Porsche brought the mysterious Porsche 911 to the testOctober 22, 2020
In all likelihood, the German automaker is busy developing a factory version of the Porsche Safari 911.
Auto parts makers seem to be obsessed with the Safari 911, which mainly features an oversized suspension that makes the rally car more “live” in the city. Several companies are already offering vintage versions of the 911 Safari, and some are planning to build on the new 2021 Porsche 911 Carrera. But what if Porsche decides to offer a factory version of the Safari 911?
Porsche’s Safari 911 was first mentioned back in 2013, but no concrete evidence that a model is in development has yet emerged. However, in a video that appeared on YouTube, a prototype model, somewhat reminiscent of a Porsche Safari 911, was seen on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
This is a 911 Carrera S, unlike any 911 we have known before. It has massive wheel arch extensions that are probably used for testing. And while it definitely looks shorter than the crossover, this prototype is much taller than the standard 911, so it can easily pull up to a parking lot without the risk of scratching the front end. This 911 is unlikely to be the fastest in the Porsche lineup, but with 379 horsepower in Carrera guise and 443 horsepower in the S model, it is still pretty nimble.
