1978 Porsche 911 “G” Safari

View all 10 Photos

Apart from being a seriously cool car, this 1978 Porsche 911 “G” Safari also has a cool story behind it. Built by Eric Brandenburg, this beauty is one of three copies of the car he drove in the massive, two-year Transsyberia Rally. The event took place in 2007-2008, starting in Moscow and ending in Ulan Bator, with terrain ranging from deserts and forest trails to muddy roads, swamps and snowy mountain passes.

The car started as a 1978 SC, which Brandenburg gutted before seam-welding the body. Now the 911 Safari features a Carrera 3.2 engine, beefed up suspension with Bilstein B6 Sport rally-spec dampers which sit upside down at the front for optimum impact reduction, as well as an adapted gearbox to provide assistance trough rough terrain. Sitting high above ground, the car has impressive ground clearance and drives through a wide range of surfaces without a hitch. 16in Fuchs rims with giant, 215/85 R16 Hankook Dynapro Mud Terrain tires complete the build. A black leather interior also gives the cabin a stylish look and feel. If you have fallen in love already and have $149,000 lying around, you can buy this adventure-ready gem now from the Classic Driver website. Photographs© Classic Driver.
