This 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera was purchased by the current owner in 2017, and it was later modified, reportedly by Vali Motorsports of Corona, California, with a lifted suspension, all-terrain tires, skid plates, a roll cage, and a limited-slip differential. The car is finished in red over a black interior that features six-point harnesses, power accessories, air conditioning, and carbon-fiber seats upholstered in black Alcantara. Power comes from a 3.2-liter flat-six paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. This modified 911 is now offered by the selling dealer in California on behalf of the current owner with a matching spare wheel and tire, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Tennessee title.
The car was re-painted red under previous ownership and features a rear spoiler and an electric sunroof. Off-road bumpers, mud flaps, a hood-mounted light pod, front and rear skid plates, and a replacement windshield were added during the safari-style build that was completed in October 2020. The seller states that a combination of LED and HID lighting elements are used, and additional lights are mounted to the front skid plate. Paint scratches are shown close-up in the gallery below.
The 16″ Braid wheels are finished in gray and are wrapped in 215/65 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 tires. A matching spare wheel and tire are mounted on a custom tire carrier affixed to the rear window. The lifted suspension is said to include MCS dampers and replacement torsion bars, suspension bushings, wheel bearings, axles, and front camber plates. Refurbished brake calipers are mounted over replacement rotors, and a Tilton hydraulic handbrake was installed during the build.
The interior features carbon-fiber seats upholstered in black Alcantara with red stitching and mounted on adjustable seat rails. The cabin also includes powder-coated paneling, floorboards, pedals, and a four-point roll cage, along with red six-point Sabelt harnesses. Amenities include air conditioning, power locks, power windows, and an aftermarket stereo with USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The dash was re-covered during the build, and the rear seat was removed.
The MOMO Prototipo steering wheel frames a 7k-rpm tachometer with a VMS Motorsports red dial as well as a VDO speedometer, an analog clock, and gauges for oil temperature, oil pressure, oil level, and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows 127k miles, 1k of which were added during current ownership.
The 3.2-liter flat-six was reportedly resealed during current ownership, and the seller states that the air conditioning compressor and fan belts were replaced during the build.
Power is sent to the wheels via a five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential, the latter of which is said to have been installed by Vali Motorsports.
Additional photos of the car during and prior to the build are available in the photo gallery below.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage and lists registration history in Tennessee since its first entry in 1998.
