A True Head Turner

We included a car from Makellos Classics in a list of our favorite Porsche custom cars in 2018, so when we were alerted of their most recent build we were pretty excited. The team at Makellos Classics got its hands on a European-spec 1978 Porsche 911SC. They knew just what to do with it, and the Safari build began.

The team went through the entire car updating the frame, suspension, transmission, engine, wheels, brakes, and interior. Makellos Classics customized the car wherever needed to build it into the Safari vehicle of your dreams. It added 9eleven Raven S headlights, hood-mounted Cibie rally driving lights, a vintage-style roof rack, fiberglass ducktail spoiler, and so much more.

The 1978 Porsche 911SC ‘Safari’ is as much a piece of art as it is a true off-road hooligan. As you can see in the video above, the car looks amazing, but its performance matches up to those looks. Makellos Classics didn’t design and build this car to be just a showroom piece, and it didn’t cheap out on spare any expense in the name of excellence. The car is a fantastic example of what a 1978 911SC can become with considerable skill, good planning, and a true vision.

To learn more about the specifics of the build, check it out on Makellos Classics website. While there, you can see some of the company’s other builds and services. While the Safari build is the most recent one that caught our eye, there’s plenty more to see. You can also check out the gallery of images for this specific build below.
