safari creation here, then complained that he couldn’t buy one for “his kids.” Sure, Tom. This toy is far too glorious a work of art to be bestowed upon children and you know it!
I’m a little sad I can’t buy one too, but that kind of makes it cooler. The uploader of these images seems to have custom-made the thing themselves. The off-road Porsche body is apparently grafted onto a Tamiya TT01R remote control car.
I haven’t owned an RC car in a long time but I love looking at them, and these images are really making me miss them.
Obviously we all like to drive, but I think it’s pretty cool that creativity in the car world comes in all kinds of sizes.
Hopefully we’ll see some of this Safari Porsche in action. Looks like a GoPro would fit on that roof rack, right?
