Russell Built Safari Porsche 911 emerges
Based on a 964 Turbo, the Safari Sportsman by Russell Built Fabrication follows its Baja-style 911 of 2019
California’s Russell Built Fabrication raised eyebrows with its Baja-style 911 at the 2019 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. Now it’s back with a new offering: the Safari Sportsman kit for the 964 generation 911. This new design is based on a 964 Turbo, and features a raised ground clearance, lengthened wheelbase and wider track. All this, so we are told, while retaining the responsive and sporty feel of any Porsche 911.
The Safari Sportsman kit can be ordered either as a package or in modular form. This enables owners to pick from a list of accessories and options to go as far as they please towards the full look. Crucially, the kit bolts straight on and requires little to no fabrication work to the original body, leaving the option of returning the base car back to its factory form at any time. The list of parts is comprehensive and includes all of the chassis components and bodywork required to give a 964 Turbo the safari rally look.
Prices for the kit start at $135,000, which includes installation.
