Racing driver Leh Keen has been building amazing Safari 911s for a while now, so he got a whole crew of lifted 911 owners together to do a fun road trip/off-pavement excursion called the Keen Project Appalachian Adventure. Of course, if you have a Safari Porsche 911 built for apocalypse duty, you know what to do: send…
SEMA cars don’t usually do it for me as they tend to be more show than go, but Kelly-Moss Road and Race built a ridiculous 911 that’s meant to go everywhere. Words cannot express how much I want to hoon a 911 through the dirt, and the car that won SEMA’s “Best Off-Road Vehicle” is extremely relevant to my interests.
If there’s one car that really, truly got me into cars, it has to be the Porsche 911. I have seen many very good Porsche 911s in my lifetime, but Leh Keen’s off-road-ready Safari 6 911 may just be the best 911 I’ve ever seen. Everything about this build is absolute perfection.
I’ve been asking Santa Claus for a Porsche 911—a Guards Red 911, even—for every year since I discovered what a 911 was, and it looks like he’s kept it for himself. If Santa kept it to hoon it with reckless abandon, shoot, I ain’t even mad.
I don’t think anything quite epitomizes the perfect attitude behind driving an off-road Safari 911 quite as much as setting clips of Porsche hoonage to Rick Ross’s “In My 911.” You have a lifted Porsche made to get dirty. The world exists for you to hoon on it. Go forth and hoon, my friend.
When the brains behind Luftgekühlt—a celebration of all things Porsche—decided to build a car to auction off for charity, it was like they tapped into that really crunchy part of my brain that just wants to see 911s go sideways and splash through the mud. I need it. I need it so much.
