custom porsche builders kelly-moss have built a safari-style 911 dubbed ‘willy’ for exploring america’s tougher terrains. the off-road sportscar has been modified with a long list of custom parts including a carbon-kevlar roof, a 17-gallon fuel cell and a 3.4-liter engine that pushes 340 horsepower through a custom gearbox.

the director of kelly-moss operations andy kilcoyne discovered the vehicle, which started off as a 911 3.2 carrera before all of the configurations. highlights include a 30” black oak led curved light bar has been added to the front bumper, a 30” curved rear light bar tied into reverse lamp circuit, and a 40” combo spot / flood curved light bar at the roof.

over the course of about 10 months every piece of the car was pulled apart, replaced, renewed, rebuilt, or reimagined. the wheel wells were made  2 ¾” larger while maintaining the stock radius to look unmodified to the untrained eye. meanwhile, five inches of sheet metal has been removed from the front inner wheel wells for extra clearance, making room for the fuchs rollers and all-terrain tires.

the build also features 6-pot brembo brakes, reinforced chassis/suspension components, motec electrical, and a kmr custom full roll cage. there’s even a rooftop tent to accommodate any off-grid adventures. despite all the fabrication and reinforcement the ‘willy’ only weighs 2,500 pounds. it is currently up for auction at a price of $375,000 USD with the full listing available to see at vicci auctions.
