Meet Willy, a no-nonsense rally car which is a Porsche Carrera at heart

14-08-2019 17:15
The full name of this car should go along the lines of ‘Safari Porsche 911 (930) 3.2 Carrera’, but its owner lovingly calls it Willy. The retro-styled ride rolled off the assembly line in 1984 and has had several owners, but it wasn’t until Andy Kilcoyne, founder of U.S. auto shop Kelly-Moss, bought it that things got truly interesting.

The full name of this car should go along the lines of ‘Safari Porsche 911 (930) 3.2 Carrera’, but its owner lovingly calls it Willy. The retro-styled ride rolled off the assembly line in 1984 and has had several owners, but it wasn’t until Andy Kilcoyne, founder of U.S. auto shop Kelly-Moss, bought it that things got truly interesting.

The sporty coupe was essentially turned into a hardcore rally car with enviable cross-country potential. For starters, the tuner redesigned the entire suspension from scratch. Then new aluminum bumpers were added, followed by a Black Oak LED bar spanning 750 millimeters (almost 30 inches) wide.

Andy then added a roof rack and out a spare wheel on it, which made Willy look like a dandy in a fancy hat. Be sure to view our entire gallery and watch the video (both courtesy of Kelly-Moss), you will be impressed!

The unique off-roader rides on a set of 17-inch BRAID Fuchs replicas clad in BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO LT245/65/R17 rubber.

The cabin, predictably enough, holds Recaro seats along with a sturdy roll bar.

Okay, how do you like Willy?
