Just about every media outlet covering the 2017 SEMA show in Las Vegas had something on this most-outrageous piece of Porsche performance hardware, including followup video of wild Hoonigan activity on a frozen lake in Wisconsin.
The Pick of the Day is a 1991 Porsche 964 that has been professionally transformed into an all-wheel-drive, supercharged Porsche 911 rally car by Kelly-Moss Road and Race.
Named the VICCI Safari 4, the Porsche is advertised on ClassicCars.com by a Madison, Wisconsin dealer, that calls the KMR creation “the newest and most extreme build from the premier Porsche race and custom shop.”
The Safari 4 “is an untraditional take on the 50-plus year tradition of off-road/rally 911s,” according to the ad. “Show-quality bodywork and a fully detailed, fully custom interior work in tandem – if semi-contradiction – with long-travel suspension, a strengthened skid-plated chassis, AWD and a supercharged 3.8L to yield a uniquely upscale way to get down and dirty.”
Porsche is famed for its rally-car exploits, from cup racing on treacherous dirt roads to the famed 959 challenge of the Paris-Dakar rally across the Sahara Desert. This custom racer extends that tradition with the latest performance and off-road gear.
The video shows a shredding demonstration of the “one-of-a-kind monster,” the cabin filled with the shrieking whine of the Eaton supercharger. This Porsche is a no-holds-barred special that seems to have had the best of everything included, with a lengthy list of specialized equipment included in the ad.
Very impressive stuff, as is the asking price of $335,000. But for that, you get the bragging rights for one of the baddest big-boy toys on four wheels.
