The owner is planning to take it on an epic adventure from Germany to Dakar.
We've seen several off-road conversions of the Porsche 911 inspired by the classic 911 Safari rally car such as the rugged RUF Rodeo and the upcoming Gemballa Avalanche 4X4, but this is the first time we've seen the new 992-generation Porsche 911 get the rugged off-road treatment.
It's being built by Delta4x4, a German aftermarket tuner that specializes in crazy off-road builds. Delta4x4 has built off-road versions of the Tesla Model 3 and the Porsche Cayenne in the past, and now the tuner is turning its attention to the new Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.
Development of the project is still at an early stage, but render designs released by the tuner gives us an idea of what to expect.
The off-road-ready Porsche 911 is being built for a German entrepreneur who wanted to transform their 911 Carrera 4S into a rally car and take it on an epic adventure from Germany to Dakar, recreating the Paris-Dakar Rally. As part of the transformation, the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is being fitted with a front-mounted light bar, flared wheel arches, and a custom roof rack. Improving the car's off-road capability is a reinforced chassis with an increased ground clearance of 9.8 inches and chunky off-road tires.
The off-road ready Porsche 911 is finished in white with contrasting black, yellow, and grey racing stripes. Since this modern Porsche 911 Safari homage is based on the 992-generation Carrera 4S, power will be sourced from a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine producing 444 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque, unless Delta4X4 plans to extract more power. 0-62 mph in the standard Carrera 4S takes 3.3 seconds with the PDK dual-clutch gearbox and Sport Chrono Package installed before it maxes out at 190 mph.
We're very intrigued to see how this project progresses, but we'll have to wait until 2021 for the full reveal.
