Vagabund Moto has been sculpting some impressive builds lately in their creative shop. Most of them are bikes, but one of their major projects recently has been the custom safari kit for the Porsche 924 S/944. Made in collaboration with NINE ELEVEN OUTLAW and DakarGarage, the custom kit promises to offer a unique off-roading experience.
According to the Austria-based custom automotive studio, the first batch of the safari kit sold like hot pancakes, and they again got back to Tom Boder’s outfit to build a one-off Porsche 924 Safari Special to have the bragging rights.
Designer: Moto Vagabund, NINE ELEVEN OUTLAW and DakarGarage
The initial inspiration for this build came from the rising popularity of the East African Safari rally showcasing the Porsche 911 in the classic 1978 Martini livery. Coming from the minds of three ace automotive outfits in their own respective crafts, the 924 Safari Special gets a slew of superficial and mechanical hardware upgrades to make the powerful V8-powered donor a capable dirt road machine.
Cosmetic changes come in the form of a lift kit, complete black steel rims (available in optional gold hue) in off-roading tires and a perforated skid plate. The custom shop fits the classic Porsche with a custom roof rack accommodating a spare tire and crushproof Pelican gear case to get that decisive rally car character. There are HELLA Rallye 1000 lights replacing the stock pair, given this capable Porsche will take on the roughest of roads, the most difficult terrain, and the harshest weather conditions.
The interior modifications on the 924 Safari Special include a three-arm Sparco steering wheel, Terratrip rally computer and a short-throw gear shifter. The monochrome livery on the custom off-roader is a nod to the Vagabund’s signature styling coming in the form of a checkered pattern for the seats. The theme continues to the pearl white exterior color contrasted by the red and gray accents, Vagabund logos and white script on the sides.
Given the exclusivity of Vagabund Moto x NINE ELEVEN OUTLAW x DakarGarage Porsche 924 Safari Special, it is priced at €35,000 (approximately $37,688). Perhaps, the ideal four-wheeler for a Porsche classic car fan who likes to get their wheels dirty.
