This Baja-Ready Porsche 911 Could Be A Bargain

For Sale / Comments

Assuming it comes up for sale again.

About a year ago we discovered a heavily modified 1969 Porsche 911 that was up for sale. Originally built by Michael Lightbourn for the 2017 SEMA Show, this mountain climbing-ready Baja 911 is also fully street-legal. Although it looks like a classic, though newly steeled-bodied 911, underneath its skin lies a bona fide off-road Baja chassis that's been coated in U-POL Raptor lining. That's literally the same stuff used in the load bed of a truck, ideal for preventing damage from loose stones and assorted other objects. It's an overall pretty trick package and yet nobody seems to want it.

It was just recently re-posted for sale on eBay with a lowered price tag. Last year the price was $38,975. Now, the starting bid dropped to $23,700 and yet zero bids were placed. Also worth noting is that there was a different seller this time around, but no matter.

It's kind of surprising something like this hasn't sold, even at a discounted price because there's an awful lot to like. Power comes from a Volkswagen air-cooled 2.3-liter flat-four paired to a four-speed manual gearbox. Nothing was mentioned about output, but there's a high aftermarket availability for high-performance VW engine components. The seller claims, with the proper modifications, anywhere from 180 hp to over 200 hp is possible.

Also, take note of the four open exhausts exiting above the engine. Other additions include a safety harness, a full roll cage, independent front and rear suspension, shock absorbers on each of the 15-inch custom three-piece billet performance racing wheels, and Maxxis Bighorn off-road tires.

The roof rack offers space for the likely necessary spare wheel but there's little extra space for much else. Two sets of Bully Dog LED light bars are also part of the package and no traditional headlights were used. In fact, there's only one piece of glass - the windshield. The side and rear windows were removed for improved airflow and safety reasons. Step inside and you'll find a pair of racing bucket seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and side-intrusion bars. A full ARC audio system has also been installed. The body is covered in special stealth paint purchased directly from the US Air Force surplus department. Supposedly, it's the same finish used on the Stealth Bomber.

Now that everyone is aware this Baja-ready 911 has been put up for sale again, now with an even lower starting bid price, there's a good chance it will find a buyer who will have something totally unique to have a lifetime of fun with.
