After completing features on Rothsport Racing’s Safari 911s in print and film, and seeing what they could do, I was convinced. This is the ultimate answer to an off-road Porsche. And it is. If you want to actually finish the Baja 500 or Mexican 1000.

On the other hand, if that is not your absolute goal, if you just want to have some fun in the dirt with a Porsche 911, then there is room (apparently a lot of room) for a less intense build. Rothsport Racing has built a few, and they are awesome. Kelly Moss Racing has done some, so has Luftgekühlt, Accumoto, and Elephant Racing. I’m actually surprised Singer hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon yet.

However, what really had re-evaluating my stance was the Leh Keen Safari 911 build video above.
