Watch This Insane Porsche “Safari 911” Go Off-Roading
Finally, a 911 you can tear through the woods in.
Not for pro racer Leh Keen, who customized a classic 911 into a project car he dubs the “Safari 911,” and then thoughtfully shot a video of him enjoying the car’s rough-and-ready capabilities.

“As soon as you go up and down a dirt road and fly around a corner, and dust and rocks are flying up, and you’re in a 911, it all comes together,” said Keen in comments posted with the video by Porsche Club of America. “It all makes sense — it’s like a really, really nice Baja Beetle,” Keen says.”
Indeed, it makes so much sense that Porsche raced modified 911s off-road decades ago. In fact, the company won the famed Paris-Dakar Rally in 1984 with a 911 nearly as cool as Keen’s creation.
