The Pick of the Day has been professionally built into an outrageous rally car
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.
