2022 Porsche 911 Safari

2022 Porsche 911 Safari

It seems Porsche is finally building the off-road 911 you’ve been asking for all these years

The 2022 Porsche 911 Safari is a rumored, upcoming variant of the company’s iconic sports car. Far from confirmed for production, the 911 Safari has been spotted testing on public roads a few times since late 2020, a sign that Porsche is considering some sort of 911 with a raised suspension. The Safari name isn’t official either, it’s just based on a nickname given to a handful of rally-spec cars that Porsche built in the past. The German company also created a 911 Vision Safari concept in 2012, but it kept it hidden from us until November 2020, when it unveiled numerous never-before-seen show cars and designs. Is Porsche actually working on a production 911 Safari. If so, what will it bring to the table? Let’s try and answer these questions in the speculative review below.

Updated 01/25/2022: The future Porsche 911 Safari was caught testing once again, this time in its production shape. You can spot the different front bumper, new air intakes in the engine hood and wider side sills. The rear also gets a new bumper and new exhaust pipes.

How does it stack up to the rest of the lineup and does GTS still stand for the sweet spot in Porsche’s lineup?

2021 Porsche 911 (964) EV Restomod by Everrati

2021 Porsche 911 (964) EV Restomod by Everrati

This Porsche 911 (964) restomod might look sexy in red, but you might not like what it’s sporting under the hood

There’s nothing quite like a classic Porsche, and the 964-gen 911 holds a special place in a lot of hearts. When the 964 911 entered production in 1989, it was considered to be 85-percent new compared to the model it replaced – not only a bold move, but a hard thing to achieve considering it had to retain that timeless 911 look. The 964 is long gone and is now considered a classic, and that’s why so many restomods are popping up these days – the 964 is at that ripe age. Not all restomods are created equal, though, and that’s where this 500-horsepower Porsche 911 (964) restomod comes into play. Fair warning – it might not please the purists.
