View all 28 Photos

A one-of-a-kind, off-road 911.

Built by Russell Built Fabrication for the SEMA Battle of the Builders, this custom 911 is unlike any other Porsche build you’ve seen before. The brief required teams to build the most capable, high-end, and stylish off-road 911. The 1991 Porsche 911 Baja Prototype #1 achieved the goal with ease. After reaching the final in the event, it became the first in a series of limited-edition bespoke and numbered “safari” cars completed by Russell Built Fabrication.

The workshop started this special build with a 964 Carrera 4 Cabriolet chassis. After reinforcing the frame with a 4130 chromoly roll cage, the team modified the body while maintaining its classic silhouette. Custom composite panels and other new elements add add 15 inches in width as well as 3 inches in length. Other body modifications include wide louvered fenders, a carbon-fiber roof scoop, and heavy-duty bumpers at both front and rear. A white paint finish completes the clean look.

The bespoke interior is equally stylish. It features Olive Green leather and black and diamond-quilted Alcantara accents, as well as a leather trim that extends across the dashboard, headlining, and door panels. The dashboard features a digital screen and a three-spoke Sparco steering wheel. However, since the car has an “RS” style specification, it features a fresh air vent instead of air-conditioning or a stereo system. One of the highlights of the build, the custom 3.8-liter flat-six engine produces 360bhp and 310lb-ft of torque. This car also comes with a five-speed G50 manual transmission, Motec electrical components, and a custom-built, FIA specification fuel cell. The 1991 Porsche 911 Baja Prototype #1 is currently available to buy at auction through Collecting Cars. The current bid at the time of writing is $235,500, with the auction ending on February 5, 2022. Photographs© Russell Built Fabrication.
