Chassis No. 9110201179

Since its debut, the Porsche 911 has proven its versatile capabilities time and again as a grand tourer, dominant international sports racing car, and championship-winning rally car. The latter was first seen just four months after it went on sale in the form of a works-entered 911 in the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally, with driver Herbert Linge and Porsche engineer Peter Falk scoring a class win and taking fifth overall. European Rally Championships for the 911 followed in 1966, 1967, and 1968 – its rear-biased weight distribution and spectacular reliability making it a formidable frontline rally car. Porsche upped the ante in 1971, entering what was considered to be the world's toughest rally: the 4,000-mile East African Safari Rally. While only one works 911 survived the treacherous route through Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, finishing fifth, numerous private 911s claimed International Rally wins throughout the 1970s, paving the way for the mighty 953 to conquer the Paris-Dakar Rally in the 1980s.

This mud-slinging era of Porsche's history has inspired countless owners to convert their 911s to "Safari" specification with a lifted stance, large tires, and plenty of additional forward lighting. This 1970 Porsche 911 E "Safari" Coupe began life as a standard left-hand drive 911 E before its remarkable restoration and conversion by renowned marque expert Bob Diers of Classic Automobile Restoration & Service (CARS) in Omaha, Nebraska. Still retaining some of its original Schwarz (Black) finish neatly contrasted by a red front nose, front and rear bumpers, and engine lid, the car was equipped with a stainless-steel roof rack, driving lights, period-correct ATS five-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion rally tires, Sparco mud flaps, and other Safari accessories during its conversion. The interior was trimmed in black leather with delightfully retro black-and-white houndstooth cloth seat inserts and features a 911 Carrera RSR-style thick grip suede-wrapped steering wheel. Mechanically, the 911 received a raised Bilstein suspension, a Tarett Engineering adjustable sway bar, ceramic brake pads, as well as upgraded headers and exhaust. Presented with a charming patina, this unique 911 is sure to blast down forested roads, desert trails, and beaches while paying homage to one of the most exciting periods in Porsche motorsport history.
