When racing driver Leh Keen is away from the track and not piloting his potent Porsche 911 GT race car in the United SportsCar Championship, he likes to hone his skills in the coolest way possible.
While it might by a shock to some, the Porsche 911 proved a successful rally car not long after it launched in 1963.
As a matter of fact, it claimed the European Rally Championship in 1967 and, spurred on by this success, a unique example was produced for Africa’s Safari Rally. While the car wasn’t victorious, the 911 Safari has become somewhat of a legend.
Actually, Keen’s 911 Safari isn’t a real example but rather a 1981 911 SC he modified to go off-road. It includes raised suspension, a retuned engine, mud flaps, off-road tires, steel bull bars and four additional headlights.
We can’t think of a much better way to spend the weekend than driving this through the forest!
