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.
It’s bright, shiny metallic purple on the outside. It has the psychedelic “Pasha” cloth inside. There’s a manual gearbox like God intended a fun-Porsche to have. It’s aircooled, with both an engine and a ducktail spoiler in the back. It’s lifted, with a meaty skid plate and mud flaps. There’s a pod of rally lights up front.
And did I mention it’s purple? The backs of the seats match the purple exterior. Please excuse me while I melt into a puddle of awe.
Safari 6—the sixth car of racing driver Leh Keen’s rally-inspired 911 builds—is all of my highly specific vehicular fetishes rolled into one car and I can’t stand it. It’s perfect. So perfect. Maybe even too perfect.
Honestly, the only thing it’s missing is a hydraulic handbrake for maximum hoon-diculousness. Get on that, Leh. Or don’t. Because then I couldn’t even stand it. The perfect Porsche would exist in its true, complete form and I’m pretty sure my brain would just explode before I could even ask if I could do donuts in it.
Anyone else using the eggplant emoji, just delete your account right now. You will never out-eggplant the eggplant-hued Porsche. Nothing else is worthy. In fact, shut down the entire internet. None of us are worthy. This is the perfect car.
