Someone Made An RC Classic Porsche 911 Safari And It's Perfect

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.

Instagram user trialpsycho_rc’s whole feed is full of awesome little RCs, and their YouTube channel has clips of the machines in motion.

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?

Come on, Andrew, to you really think Tom was going to give that to his kids? Tom wants to buy this for himself! And he wants to put it in a glass case, lock it up and throw away the key so no one gets to touch it!

Tamiyas are already expensive, but so what? If I had the money, I’d buy one myyself and lock it up. What’s one more model to the collection?
